As we wind down from an unexpected and challenging end to the school year, Oblock is not issuing a required summer reading assignment for the 2020 summer. We hope our students take this time to relax and recharge before jumping back into the classroom in August.
While there is no required summer reading assignment for the 2020-2021 school year, we still encourage our families to find ways to incorporate reading, in any form it may take, into the summer months as a means of keeping the learning going, allowing students time to explore literacy through the genres and formats they enjoy most, and using stories to come together as families.
This might be a great time for students to pick up the latest graphic novel or comic book they wanted to read, listen to an audiobook while they enjoy the outdoors, read the comic strips in the newspaper or even explore current events or topics that interest them through magazines, newspapers, and websites.
The following article contains links to several different summer reading lists for all ages and levels:

Have a safe and relaxing summer, and we will jump back into books together in the fall!
