Summer Reading & Math Work

This summer your child will need to read two (2) books. Book one is a required read and book two is your child’s choice. The required book is Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick. Students will need to answer the questions provided and turn them in on the first day of school in August. (A book report form will not need to be completed for Wonderstruck.)

When choosing their second book, it can be fiction or nonfiction. It may not be a book they have already read in fourth grade. Reading over the summer is very important because it develops the mind. There are a lot of places you can go to find a book for your child. Attached you will find a list of age-appropriate books if you are having a hard time coming up with one. The attached book report form will need to be filled out for book two and returned on the first day of school in August.

Your child will need to complete the attached math packet. Our math series is My Math by McGraw-Hill. Please be sure multiplication and division tables from 0-12 are mastered to ease their transition into more mental math in fifth grade. I have attached a list of websites in the packet that are fun and can re-establish skills learned this past year. (This packet can also be downloaded below.)

Summer is also a great time to start talking about ideas for the Social Studies Fair this year. This will be their first time participating in the Social Studies Fair. This presentation will be given at the Academic Fair during Catholic Schools Week in January.

Congratulation! Your child is now on their way to being a fifth grader. This summer work for reading and math will be their first grades of the first nine weeks of the school year. It is important for them to do well.
