Summer Reading

2020 Summer Reading List

This year our Annual Book Fair will be an online affair hosted by Scholastic, click here to access.  Due to the terms of this Fair, they do not customize titles available and are limited in providing titles that I suggest for summer reading.  However, an effort was made to suggest some of their titles.  My lists are based on well-reviewed titles from various publishers.  Scholastic provides quality titles that you may choose to read!

The availability of the mandatory reading is limited to two titles, Out of the Dust and We Were LiarsSavvy and Nothing But the Truth will not be offered online.  All assignments associated with the mandatory reading are below. 

This Summer Reading List covers all grades and are “recommended” suggestions. Please note that I have provided Lexile Scores, Genre, and marked some titles for “Mature Readers”. 

Thank you for your support, Mr. Posner
