3rd Grade Summer Reading List

Greater Atlanta Christian School expects all students to read during the summer. Parents are encouraged to participate in this process by reading aloud. This suggested list for summer reading is not exclusive but attempts to provide choices for various reading abilities and interests. Children need guidance in selecting the right books. Students entering 3rd grade should read seven (7) books during the summer. The book title and author’s name should be entered on the GAC Reading Log and signed by a parent. The form should be submitted to the teacher during the first week of the school year.
