READCamp is the free virtual training camp for Summer Reading for K-12 students. Students participate in training, drills and practice in order to maintain literacy skills over the summer.
The lists are full of book titles to keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer. Four summer reading book lists are available: Birth-Preschool, K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Each list is available to download for free.
We know summertime can provide tremendous opportunities for kids to accelerate reading, to experience the social-emotional impact of good literature and stories, and to make up for any lost learning time as access to instruction and reading has had to be completely rethought due to the pandemic. Research has proven that in a typical year, summer reading supports skill gains, and its absence leads to widening skill gaps. With this in mind, our Scholastic Summer Reading Promise is to help you get books in the hands of kids, support social-emotional well-being, build skills and create community among kids.
