Sunshine State Readers 2017-2018

These books are not REQUIRED reading, but are ENCOURAGED if students would like to try out for the Book Bowl which is held in May. In 2016-17, two of my reading students qualified and competed in the Book Bowl. They both had a great time and said they would try it again next year. Ms. Jimenez does a great job of preparing them!


Students can begin reading these books this summer and take AR tests when school starts in August. I suggest taking notes by summarizing each chapter so it will be easier to remember the books. These will count toward our first nine weeks' word count goal, which will be individualized for each student.
