Summer Reading – Part 4

Leave a comment

Every few days I’ve been posting a section of the Inly School’s Summer Reading List which is based on the Bonnie Campbell Hill Reading Continuum.  Today’s list is for the Developing Reader, and the books share the characteristics listed below. By the way, Come Fly With Me, pictured on the right, is a great choice for a read aloud. The black and white dog’s name is Woggy, and he’s stuffed. His friend, Cosmos, is a toy plane. They are flying over Paris – checking out the sites.  Woggy is incredibly adorable, isn’t he?  

–         texts include simple plots and only a few characters
