Summer Contracts & Journals

Summer Contracts & Journals include resources for critical reading practice over the long summer break. These resources offer chances for students to identify, log, and write about the books they read.


We all know children lose literacy skills over the summer. But the skill loss can be avoided if students are encouraged to read over the summer. Now, Raz-Plus and Kids A-Z can help. By using the resources on both sites, students get to read a book in four different modes: listen, online read with word support, online read without support, and traditional book format. What a great way to reinforce and build their reading skills! And it's as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4 to set up!

On Raz-Plus

Step 1 - Select books for students in your class.

Step 2 - Have students select which books they want to read from your book list using the Summer Reading Order Form.

Step 3 - Students turn over the order forms to volunteer book builders who can assemble the books for your students.

Step 4 - Have parents and students sign Summer Reading Contracts and send home the Monthly Reading Report Forms so students can log the books they have read.

Let Kids A-Z Help Too!

Step 1 - Assign the appropriate level booksed to each student in your class. Name their assignment Summer Reading.

Step 2 - Have parents and students sign the Summer Reading Contracts. Now your students can log on, read, listen, record, and more!

Step 3 - Log on to Kids A-Z Student Management at any time and see what your students are reading.

Step 4 - Make sure students have Reading Room access enabled so they can browse books for engaging summer reading at any level.
