Summer Reading

Entering First - Fourth Grade

Lake Mead Christian Academy is utilizing www.bookadventure.com as our summer reading program for our incoming first through fourth grade students.  Parents need to set up an online profile and then register their child(ren). If you already set up an account last summer you do not need to set up another account. The program is designed for your child to take online comprehension quizzes after completing the book. 
 

We recommend students entering third and fourth grade to select one or two books from the following lists.
