Summer Readers Club 2012 Announced

TAL is excited to announce that our annual Summer Readers Club will continue in 2012!

New for this year, we are encouraging children to read books recommended by the MENSA for Kids reading program.

Reading lists are located here:

Students of any age can participate, from kindergarten through 12th grade.  In order to meet everyone’s needs, the reading lists are grouped by reading level, not by age or grade in school.

Reading level groups are as follows:

Kindergarten through 3rd grade (Fountas/Pinell level A-N; DRA level 1-30)
4th through 6th grade  (Fountas/Pinell level O-Y; DRA level 34-60)
7th through 8th grade (Fountas/Pinell level Z; DRA level 70-80)
9th through 12th grade

 How it works:

  • Students and parents determine which reading level group is most appropriate for them (Farmington schools teachers can provide your student’s current reading level, if needed)
  • Students select from the list of books for their level, and come to the group prepared to discuss whichever book they’ve read that week.  [Not all students will read the same book during the same week]
  • If a student finishes ALL the books on their list, he/she will be eligible to receive a certificate from MENSA and a free MENSA for Kids t-shirt!
To accommodate schedules, we will offer two meetings each week:  Tuesday and Wednesday, both 5:30 – 6:30 pm, at the Heritage Park Nature Center.  Our backup site in case of rain is the Farmington Hills Library on 12 Mile Road.

To sign up for each session, please go to the Sign Up Genius link below.

If you are away for summer and still want your kids to participate, or for any other questions, please contact Triman Jagdev,

[Note: This information will remain available at the Summer Readers Club link in the top navigation bar of our website.]
