7th Grade Summer Reading

The students should read the book, The View from Saturday, by E.L. Konigsburg, and be ready to discuss the novel when they come to school in September. Each current student has been given a copy of the novel and more copies are available in the middle school office. As a class, we will be reviewing the book and writing about the book’s themes, literary elements and points of view. There is no written summer assignment, but it is important that every student reads the book.

    8th Grade Summer Reading

Welcome to the 8th grade! In order to gain an understanding of your reading comprehension and writing skills, I am asking that you select a book (fiction or nonfiction) to read over the summer. The book should be new to you (a book you have not read before). Aim to find a book that is suited to your reading level, reading preferences, and your interests (Parents are encouraged to assist in the selection of your summer reading book).

You do not need to buy your book. Between classroom libraries, our school library, and public libraries, you will be able to find a book that suits your interests and reading preferences.

As you are reading your chosen book, look for information pertaining to character development, setting, theme/central idea, and plot (particularly conflict, climax, and resolution). Then, complete the Bookmark Book Review (a trifold sheet) to complete evidence of your reading. The Bookmark Book Review will be due on or before September 20, 2019.

Upon your return to school, you will be using the tri-fold sheet to write a book review or deliver a book talk (more information on this will be administered in September). The information and evidence that you include within your tri-fold bookmark will help you complete your book review/book talk, so it is in your best interest to be as detailed and as thorough as you can.

If you have questions in regards to the summer reading, feel free to email me at edaley@scsd.org. Happy reading!

Sincerely,
Ms. Daley
