Summer Reading – 6th grade

Dear Incoming Sixth Graders,
We are so excited to welcome you to middle school. Sixth grade is a big transition, and we know you want to be ready! One of the expectations we have for our new sixth graders is that you read a book over the summer. It can be any book of your choice that has not been made into a movie. All you have to do is choose one (Choose lots more, if you’d like!) and come to school in September ready to share your thoughts on it. (You’ll find information on how to access books online below.)

Here are a few great choices for sixth graders:
The Crossover, K. Alexander
New Kid, J. Craft
The Benefits of Being an Octopus, A. Braden
Resistance, J. Nielsen
Ground Zero, A. Gratz
House Arrest, K.A. Holt
The Hidden Oracle, R. Riordan
Alone, M. Freeman

So choose a great book, find a shady spot, and enjoy! We’ll see you in September!

Warm regards,
Mrs. Decker, Ms. Fridholm, Mrs. Wlazlo

Summer Reading – 8th Grade

Welcome to 8th grade! Each year, you are required to complete a summer reading task in order to provide your new ELA teacher with an understanding of your comprehension skills. This summer’s reading task will be an extension of a series that you know and love from 7th grade.

In seventh grade ELA, you enjoyed the first four books in the Percy Jackson series. This summer, you will keep that enjoyment going with the fifth and final book in the series: The Last Olympian. A copy of the book will be given to you at the end of the year in your Ms. Mamone’s 7th grade ELA class.

Your only job during the summer months is to read and enjoy the book. When you return to school, you will be given an open-book fill-in-the-blank assessment to check that you did your reading. This assessment will occur in class on Friday, September 30th.

If you have questions in regard to the summer reading, feel free to email me at Happy reading!

Ms. Daley
