Summer Reading (Middle School Students)
In order to promote continuity of literacy skills year-round, all students entering sixth, seventh, and eighth grade are required to participate in summer reading. Students will be expected to read a novel of their choice from the provided Sunshine State Readers book list (see attached list).
Although you will not have projects or written assignments to complete during the break, be prepared to engage in class discussions, complete novel activities, and take a novel assessment based on the book during the first week of school.
All of these novels are available at your local library, but we encourage you to purchase your own copy. Have a pen, highlighter, and stick notes on hand. Annotate and take notes in the margins. Highlight a quote that you love. Put your literacy skills into practice, just as we will be doing throughout the school year.
In addition, this summer reading novel will be your first entry into our 2021-2022 gradebook. More information about quiz dates will be sent home during the first week of school. Until then, Happy Reading!
