Summer Reading Grades 5, 6, 7 & 8

Summer Reading Assignment 2018


Dear Students:

I hope that you have wonderful summer plans ahead of you and that within those adventures, you also plan to read a book or two. Summer reading is a wonderful way to develop and hone your reading and writing skills.

The required summer reading for fifth graders is Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass. Fifth graders must complete one of the suggested assignments for the book.

The required summer reading books for sixth, seventh, and eighth  graders are Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass and Pay It Forward: Young Readers’ Edition by Catherine Ryan Hyde. Students must complete one assignment for Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life and the required assignment for Pay It Forward: Young Readers’ Edition .

Take your time reading these books, as these novels will be the first books that you will work with when school starts. Please annotate and look for details about major characters and events. You may make bullet notes at the end of each chapter as a form of summary. Be prepared to discuss your books.

Be sure to bring the assignments and the books with you on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. The work you complete for summer reading will be among your first grades of the first trimester.

If you have questions regarding the summer assignments, you can reach me at w q uigley@hohokus.org   .

Have a good summer, and Mrs. Frassetto and I will see you in September.

Sincerely, Dr. Quigley
