We are excited that you are joining the A Form this year as an incoming sixth grade student. We expect you to read a minimum of six (6) books from the Summer Reading List, and we encourage you to read more. Please record all of your vacation reading - listed titles or free choices - using the Form A Reading Log.
As the academic demands begin to increase in middle-school, it is important that reading for fun continues to be a part of your life. During this summer, we ask that you select and read one (1) book from the list for family sharing. Some suggestions on ways to accomplish this are:
- Setting a weekly time and day for a read-aloud together.
- Reading independently and then, gathering for a discussion of ideas.
- Reading a title together, followed by viewing the film of the same title for a spirited comparison of book (free read) vs. movie.
One (1) book has already been selected for you; in addition to reading this one pre-selected book, you will choose at least five (5) more titles from the Form A list. Choose one or more titles from all of the following categories for a minimum of six (6) books:
1 – Required
1 – American Library Association Award Winner
2 – Free choice for fiction
1 – Non-fiction
1 – Family read-aloud from any list
Happy reading, and have a wonderful summer!
Mr. Brown, Mr. Harrison & Mr. Levner
