Dear Parents and Students,
Summer vacation is a time of relaxation and fun, but it is also a time of preparation for the next academic year. The summer assignment that is to follow is designed with this preparation in mind. It reflects not only the level of texts students will encounter in their new grade, but also the standards they will have to adhere to in all of their oral and written work.
Considering the length of the novels, it is vital that students start on these assignments on time. The sooner students start to read these works, the more leisurely they can complete the assignments. Please also be advised that the two book forms will count toward the book forms students will have to complete by June based on their independent reading books. These book forms count as 10% of the marking period and final grade every marking period. No late packets will be accepted without a note from a parent, and lateness may result is a loss of points.
Assignment: Your task is to complete 2 Independent Reading Book Forms over the summer. One must be the starred book (**) and the other can be your choice from the list. Each question should be answered thoroughly and with evidence, when requested. Enjoy J
