Summer Reading

ASFMS Summer Reading 2017

“Reading exercises the muscle of imagination. We need strong minds to make a better world.” Tony Abbott

Dear Middle School Students and Parents/Guardians:

Our summer reading program is designed to help students become lifelong readers. The selections have been chosen to encourage students to read for enjoyment. The more students read, the more they learn.

If your child’s comfortable reading level is below fourth grade, please ask your child’s reading teacher for assistance in selecting summer reading materials that may or may not be on the attached required list.

Sincerely,

The Alan Shawn Feinstein ELA Department


Summer Requirements

Read 2 books. Select one from the list and one of your choosing.

Each book should be approved by your parent or guardian.

Complete one activity for each of the books you selected.

If you have any questions over the summer, please contact the ELA curriculum coordinator, Cynthia Ballard at ballardcynthia@coventryschools.net.

**If your child has direct reading support from a reading teacher, please refer to the ATTENTION READING STUDENTS link below to support your child's reading development during the summer.

The newsletter also provides alternate reading suggestions that may be closer to your child's independent reading level. The independent reading level is the level at which your child reads with at least 95% fluency (they can decode 19/20 words, and they understand the text/story with relative ease).

This summer’s Rhode Island Library and Information Services theme for teens is Get in the Game: Read! Information about summer reading activities can be found at http://www.olis.ri.gov/services/srp/.
