Summer Reading and Summer Math

Grades 1-6


This summer, please encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes a day and to complete one math activity (of at least 10 minutes) for a total of 25 days. Here is a calendar-based log to help your child keep track of their work. Teachers will collect your child's log when school starts again in the fall.


Reading

Our partners at the Nevins Library helped to develop the recommended book lists below. The library has dedicated Summer Reading shelves available with these titles and more.



Math
The websites below are good sources of standards-aligned math activities.

If your student cannot access the sites above on a regular basis, they can complete the MATHO board below for their summer math work and turn it into their teacher in the fall. 



Grades 7-8


Reading
Students must read at least one of the listed books over the summer and complete this question sheet before school resumes in the fall. This is in preparation for a Socratic seminar facilitated by their teacher during the first week of school. This is for a grade. Teachers will include an indication of completion on the first trimester progress report, and can also choose to include participation in this seminar in the first trimester grade. Students are encouraged to consult with teachers and their parents/guardians when selecting a title. For this summer reading to count toward 20+ book club, students must complete the required MPS book report form. 

Students can find their summer reading selections at the Nevins Library where there is also a fun array of summer programs for children and teens.

From Our Friends at the Nevins Library
We are here to help meet your summer reading needs -- we have lots of new books on our Summer Reading shelves, and lots of your favorites! We also have a new Summer Activities booklet that includes a log where you can track your summer reading and math - you can download it here, or come by the library to pick it up in person (along with other fun summer swag - and books, of course!). As usual, we'll be offering an entertaining variety of programs and special events throughout the summer, and you can earn snazzy beads and be entered into weekly prize drawings by attending library programs and using the Summer Activities log.
