ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS,  by Scott O'Dell

Island Of The Blue Dolphins

 

Summarize what you have read.  Write one summary on the beginning of the book, one summary on  the middle of the book and summarize the ending of the book.  Then write a brief summary of how you  felt about the story and whether or not you liked it and would recommend it to others.  All notes will be checked  in the first week back to school in September.  Your notes will be checked, but remember these are your personal notes and their purpose is to refresh your memory for tests and discussions which  will take place in the Fall.  YOU MAY USE THESE NOTES IN THE TEST.

Remember:  You will be taking a test on  WONDER  OR  ISLAND OF BLUE DOLPHINS  so make sure your notes  are clear and you include all the details, because this will help you to remember all the important events  from the book.  We will review the book in the first week of September.  A test or project will follow .

Remember:  It is important to read throughout the summer, so your reading skills remain  strong.  You  should read at least two or three additional books.  Try to read some of your  personal choice books or  choose from the list below.
