YEAR:   SUMMER, 2019   READING 

5th Grade Book:    WONDER  by R. J. Palacio OR  ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS   by Scott O' Dell 

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.

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.
