Longmeadow Public Schools: Glenbrook Middle School
Grade 6 Summer Reading 2016
Dear Grade Six Students and Families!
Welcome to Glenbrook Middle School. We know that summer reading will encourage you to maintain skills learned in previous classes. Hopefully, your summer reading will also inspire you to move beyond levels and genres which you have explored in the past. We are asking that you read two novels over the summer.
One requirement is a choice book. This can be any genre you choose. We have included some websites below that have many excellent suggestions.
The second required novel is Hatchet by Gary Paulsen . While reading this novel, please complete the vocabulary pages we have attached to this assignment. We will also be using Hatchet extensively at the beginning of the year in ELA and science classes. It would be wise to read Hatchet after reading your choice book and towards the end of summer.
If you would like to borrow a copy of Hatchet there will be several copies left in the office at Glenbrook.
We are so excited to meet you and begin a new phase of your education at Glenbrook Middle School!
