Summer Reading Team D

Summer Reading Assignment 2015-2016

Team D-Grades 5 and 6


By the time they return to school in August, 5th and 6th graders are required to read one Newbery award-winning novel from the list below. You should be sure to take notes on this book and be prepared to write about and discuss this book when you start school in August.  In addition, you must read an additional book of your choosing and fill out the attached Book Card (on the choice book, NOT the Newbery book) to the best of your ability. The choice book must be at least 150 pages. You may choose whatever book you feel is comfortable for your reading level and interest.


These books should both be read by the first day of school and the attached pages should be completed and brought to class to turn in. These are due on Thursday, August 13, 2015. Also, be prepared to write about and participate in discussions about your Newbery book.


In addition, every student is asked to have a library card from their local public library. Happy Summer Reading!

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
