Required Summer Reading Information

Sample Book Report Form

Choose one of the following books:

  • 4th Grade:
    • Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume
    • Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan
  • 5th Grade
    • Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry
    • The Black Stallion by Walter Farley
  • 6th Grade:
    • Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick
    • Wonder by R. J. Palacio

A book report will be due the first week of school on Friday, August 12.  A computer generated test will also be taken on that day.  This is required reading—not an option.  Grades will be given on the report and the test.

The book report can be individualized by each student, but must include the following:

  • Title
  • Author
  • Setting (Time and Place)
  • Main Characters
  • Summary of the book
  • Optional: An illustration depicting something from your book

Remember that neatness, spelling, and punctuation are a big part of your grade.

Have a Great Summer!  See you in August!!
