Reading Into Summer

My students need access to the upcoming summer reading selections from the SC Junior Nominee list.

My Students

My students are excited to explore new books, to learn, to get ahead for seventh grade, and to expand their choices for what they read. Some of my students do not have the same opportunities as others being in such a diverse school.

Some have the opportunity to explore books and others do not have that opportunity.

But, all of my students love the opportunity to explore new text and to get their hands on a new set of books. Sometimes they get "stuck" in a specific genre of reading, I would like to be able to expand their reading options.

My Project

Students at our school are expected to read two of the SC Junior Nominee books each summer. Sometimes, students do not have easy access to these books outside of the classroom. Having a set in my classroom before summer starts the students will be able to start their reading.

Throughout the year the students are challenged to read as many as they can from the SC Junior Nominee list.

They are invited to special voting parties for reading six or more to vote for the states winner. This give students great ownership in their reading. They always get very excited when their choice is picked for the state winner.

For the last two years, students have had the opportunity to meet an author from this list. It gives the students great pride to meet the person who wrote something they have read. We as a school hope to give them this opportunity again.
