Summer Reading 2017


(All incoming 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Grade students have already joined the Summer Reading Google Classroom, received instruction, and completed a practice activity!)


If you are interested in participating in the IMS Summer Reading Program and you
have not joined (due to an absence or being new to our school) your "SUMMER READING GRADE" Google Classroom....
Please email me and I will send you the code to join the classroom if you want
to do this online. (Remember to tell me what grade you are going to be at the
beginning of the next school year!)

*There are two different options presented in the Summer Reading Program Information Resource: Text-to-Text and Text-to Self:
You may choose to do either one or both!

*You may also just print the chart/charts of your choice and give it to me at the beginning of the school year!
However, I cannot communicate or comment back to you if you do not do this in the classroom.
