Reading frenzy…

Hopefully your child has already mentioned his/her Semester Independent Reading Project.  If you haven’t heard, please ask him/her all about it.  Students in 6th – 8th grade will be responsible for reading books of different genres and completing several tasks as they read.  In the packet sent home, there are a few links that may be used to help classify the books into genres and appropriate ages.  I wanted to add a few links that contained recommended readings as well.  Please send any questions that you may have.
