Summer Reading List

IMPORTANT UPDATE: (posted on June 7th)

Dear Mabry Parents and Students,

The required summer reading for Mabry students is:

You will only need to complete written work for the above required readings.

You are also to read both a nonfiction book and a fiction book from the list for your grade level. If you can not find any of the books on the reading list, you may substitute a nonfiction book and a fiction book of your choice. Please be sure that you and your parents feel your reading choice is appropriate for you. Keep track of your reading so we can count it toward your 25 book reading requirement.

We are sorry for the confusion and inconvenience you have had in trying to locate the books on the summer reading list. Next year we will be certain that all of the books on the reading list are more easily accessable to you. I appreciate your understanding.

Sincerely,
Dr. Tyson

Improving reading and writing are important goals at Mabry. Research has shown that the amount and quality of student reading and writing is a major factor in student achievement. Georgia and Cobb County require all middle school students read at least 25 books for 2005-2006. The 3 books you read this summer will count as part of this requirement. All written work for the required summer reading assignments will be collected during the first week of school in August. Writing pieces should be neat, legible (you may write in cursive or use word processing), and stapled together. Be sure to put your name on your work.

A copy of this information was sent home at the end of the school year. The required reading for each grade level is linked to Amazon.com for your convenience. However, this is just one of the assigned readings. Don't forget to download the PDFs for the other readings and assignments.


Rising 6th Grade


"The Cay" (THEODORE TAYLOR)

6Th Summer Reading 1-1 6th Summer Reading 2

These are both PDFs, so you will need Adobe Acrobat, which is free. Most computers already have this software.


Rising 7th Grade


"The Tiger Rising" (KATE DICAMILLO)

7Th Summer Reading 1 7th Summer Reading 2

These are both PDFs, so you will need Adobe Acrobat, which is free. Most computers already have this software.


Rising 8th Grade


"The Pearl" (John Steinbeck)

8th Summer Reading 1 8th Summer Reading 2

These are both PDFs, so you will need Adobe Acrobat, which is free. Most computers already have this software.

Also, let me take a moment to recommend the Media Center Blog to you. Bookmark it, or, better yet, subscribe to it's RSS feed! This same information is located on the Media Center blog as Word documents, not PDFs. So, if you are having difficulties downloading the pdfs, you can use this link to download Word documents.
