2006 Summer Reading
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 law and Cobb County require all middle school students read at least 25 books for the 2006-2007 school year. 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. You can find more information related to the summer reading program on the Media Center Blog.
Summer reading is designed to keep students reading through the summer so their skills do not regress. Therefore, this is designed to include many choices. All these books are available on Amazon.com. Many, but not all, are available through local book sellers. The public library will also have some of these titles in more limited supply. Our reading list has been shared with the public library and several local book sellers. Additionally, many of these titles will be available at the book fair held at Mabry May 8 - 12, 2006; Monday - Thursday from 8:15AM - 4:00PM, and on Friday from 8:15AM - 2:00PM. Parents of rising 6th graders are also welcomed to come purchase summer reading materials during these times.
These materials are presented as pdfs for download. Everyone will need to download the reading log as all summer reading must be documented correctly on the summer reading log if you plan to count it toward your 25 book reading requirement. You should also download the materials required for your grade level.
