Middle School Reading & IXL Summer Requirements:

1. Required novels:

Rising 6th GradersFeathers by Jacqueline Woodson

Rising 7th Graders  – A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park

Rising 8th GradersThe River Between Us by Richard Peck


2. Additional Reading

In addition to the required grade level novels, students should read at least one book of their choice. This book will be used in class for a graded assignment during the first 2 weeks of school.


3. IXL

We ask that students complete on IXL at least 1 hour of ELA skills practice per month (June, July & August) from their previous grade level (rising 6th complete 5th grade skills; rising 7th complete 6th grade skills; rising 8th complete 7th grade skills) as a review. This is on average 15 minutes per week for the summer. Students should work to 85% mastery or better. The time spent on IXL will be awarded up to 15 points towards the student’s grammar grade as completed in compliance with the time requirements.

Upon returning to school, students will be given an assessment on these skills which will be a grammar grade.

The areas of practice are linked below:
