In an effort to prevent that Summer Slide or to increase your reading level for when you take those MAP tests in August, keep reading during the summer months! Below you will find a link to some great choices for middle school students:
Kentucky Bluegrass Award Nominees; these will be available in both ebook and physical copies from the library as well!
If you prefer a more "classic" type of literature, then check out the Newbery Award winners. The Newbery Award is presented each year to the books that are considered to be the greatest contribution to children's literature. You can also go to past years' winners at this link and they are definitely worth checking out:
Many students submitted a pledge to read a certain number of books during the summer months through the following website. As part of the Kentucky Reads program, students may use the following link to find books on topics they're interested in. If they do not know their lexile level, all they have to do is enter their grade and answer one question. Then they will be given a lexile level on the right-hand side of the screen. They can use that level as a jumping off point to choose their interests and have the site customize a list of books for them.
And finally, here is a website that will also help you find books that you might enjoy based on what you last read. You do have to set up an account, but it's completely free and will help you track your reading interests.
HAPPY (SUMMER) READING!!!
