Prevent summer reading loss! Read at least one full-length novel of at least two hundred pages and write a book review of the book in your writer’s notebooks. IF you write a book review AND make three other entries throughout the summer, show your writer’s notebook to me at the beginning of next school year to start the year off with some extra credit!
