Product Description
Students need to read during the summer to develop leisure-time reading habits, reinforce reading skills, and prepare for instruction in the upcoming school year. To that end, this summer reading project requires all students to read a book and complete a creative and engaging summer reading project to demonstrate their understanding of the book they read.

In this summer reading project, students will read a book and then create a two-page newspaper complete with a main event lead news story, character profile, editorial book review, setting highlight, and even a comic, obituary or advice column. For each element of the newspaper, students complete guided pre-writes. Then, they write rough drafts for each piece of the newspaper. Finally, after editing and revising their work, students create final copy articles and illustrations for their paper. The final product is a two page newspaper that’s an outstanding representation of their comprehension and a great addition to any writing portfolio.
