I know that summer can be a busy a fun time of year. Our family loves to find many activities to do outdoors, such as: swimming, biking, hiking, camping, and climbing mountains. However, even in the midst of all this busyness, we always find some down time to read. We still have a habit of taking a break after lunch. Only the three year old still takes naps; the rest of us take a break with a book. My hope for you this summer is that you will find many fun and exciting activities to keep you busy, but that you will also refresh your mind and relax with a good book. Each grade level has a slightly different assignment. Please click on the link appropriate for the grade you will be entering. There are also files included to guide you in your essay or which you can download and then add your own information . Feel free to e-mail me your questions and/ or assignments at any time in the summer. But please don't be surprised if I don't get back to you immediately because we do have a lot of fun planned!
