Summer Reading

Summer Reading 2021

Fairhaven Public Schools works hard to build a culture of readers. In the summer of 2021 we ask all students to KEEP READING.

Read when you can as much as you can. Students are encouraged to participate in the Fairhaven Summer Reading Program by reading at least ONE book during the summer.


EHMS Summer Reading Program

Students are expected to pick a book that they have never read before for this year’s summer reading. They can access the book either online, from family, or once the libraries and local stores reopen. Click this link to access popular American Literature novels: https://americanliterature.com/books.
 

Once they have selected a text, students are to complete the choice board (see below). They need to complete any 3 of the below assignments. All assignments are due upon the first day of school and will be given to the homeroom teacher. 

It is very important to review books that will be read independently. We need to be mindful of the content as well as how challenging the language in the text could be for readers (ie., text complexity and grade level appropriate). The following link offers background on great texts to consider and hasreviews on maturity level and such. https://www.commonsensemedia.org/book-lists

FHS Summer Reading Program

 

As readers, students will select a book of their choice from one of several lists:

Mrs. Whinnem’s Selections | Student Recommendations | Teacher Picks |  Most Borrowed from Library

Every student in grades 9-12 is encouraged to participate in the Fairhaven High School Summer Reading Program by reading at least ONE book during the summer. When we return to school, students will have a choice of opportunities to show that they did in fact read and share their experience with the book they selected. All students should consider the reading level and subject matter before selecting a book and discuss their choices with their parent/guardian.


Some books on the recommended list contain mature content. Parents should consider their child’s reading tastes and maturity. Parents/Guardians may wish to read their child’s book choice.
