Before you start reading, preview the writing activities attached to the guide. Then, choose at least two books to read this summer. Your goal is to read at least one fiction and one nonfiction book. For each book, you will complete one graphic organizer. For example, when you read a fiction book, you will complete a graphic organizer that is labeled ‘fiction.’ When you read a nonfiction book, you will complete a graphic organizer that is labeled ‘nonfiction.’ When you return to school in August, bring one completed fiction graphic organizer and one completed nonfiction graphic organizer. You do not have to complete the entire packet – you will have two graphic organizers to turn in.
