Creek Reads! TCMS Summer Reading
All Tates Creek Middle School students are encouraged to read over the summer. Our students should read at least two books over the summer and fill out an IB MYP Learner Profile One-Pager for each book. The IB learner profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. We believe these qualities can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national, and global communities. We invite students to explore these attributes through their summer reading.
Upon our return to school, students who have completed their summer reading one-pagers will receive House Points and be invited to our summer reading party and book discussion group. This summer, our recommended summer reading list is the Kentucky Bluegrass Award Master List for 2020-21. However, these titles are not required, and you may read any two books of your choice. Below you will find the suggested reading list, one pager, and copies of the Learner Profile.
TCMS Gifted and Talented Summer Reading
All grades: This document will inform you where you may find the required titles as eBooks and Audiobooks.
6th grade gifted and talented students will 1. read ONE book from the suggested reading list above and fill out ONE one pager and 2. complete the assignment below.
7th and 8th grade gifted and talented students may choose to participate in the school-wide IB MYP summer reading assignment, but it is not required as they have their own mandatory assignment.
Remember: Kids are maturing at different rates. Not every book is appropriate for every child at every age. When choosing a book, use wisdom -- do not read a book that is inappropriate for you or your family. When choosing and reading a book, talk to your parents about what you are reading. Read together with your parent.-- Preddy, Leslie. Social Readers: Promoting Reading in the 21st Century. Libraries Unlimited, 2010.
