Hello there you!
It’s summer, and yet there are still some school work to be done…ugh. But on the flip side, summer is meant to have fun, right? There is a way to make any summer project fun, and I am going to let you in on the little secret.
Most schools have a summer reading program where you have to read a book or two and do some form of write up on it. If you have a specific book that has to be read but you don’t understand it, most schools actually encourage you to look up what is going on off the internet for your book. Read a chapter, and then confirm what you read. Before you know it the book will be done, and you will know what was read! YAY! If you get to pick the book(s) you read, here is a list of some of my personal favorites…
- Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender (series)
- The Tail Of Emily Windsnap by Liz Kessler (series)
- Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (series)
- True Confessions Of Charlotte Doyle by Avi
If you are a movie lover or a TV fanatic, here are some series that can be compared to the film versions…
- Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling (series)
- Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard (series)
- Beautiful Creatures by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia (series)
- Twilight by Stephanie Meyer (series)
- Divergent by Veronica Roth (series)
If you don’t have a summer reading program, I highly encourage reading anyway. Enjoying a good book is relaxing and helpful for your brain. Pick a book you like, and if you don’t like it, swap it out. Another trip to a local library or bookstore is always fun!
Attention Advanced Placement students! Those summer projects can seem long and boring on a summer day, but it is totally worth it! My best advice for you is to make sure you know what needs to be done before you start, and then get started as soon as possible! If you have any questions, don’t wait for the first day of school! Find your teacher’s email and ask them any questions so you know what needs to be done.
If there is any kind of project for the summer that I did not post here, I highly recommend that you just start early and work hard on it. Sloppy handwriting and all that rushed work only makes your impression on your new teacher not so good. Spend some time here and there in an undistracted area and get started! Before you know it, you will be all done! 😀
