Summer Reading and Math Packets

2017-2018  7th and 8th grade reading packet
We encourage parents/guardians to be involved in reading with their children this summer! 
What should we think about while reading?

Who are the main characters of the book? How would you characterize these characters? What does each character want in the story? Does this change during the story? Do the characters get what they want? Why or why not?

¿Quiénes son los personajes principales del libro? ¿Cómo caracterizaría usted a estos personajes? ¿Qué quiere cada personaje en la historia? ¿Esto cambia durante la historia? ¿Los personajes consiguen lo que quieren? ¿Por qué o por qué no?

Where does the story take place? Does this change? If so, how does the change affect the characters?
¿Dónde tomo lugar la historia? ¿Cambia esto? Si es así, ¿cómo el cambio afecta a los personajes?

What is the theme of the story?
¿Cuál es el tema de la historia? 

Whose perspective is this story told from? How would the story be different if it was told from a different character’s perspective?
¿De qué perspectiva es esta historia contada? ¿Cómo la historia sería diferente si se contara desde la perspectiva de un personaje diferente? 

Did this story influence you in some way? Did it change the way you think or how you understand the way the world works?
