Additional (non-required) Summer Reading Opportunities for Middle School Students

Additional Resources

Summer Reading Additional Resources

Many parents often ask “What can I do to work with my student over the summer?” We have also included for you a list of OPTIONAL additional resources that students can use over the summer to continue their knowledge and skills in grammar, writing, and reading comprehension.

Reading Comprehension Practice: We recommend having your student complete the Daily Reading Practice (DRP) workbook for the grade level they have just completed. For example, if your student is a rising seventh grader, he or she should complete the Daily Reading Practice Grade 6 Workbook. Purchase the Daily Reading Practice workbooks at www.dgppublishing.com or by phone 706-745-1005.

Grammar Practice: We recommend having your student complete the Daily Grammar Practice (DGP) workbook for the grade level they have just completed. For example, if your student is a rising seventh grader, he or she should complete the Daily Grammar Practice Grade 6 Workbook. If students are current Whitefield students and have already completed DGP for their current grade level, you can also purchase the first edition DGP workbook for their current grade level or the Daily Bible Grammar Practice instead. Purchase the Daily Grammar Practice workbooks at www.dgppublishing.com or by phone 706-745-1005.

Writing Practice: We recommend having your student engage in a real life writing activity, such as journaling, blogging, or memoir writing on a regular basis. If students are writing weekly about the events of their summer, scripture they are reading, or about books they are reading, it can have a tremendous impact on their ability to turn thinking into writing. Even though this style of writing can seem informal, it engages a young person in the act of writing and fosters his or her interest in sharing ideas.

Math Practice: We recommend having your student sharpen their math skills over the summer by engaging in practice for math skills that will prepare them for the upcoming year. Your student can complete the Summer Math Skills Sharpener workbook for the grade level they have just completed. For example, if your student is a rising seventh grader, he or she should complete the Summer Math Skills Sharpener workbook for 6th Grade. Purchase the Summer Math Study Skills Sharpener workbook at http://www.summerskills.com/books/summer-math-skills-sharpener-1.

SAT Prep: Rising eighth graders may want to consider beginning to familiarize themselves with SAT style questions. The college board offers a daily SAT question and other practice resources at sat.collegeboard.org. The question of the day can be found at http://sat.collegeboard.org/practice/sat-question-of-the-day
