As we come to the close of another school year, summer reading becomes a very important topic of discussion at the Old Bridge Township Public Schools.
To make certain that you and your child/children are aware of topics and genres for summer reading, a list of titles is readily available for you to peruse. The librarian or your child’s teacher may have suggestions as well; please ask her or him to assist you and your child/children.
To access the summer reading list, click below on the grade level your child/children will be entering in September. You can then explore the list and print if you so choose to do so.
All special education students should consult with their resource room teacher for their individual summer reading list.
The Old Bridge Township Public Library also has a list of grade level appropriate titles available. You can access the list through this link: http://www.oldbridgelibrary.org/kids_book_lists.html.
You can also visit the Old Bridge Township Public Library if you do not have access to a computer.
No matter how you access the information on suggested titles the important thing is that you read to your children and with them. Please encourage your children to read every day! Thank you for being the best role models for our young people.
Elementary School (Intended for students entering Grades 3, 4 and 5 as of September 2017)
Dear Parent(s)/Guardians and Students:
In preparation for the upcoming school year, the following summer math assignments will provide the necessary practice for your child to be “ready” for the expectations of his/her new grade level. Each assignment was prepared by respective grade level teachers so that your child will maintain and/or reinforce the prerequisite skills essential for success in mathematics.
It has been our experience to witness upon return to school in September, that many prerequisite mathematical skills are lost due to the absence of regular practice over the summer. The loss of these skills may contribute to unnecessary frustration and possible lack of success for students as they begin their next level of mathematical study in the new school year. Retaining skills as students move up to the next grade level is crucial to their academic performance.
For this reason, a summer assignment has been created for the following grade levels: Grade 3, Grade 4 and Grade 5. Please keep in mind that the summer assignments are for the grade level the students will be attending in September 2017. If your student is entering Grade 6 in September, then the summer assignment will be listed under the “Middle School” section of the Summer Assignments.
Students with their parents should follow the link below for the student’s appropriate grade level. Students are asked to print a copy of the assignment and answer as many questions as possible and show all work. An answer key is also provided so that he/she may identify skills that may require further practice.
Upon entering the new grade level in September, your child should bring his/her completed assignment to the classroom teacher. This sample of your child’s understanding of prerequisite skills will be filed in his/her student portfolio to be used as a resource to guide instruction and ensure mastery of content. Students are strongly encouraged to complete this grade level assignment. It will not be graded but will be used to support your child’s mathematical instruction.
If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Math Supervisor, Dr. Jean Ferrara at email@example.com or call 732-290-3900, ext. 3706.
