Minimum number of novels read over the summer will be one. Record your answers to all of the 5 sets of comprehension questions for each novel that you have read so that these answers can be brought to school in the fall. There are 5 sets of comprehension questions (30 total questions) for each novel YOU READ. Feel free to read as many novels as you would like. At the very least, you will be reading 1 novel of your choosing and answering the 30 comprehension questions related to that novel.
Besides reading a novel of your choosing and answering the 30 comprehension questions, the other links and ideas are suggestions and resources for you to keep your mind active and fresh over summer (i.e., Summer Bridge Activities Book, journaling, hyperlinks, and summer writing prompts). THE SHEPPARD SOFTWARE SITE REQUIRES ADOBE FLASH PLAYER WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE SUPPORTED ON YOUR DEVICE. IF IT IS NOT SUPPORTED, YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO USE THIS FREE SITE. FEEL FREE TO USE OTHER RESOURCES.
SUMMER BRIDGE IS NOT SOMETHING FOR YOU TO STRESS ABOUT. YOU AND YOUR FAMILY NEED TO ENJOY YOUR SUMMER AFTER ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK.
WE AT ST. DAMIAN SCHOOL HOPE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ENJOY YOUR SUMMER! GOD BLESS! GO LANCERS!
