Enrichment Assignments for Incoming 6th ​Grade, Rising 7th and Rising 8th Grade Students

Summer Reading

We would like to welcome your family to Irwin Altman Middle School 172 for the 2021-2022 school year! As we transition back fully to in person learning, we would like to provide a list of elective summer enrichment activities for your child to engage in during the months of July and August.

In ELA and social studies, a choice board of activities has been provided to promote various reading and writing skills, as well as allow the ELA and social studies teachers an opportunity to get to know your child. Please see the choice board below and have your child click on the school website to access each activity and download their one activity to share with their class in September.

In math, a short suggestion of various types of formal grade-level math problems have been provided for students to practice fundamental mathematical skills / topics and explore real-world connections to the practical use of mathematics. Students can practice 2-3 problems a week to keep their numeracy and problem-solving skills sharp for September. Your child can find the activities on the school website.

In science, students have been provided links to various resources with hands-on science activities. Students can choose one activity per week to keep their science skills sharp. Students can download a copy of the science activity PowerPoint template to record each step. Save the template with the name of the activity. You can share your slides with your class in September. Your child can find the activities on the school website.

Finally, we are excited to share that there is also social emotional learning (SEL) enrichment activities to support your child with being better equipped to manage daily challenges, build positive relationships, and make informed decisions. 

Thank you and we look forward to connecting with our entire school community this September!


Your Irwin Altman Middle School Teachers
