00:0-1 Yeah , you could read the movie . No ,
00:01 you're not going to read the movie . That was
00:04 terrible . Mhm . Hi , it's Katie has veto
00:11 from school habits dot com , and this video is
00:13 full of summer reading tips . Now it's good advice
00:17 for when you're reading a book at any point .
00:19 Also , if you're a parent , then you can
00:21 use these tips to help your child to the summer
00:24 reading . Or if you are a student yourself ,
00:26 then then they are for you know what I'm saying
00:29 . You I either mean you as a student or
00:32 if you're a parent , then you like helping your
00:34 child . So I have five tips in this video
00:37 . But before we begin , I love if you
00:40 give this video a thumbs up or subscribe if you
00:42 haven't done so already and then make sure to follow
00:45 me over on instagram for some behind the scenes action
00:49 and daily inspo over there as well . So here
00:52 we go . So tip number one is chapter summaries
00:54 now , Yes , this is going to require a
00:56 little bit of work , but the whole point is
00:59 , if you're gonna spend this time doing your summer
01:00 reading , you want to make sure that come September
01:03 , you remember what the heck you read . Okay
01:06 , so you might not love doing chapter summaries as
01:09 you're doing it . But come September , when you
01:11 have to , like , write a paper on the
01:13 book or response to the book or whatever it is
01:16 like you can remember what it is you read by
01:19 referring back to your chapter summary . So the way
01:21 you do this is that after each chapter , you
01:24 stop . Even if you want to keep going like
01:26 it's cliffhanger , stop and write a few bullet points
01:30 or a few sentences , you can either do it
01:31 right in the book . If you own the book
01:34 , you can do it in a sticky note .
01:35 Or you can do in a separate piece of paper
01:37 for my clients that I work with here in the
01:39 office , which is where then I have them use
01:42 a template that I've created . Um , it's a
01:44 written document , and they just right , right on
01:46 it so that come September , you can go .
01:48 What happened in Chapter four was this or Chapter nine
01:52 . This is what happened , and you don't have
01:53 to rely on your memory . Tip number two is
01:55 to give each chapter a name . Now , a
01:57 lot of books like it'll just say Chapter one ,
02:00 Chapter two and there's no actual title to the chapter
02:03 . When you're done reading each chapter when you're doing
02:05 the chapter summaries , give each chapter a title .
02:09 Um , the title shouldn't be fun . It shouldn't
02:11 be catchy . It shouldn't be creative , but just
02:15 a simple title , which sums up the main idea
02:18 of the chapter . The author did do a title
02:21 and write your own anyway , because chances are the
02:24 author did like a catchy title , and you want
02:26 one that just sums up the main idea . So
02:28 Billy goes to summer . Uh , My God ,
02:32 Billy goes to summer camp or so and so finally
02:37 meets his mom or whatever it is that's happening in
02:40 the chapter , make it the chapter title . The
02:42 third thing and this is so important , is to
02:45 make a summer schedule . Summer doesn't last forever .
02:47 We all think it does . We think it's like
02:49 three months long , at least here in the US
02:52 It's like June , July August , but it's not
02:55 three months long , and it goes by really fast
02:58 , and a lot of times I have students coming
03:00 to me in August being like I have three books
03:01 to read for summer reading . I'm like , Good
03:03 war , child . What are we gonna do ?
03:05 Create a reading schedule . Now , in the description
03:09 box of this video , I have a link where
03:12 you can download a free reading schedule that I've created
03:16 . It's a template for you to print out as
03:18 many times as you want . That's how a template
03:20 works and you can fill it out for each month
03:23 of the summer . But the way that you do
03:25 this is you take the total amount of pages that
03:28 you have in the book . So let's say there
03:29 is 400 pages and you take how many days that
03:33 you have to read the book . So this means
03:35 you're gonna give yourself a deadline , not by the
03:38 end of the summer . Give yourself a deadline of
03:40 like July 1st so you would calculate how many days
03:44 you have between now and your deadline . Let's say
03:47 you have 20 days and 400 pages , then you
03:51 divide 400 by 20 . That's how many pages you
03:54 would have to read per day . Now , on
03:56 your reading schedule , you would write down the actual
03:59 page numbers that you would read each day , not
04:02 like 20 pages . You would write pages one through
04:05 20 then 21 through 40 then 41 through 60 right
04:10 that on each day . And if life happens and
04:13 you have to go to the beach one , you
04:14 have to go to the beach . If you go
04:15 to the beach one day and you don't read big
04:18 deal . But then the next day you know which
04:21 pages you have to catch up on . So that's
04:23 why you would write down the specific page numbers on
04:26 each day of the calendar . But again , if
04:29 you want to template in the description box below ,
04:31 just click on the link and it will take you
04:33 to a free downloadable templates . Number four . Prime
04:37 Yourself Beforehand Prime means , like get yourself prepared ,
04:42 learn a little bit of information about the book that
04:44 you're reading about the author about the time period .
04:48 Do a Google search , um , about the book
04:51 like Don't go and you know , spoiler alert .
04:53 Kill the book before you read it . But it
04:56 can be really hard sometimes to dive into a book
04:59 , and you have no idea the context . You
05:00 don't know the purpose . You don't know anything about
05:03 it . Yeah , you read the blurb on the
05:04 back . But that's not always enough to , like
05:07 , hook us in right ? So if you just
05:09 go to Google and you Google the book , let's
05:12 say you're reading To Kill a Mockingbird and as you
05:14 do to kill a Mockingbird themes , then you're gonna
05:16 have a whole bunch of results where it tells you
05:19 what the themes of the book are , so that
05:21 when you're reading it , things will click as you're
05:23 reading it . But , like , if you're reading
05:24 a book , just Google that and you could follow
05:27 it with summary outline preview , you could Google the
05:32 author learn a bit of information about the author like
05:35 why they're writing the time period . Just knowing something
05:39 before you read about the book makes reading it that
05:43 much easier . That's actually like a neurological thing .
05:47 It's a learning theory that when you prime yourself when
05:49 you get ready to learn information , you're more prepared
05:53 to learn the information that makes sense . I hope
05:56 so . Okay , and then tip number five .
05:59 It's not always possible , but I would really try
06:02 if you can to read the book with someone else
06:04 now , not necessarily with someone unless that , like
06:08 , works for you . But sometimes , like in
06:10 high school , you can pick which there'll be a
06:12 mandatory book to read , and then you can pick
06:14 your own book . And if you have a friend
06:16 where you can kind of agreed to read the same
06:18 book , but then you can kinda like , hold
06:21 each other accountable . Maybe you have the same reading
06:23 schedule . Maybe you talk about the book . Maybe
06:27 you use your reading partner like you're both reading it
06:31 independently , but that at some point , if you're
06:33 confused , you talk to your friend about the book
06:36 , ask for clarification . It could be a friend
06:39 . It could be apparent . Um , it could
06:40 be a sibling , but just having somebody else to
06:45 like bounce things off of when you're reading can make
06:48 a huge difference . Also , if you're competitive like
06:51 I am , um , I would if I read
06:53 a book with a friend , I'd be the one
06:55 to like want to finish it first and get more
06:57 out of it . But that's just me . Anyway
07:00 . Maybe that's motivating to you , too . So
07:02 that was five tips The sixth tip , which is
07:04 a bonus tip , I guess . Um , yeah
07:07 , you could read the movie . No , you're
07:09 not going to read the movie . That was terrible
07:11 . You could watch the movie , But do not
07:14 watch the movie until after you read the book because
07:17 , like , who does that ? If you do
07:20 do that , don't answer that question . We can't
07:23 be friends . Obviously , there's not a movie for
07:26 every single book . But there might be something on
07:28 YouTube about the book if there's not like a full
07:30 blown movie . But sometimes just knowing you're going to
07:32 watch the movie at the end is motivation enough to
07:35 get through the book like it was Harry Potter or
07:37 something , right ? So those are my six plus
07:40 five plus one tips for how to get through summer
07:44 reading in a way that it gets done . It
07:48 gets done by the right time . It gets done
07:51 so that you remember what you're reading . That would
07:53 be the point of doing chapter summaries and making your
07:55 own titles so that your understanding what you read and
08:00 that would be Strategy Number five , which is reading
08:03 with a friend because anytime you talk about the book
08:06 you understand it better . Anytime we talk about anything
08:08 , we understand it better . And hopefully they work
08:11 . But you know what ? They will definitely not
08:13 work if you don't try them . So give it
08:14 a shot . And if they do work , And
08:16 if you do get a shot or if you have
08:17 summer reading recommendations , leave those in the comments below
08:21 two . Because I'm always on the lookout for new
08:23 books . And thanks for watching . Don't forget to
08:26 subscribe . And I'll see you in my next video
08:29 . Yeah .


I hope these summer reading tips help either you or your child get through their books this summer!

1. 8.SP.1 : Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association..

2. 8.SP.2 : Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line..

3. 8.SP.3 : Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate measurement data, interpreting the slope and intercept. For example, in a linear model for a biology experiment, interpret a slope of 1.5 cm/hr as meaning that an additional hour of sunlight each day is associated with an additional 1.5 cm in mature plant height..
