Nathaniel already finished his one 'choice' book from his summer reading list and w/ my help he wrote me a 4 paragraph summary of that book. For the one he has to read before the 6th grade year starts (Maniac Magee) I am having him blog about the book. So far we have only put up two blog posts but he is liking it. He got to design the blog and I put up an assignment, he checks it and then does what I have asked him to do. This seems to really be holding his interest. I hope it keeps up.
