Summer Reading

  • Summer Reading Assignment STEP ONE

    Over the summer, read at least TWO novels of your choice, that are at an appropriate reading level for YOU. Audiobooks and graphic novels are OK too. Here are some resources to help you choose your books:

    6th Grade Book Reviews - 2019 - A slideshow containing 34 book reviews.

    6th Grade Book Reviews - 2018 - A slideshow containing 47 book reviews.

    6th Grade Favorites - Books that have been loved by 6th graders, year after year. 

    Good Reads Reading Lists - An online resource.

    Summer Reading Assignment STEP TWO

    For one of the books you read, write a 27 word summary. That’s it, just 27 words! However, it can be tricky getting to exactly 27, so you have to choose your words carefully. Try to summarize the main idea of the book while also creating interest in the novel. Put your summary on the top of a 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Under the summary you will create a color-symbol-image chart based on your book. You will:

    -Choose a color to represent your book and explain WHY you chose the color.

    -Choose an symbol to represent your book and explain WHY you chose this symbol.

    -Draw or find an image to represent your book and explain WHY you chose this image.

    You may complete this assignment on a computer or draw it by hand. Bring this to ELA class during the first week of school (due 9/6/19) to get a 100% on your first reading assignment of the year.  There are two examples below.
