Entering Grade 6 - Summer Reading Expectations

SUMMER READING REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS ENTERING GRADE 6

Image result for summer reading

It is the expectation that all sixth graders will read one book per month independently throughout the year. To prepare, all incoming sixth-grade students are expected to read TWO books over the summer.  Ideally, book one should be read in July, and book two should be read in August. (Any additional reading is encouraged but not required). Students are encouraged to complete the optional reading response log after reading every book for additional practice with reading comprehension and written expression.

*Please note that while it is not possible for your child’s teacher to have read a majority of the books on the lists we’ve provided, the selections have been vetted by well-respected panels of library media specialists and preteen/adolescent educators.

STEPS FOR SUMMER READING SUCCESS
JULY

Read Book One Survival Choice Book.

  • Select a book from the titles listed on this webpage. Students may complete the optional reading response form after reading for additional practice with reading comprehension and written expression. The reading response is not required. The expectation is that students will be prepared to discuss and share what they read when school resumes.
AUGUST Read Book Two Survival or Choice Book.
  • Select a different book from the titles listed on this webpage OR an appropriate (reading level and/or content) book of your choice. Students may complete the optional reading response form after reading for additional practice with reading comprehension and written expression. The reading response is not required. The expectation is that students will be prepared to discuss and share what they read when school resumes.

 

  • We welcome students to read multiple titles from the list but additional reading response forms are not required.​
  • We strongly advise parents/guardians to preview the content and summaries of the book options before their child chooses one to read. This will help families work together to choose a book that best fits the student’s interests, reading level, and maturity level.
  • The book titles listed below are available in print, eBook or audiobook, and on occasion, book on CD, and portable media player (Playaway) at the public library.  Please contact the East Greenwich Free Library for assistance.
