For Students Entering Grade 6


Welcome incoming sixth graders! For this summer’s book, we will be reading When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. I believe this Newbery Medal winning novel will not only be an interesting read, but also a great jumping off point for our review of literary elements in the fall. All students are required to read the novel and complete two choices from the Reading Response Choice Menu. You will turn in your work the first week of school. Choose what interests you. Have fun and happy reading!
