Summer Homework

GRADE 6
  • Summer Reading: 
The first unit of study in sixth grade ELA will be primarily centered on Mythology and “the hero’s journey” theme in literature.  We want our incoming students to achieve at their highest potential. With that in mind we have a created summer reading list that will offer every child valuable background knowledge in the subject matter. Your child should read THREE of the books below and complete THREE literary responses which will be handed in the first week of school to their ELA teacher.  Completing these assignments will count towards the DOE’s 25 book campaign. Your encouragement is the key factor to their success.  FORMAT: You will write three book reports using the following essay format as your guide. Responses should be typed or neatly handwritten with a proper heading (Name, Date, Grade, and Teacher). 

You do not need to choose the books on the list that is a suggested list of books. You must read books that will answer the questions. 

All students should be typing their essays directly into google classroom you do not need a heading. 


RESOURCES: Students may also substitute another book or texts it does not have to be on the list. It just needs to answer the questions.
