Bellevue Middle School

Summer Reading List

Rising 6th Graders

 

Greetings Parents of Rising 6th Graders,

 

We are so excited about your 6th Grader entering the world of Middle School and making the choice to attend Bellevue Middle School.  As you prepare your child for the world of middle school, please do not allow those growing minds to become idle over the summer. 

 

Reading a variety of genres enhances:

 

Mastery of language - Reading for children has been linked to a better grasp of the fundamentals of language.

More logical thinking skills.- Another illustration of the importance of reading is their ability to grasp abstract concepts, apply logic in various scenarios, recognize cause and effect, and utilize good judgment. As students begin to relate the scenarios in books to what’s happening in his own world, he’ll become more excited about the stories read.

Acclamation to new experiences  - As your child approaches a major developmental milestone or a potentially stressful experience, sharing a relevant story is a great way to help ease the transition. For instance, if your child is nervous about starting middle school, reading a story dealing with this topic shows her that her anxiety is normal.

Enhanced concentration and discipline - Along with reading comprehension comes a stronger self-discipline, longer attention span, and better memory retention, all of which will serve your child well in school.

The knowledge that reading is fun! - Early reading for children helps them view books as an indulgence, not a chore. Kids who are exposed to reading are much more likely to choose books over video games, television, and other forms of entertainment as they grow older.

STEVE JOBS: THINKING DIFFERENTLY-- Lakin, Patricia (Biography)

The Wish Giver --- Bill Brittain (Fiction)

When a strange little man comes to the Coven Tree Church Social promising he can give people exactly what they ask for, three young believers-in-magic each make a wish that comes true in the most unexpected way.

Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry --- Mildred Taylor  (Fiction)

Why is the land so important to Cassie's family? It takes the events of one turbulent year—the year of the night riders and the burnings, the year a white girl humiliates Cassie in public simply because she is black—to show Cassie that having a place of their own is the Logan family's lifeblood. It is the land that gives the Logans their courage and pride, for no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess something no one can take away.

My Life with Chimpanzees --- Jane Goodall  (Biography) life in the jungles of Tanzania that her odyssey appears to have just begun. . . . Stories of the chimps dominate the book they threaten to steal the show in many instances; readers will love meeting these personable animals.

 

HAppy Reading! Happy Summer!
