6th Grade Blog

If you haven’t already heard…..Mrs. Barfell LOVES reading and is always trying to “encourage” her students to be readers.  The 6th grade class has a goal of 36 books for the year, and this is the place for them to share about the books they have read.  So write a few lines of summary and recommendation or read about what other students are enjoying.  Hopefully you’ll notice that many of the students are learning to LOVE reading too!!

  1. The book Wonder by R.J. Palacio is a MUST read book. It tells the story of August, a fifth-grader who was born with a deformed face. Auggie takes a brave step and enters school for the first time in his life. The reactions of his classmates cause us to think about how we treat others. We learn that it’s what is inside a person that really matters, and as we laugh and hurt with August, we are reminded that we need to be careful how we treat others. This will be a class favorite for a long time. I highly recommend that students and their parents read the story of August Pullman.

  2. I just read the book No Talking by Andrew Clements. It is about a boy named Dave and a girl named Lindsey. They are having a competition to see who can say the least words girls against boys. In the end it ends up a tie. I would recommend this book to people who like funny books. Also would recommend Andrew Clements as an author.

  3. The book “The Boy Who Dared” by Susan Bartoletti is a very excellent book. It is about a boy in Germany named Hulmuth who is disagreeing with the new Nazi president named Adolf Hitler. The German government is lying to everyone by saying they will bring peace. He and his friends make fliers and give them to everyone in their city. Later, they get caught and you will have to read the rest to find out what happens to them. This is one of the best books I have read.

  4. A wonderful book I read was called Sassy A Dazzle dinner Disaster Party. Girls this is a great book. The author is Sharon M. Draper.

Phillip is the name of the boy and he is blind from getting hit in the head with one of the parts of the boat that he was on which sunk. Timothy is the name of the black man and he works on the boat that sunk. They have made many memories together and if you want to know more you have to read the book.

It is very interesting how he survives and the friends he meets. It also shows pictures of the things he made if you would like to survive. On a scale to 1 to 10 this book would be a 9. I would recommend this book to any boy or girl who is into survival.

  19. The book Theodore Boone The Accused, written by John Grisham was a great book!!! It started off with April being kidnapped, so no one has the slightest clue where she is. There were no clues to be found. April is “supposedly dead”, but the body had decayed so much they couldn’t tell if it was April. Later they saw it wasn’t her it was a 40 year old man. So, you read it yourself and see. This is a realistic fiction book, so if you like these types of books, I would recommend it to you.
