-Welcome to 6th Grade Reading-

Here is your virtual check-in, where you'll find information and updates about things happening in the classroom and at our school.  This website provides an excellent opportunity to communicate and connect.  I encourage you to visit often!

I will do my best to keep my site updated, so that each visit is a good one.


Ms. Burlison

***Students have been loving our class novel, Wonder. If you haven't asked them about it yet, please do!  We teachers are so pleased with the discussion the book can bring about.  

-The AR goal is coming up quick!  If your child is aiming for a 100% of their goal, it is due October 16th.  Remember, this year the AR goal will be counted as a tested grade, like two daily grades.  We will be taking it as a precentage of the goal, so it could be two 93%, or 82%.  It is not all or nothing.  

-Many are relying on the book Wonder to achieve all of their goal.  We have stressed that there is a chance we might not finish the book in time.  Their option is to read ahead and finish the book before the class finishes.  They can come in any morning but Friday, get lunch approval from me to come in, or they can purchase the book on their own.  Many have taken advantage of this as they just can't stand not knowing what happens next! :)

-As always, students need to be reading at home several times throughout the week.  

-Book Fair Preview is this Friday! I love this time of year of new books and excited readers.

-Book Fair Purchase is September 24th.
