6th grade books read online

Holocaust is a heavy subject for fifth graders and my girls explored it in the most gentle of ways. Of the almost 500 Jews deported to Theresienstadt, all but 51 survived due in large part to the Danish government’s intercession on their behalf. There are so many wonderful Grace Lin chapter books for this age, but if you only read one, this is my pick. Where the Mountain Meets the Moon blends Chinese folk tales and mythology into a story of friendship, adventure and hope when a young girl, MinLi, must leave her poor and desolate rural village to improve her family’s fortune.
Both my girls said that this was the only read aloud they can recall and it is also one of my favorite books as kid though I only had fuzzy pleasant memory of the book and couldn’t recall the exact plot. This ingenious fantasy centers around Milo, a bored ten-year-old who comes home to find a large toy tollbooth sitting in his room.
My kids have a lot of special needs classmates and PickyKidPix in particular was drawn to stories about walking in those shoes. Richard Peck is one of my favorite authors and I chose this one because it really stuck with me.

I’m a big fan of Sharon Creech, especially Walk Two Moons and Love that Dog which I read as read alouds in earlier grades!
One of my favorite reads for 5th grade was The One and Only Ivan–I absolutely LOVE that book. That’s so great that you are doing school visits Nancy and clearly the kids are getting a lot out of them! Multicultural Children’s Book Day Jan 27thMulticultural Children's Book Day is January 27th!
Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary – While the second graders seemed to like this book for the most part, some of the boys got bored with it.
Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren – Both the boys and the girls really liked this book!
No Talking by Andrew Clements – This year’s fourth grade class definitely had a boys versus girls spirit, so they loved this book.
The Boys Start the War and The Girls Get Even by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor – The copy in our library is a 2-in-1 book, and we read both. Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson – The sixth graders loved this book! April 27, 2015 Pin7K Share413 +1 Tweet27 StumbleThis 5th grade summer reading list was fun to put together. Magic Marks the Spot is the first book in the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series. The Toothpaste Millionaire. The practical side of math is highlighted when sixth-graders Rufus and Kate decide to invent a superior toothpaste, sell it and make their fortunes. Summerhouse Time is a free verse novel, which if you’ve been following my book lists, you might have noticed verse novels are my favorite type of book these days.
Under the Egg is part mystery, part treasure hunt, part friendship story and a suspenseful, engaging read. Surviving the Applewhites. Jake has gotten kicked out of his last school and now has come to live with the eccentric, artistic, homeschooling Applewhite family. My daughter is heading into 5th grade in the fall, and these look like some great suggestions! We just finished the Applewhites as a read aloud (wonderful book) and Out of Dust was a very sad but memorable read. All downloaded practice materials are copyrighted and subject to fair use rules (read more here). It’s the first step in a chain reaction that bring a community of diversity nationalities together.
Grasshopper and Sensei highly recommends this chapter book that shows the power of staying true to yourself in a feel great (not just good!) story where the underdog is actually the coolest kid at school. I just remembered that it had an Alice in Wonderland fantasy feel to it but was much more entertaining.


Joining forces with a watchdog named Tock, Milo drives through the tollbooth’s gates and begins a memorable journey. This is the sequel to A Long Way from Chicago which also shows up on many 5th grade reading lists, but Grandma Dowdel is the star of this chapter book and someone you’d want as your own, indomitable grandmother. I also recently read and liked The Boy on the Porch (though it felt more adult oriented) and The Great Unexpected. It works well for a read aloud for younger kids too, but its publication happened to coincide with my daughter’s year in 5th.
My son and I are reading the final Rick Riordan book and I don’t know who is more excited: me or him!
I love it when authors sneak in rich language such that my child has to puzzle out the word! Piggle-Wiggle by Betty MacDonald – I remember my teacher reading this book when I was in elementary school. Frank Baum – Almost half of the fourth grade class this year was ESL (English As A Second Langauge). There are several ESL kids in sixth grade, but even for the native English speakers, the text was over their heads at times. First published 40 years ago, Jean Merrill’s book (she also wrote The Pushcart War) is still a highly entertaining celebration of the imaginative spirit. Every book in the series has tons of adventure, twist and turns, loads of intelligent humor and a satisfying ending.
My daughter and I have read a bunch but there are many new-to-us titles on here too that I can’t wait to explore. She has already read Under the Egg, so we are thinking of doing Chasing Vermeer and From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs.
Each product contains a description, use recommendations, and a downloadable PDF practice packet. We met Sharon Draper that year too who was here on behalf of Understanding Our Differences. When she joins an academic competition school team, she’s the ringer that can help bring her team victory, but can they get past her special need and see her for who is really is? Mary Alice spends the year with her in this sleepy little town but there is a lot going on. She loved it so much that she had her teacher do it as a read aloud for their Montessori class (combined 4th & 5th grade)! I thought The Great Unexpected was one of Sharon Creech’s best works and I was shocked that it didn’t wrack up a pile of awards! Some of the chapters were a little long and I’d split them into two for the sake of attention span. They learned leaps and bounds since the first day of school, but this book was tough for them to understand. Sometimes after reading a passage, I’d stop to make sure they understood what was happening in the story. Unfortunately pirates don’t take young ladies into their ranks and she is sent off to finishing school. Instead of being chaperoned by other families on the journey, she unexpectedly finds herself alone with the crew and becomes entangled in a nail-biting and dangerous adventure.
Her brothers can control natural elements,  her mother can do everything perfectly and Mibs is anxious to find out what her special quality is. After reading this book, don’t be surprised to see your kid start up a new entrepreneurial endeavor using his or her math skills! Her hunt takes her all over New York City, into the past, and introduces her to a diverse group of new friends. The feisty princesses also make an appearance and by the end of the book it is hard not to laugh out loud at the lovable foolishness of the princes’ exploits. He is starting a new school and gets an artistic new babysitter, who connects with him on a creative level.
We weren’t allowed to read two of the stories at school so I found it at the public library and checked it out to read them. The realistic ending makes the reader a champion for special needs kids and that is what makes this book so powerful.


The backdrop is the Great Depression but the adventures that seem to find Grandma Dowdel and Mary Alice are laugh-out-loud funny. It’s a perfect story to read aloud, taking the entire class on a journey along with thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle that is both a geographic and an emotional one. They were inspired by the fact that my Corgi, Wilbur, inspired the book, but they also were so enthusiastic about learning about art. It’s quite long, and I don’t think we’ll be able to finish this book before the school year is over. Ada, born with a club foot, has never left the apartment that she shares with her younger brother and cruel mother.
Right before her 13th birthday party, her father has an accident and Mibs is convinced that her power will heal him.
Dini loves Bollywood movies but when her mother announces they are going to live in India, she is disappointed they will be living in a small village instead of Bombay. Sophie looks forward to swapping secrets with her favorite cousin, trips to the donut shop and hanging out at the beach.
When the family has to pull together to get the show up after they are blackballed by a local stage mom, the results are hilariously successful. At his new school he finds sympathetic teachers who help him navigate his learning delays. He and his parents are still trying to understand each other. In free verse, she describes the difficulties of poverty, having a distant father, and the tragic accident of her mother’s death which also damaged her own hands so she is no longer able to play the piano. And English class doesn’t make life any better, as she has to write a nonfiction book on anything—anything—by the end of the term.
My oldest did a book club using Uglies but she didn’t seem to warm to the series but I hear it is a popular one. Several of the students really picked up on the format of the chapters where the mom calls another mom who tells her to call Mrs. It’s a classic and good for students to know, but I may reevaluate it as a read aloud book for next year.
10 year old Flora, a self-proclaimed cynic and comic book reader becomes friends with this new superhero, and even opens up her cynical heart. When her mother sends her brother out of London to the countryside at the start of WWII, Ada runs away with him. I really enjoy how the story reinforces the necessity of cooperation when putting on a play. In other words, life is challenging for Albie, but he is learning about life and how he can succeed in the world, despite his difficulties.
How can anyone survive this awkward, challenging, and at times just plain miserable period of life? We have the second book in our library, but the third and fourth books must have had limited printings.
This book has loads of humor, quirky characters, a dynamic heroine, and all the qualities of a fantastic summer read.
The novel uses comic strip style illustrations to tell parts of the story and is wonderfully funny as well as touching. In the country they begin to make a new life with Susan, a woman who reluctantly takes them in. But Lily thinks the answer is just that: to write about middle school nightmares, and deal with cliques, crushes, bullies, friend fights, and more. This is one of the best books I have read in recent months, with interesting historical details and a compelling narrative voice. She’s currently almost done with The Giver series and it’s so hard to find books that she likes!
