A Note from Miss Geene

I can’t believe the sixth grade has graduated?! I feel like it was only yesterday I was seeing their bright smiling faces enter my class in August. I can’t thank each of you enough for sharing your child with me this year and for supporting our class. It has truly been a blessing to spend each day with your wonderful children. Thank you again for all your support throughout the year. Please do not hesitate to keep in touch and come visit. I hope each and every one of you have a safe and blessed summer.

 

Summer Reading for Future Sixth Graders

Dear Parents,

Congratulations to your son or daughter for successfully completing 5th grade.  I am certain that each of them will be successful next year as well.

The summer reading list is enclosed with your child’s report card. I have chosen four possible novels for the students. They are to choose two of them to read this summer. All students are required to read at least two novels this summer. Attached is a list of the novels from which they may make their selections.  In addition to the choice of books, students have a choice of activities for follow up. They are listed with the summaries of each book. The completed project will be due by the end of the first FULL week of school (Friday, August 24th). These activities will be graded and averaged into the first quarter reading grade.

This year students are again being asked to work on The Summer Bridge: 5th to 6th Grade this summer.  The books may be purchased at bookstores such as Barnes and Noble or Books-A-Million. They can also be purchased on-line.

The book is divided into three 20-day sections.  Each 20-day section covers a wide range of subject areas, including math, science, and grammar.  I am requiring each rising 6th grade student to complete a minimum of one 20-day section.  An answer key is provided in the back of the book.  To receive full credit, students must correct their own work.  The work is due on the first day back to school. Parents, there is a certificate for you to sign verifying that your child did complete the work.

I would like to point out one more feature of The Summer Bridge.  Each math section comes with important directions.  For example, if it is a lesson that is related to fractions, important information about reciprocals or common denominators may be included in the directions. Therefore, it is very important that students read the directions very carefully before beginning a lesson.

Also, there will be some sections in The Summer Bridge that may be challenging to your son or daughter.  However, I am asking each student to try his or her best.  This book is designed to provide the students with an opportunity to maintain basic skills over the summer months.  If your child struggles with a particular section, please encourage your child to do his or her best work, and I will accept this.

Feel free to email me at rgeene@stpeterscatholicschool.org, if you have questions. I will be checking my email over the summer months from time to time. Have a great summer and happy reading!

Sincerely,

Ms. Geene

 

Summer Reading for Rising Sixth Graders

 

Read TWO of these books and do ONE of the listed activities for ONE book. Work is due the first full week of school.

 

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

The story begins in Berlin 1942. When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence stretches alongside as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance. But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides he must explore his new home. While exploring, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different than his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.

 

The Clone Codes by The McKissacks

In the year 2170 an underground abolitionist movement fights for the freedom of cyborgs and clones, who are treated no better than slaves. The Cyborg Wars are over and Earth has peacefully prospered for more than one hundred years. Yet sometimes history must repeat itself until humanity learns from its mistakes. Thirteen-year-old Leanna’s entire life is thrown into chaos when The World Federation of Nations discovers her mom is part of the radical Liberty Bell Movement.

 

Confetti Girl by Diana Lopez

Apolonia “Lina” Flores is a sock enthusiast, a volleyball player, a science lover, and a girl who’s just looking for answers. Even though her house is crammed full of books, she’s having trouble figuring out some very big questions, like why her dad seems to care about books more than her, why her best friend’s divorced mom is obsessed with making cascarones (hollowed eggshells filled with colorful confetti), and, most of all, why her mom died last year. Like colors in cascarones, Lina’s life is a rainbow of people, interests, and unexpected changes.

 

Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell

In the Pacific there is an island that looks like a big fish sunning itself in the sea. Around it, blue dolphins swim, otters play, and sea elephants and sea birds abound. Once, Indians also lived on the island. And when they left and sailed to the east, one young girl was left behind. This is the story of Karana, the Indian girl who lived alone for years on the Island of the Blue Dolphins. Year after year, she watched one season pass into another and waited for a ship to take her away. But while she waited, she kept herself alive by building shelter, making weapons, finding food, and fighting her enemies, the wild dogs. It is not only an unusual adventure of survival, but also a tale of natural beauty and personal discovery.

Projects (Chose ONE for ONE book you read)

  • Book Timeline: Use complete sentences and pictures to illustrate 10 important events from the novel. Each event should include a paragraph, with correct spelling and grammar, describing what happened and how it affected the characters in the story. Dates should be written, if known. Remember to include the title and author on the top of your timeline.

 

 

  • Book as a Movie Project: Write a 3-5 page script as if you were producing the movie for the book. Include all characters and who you would use to play each character. Use complete sentences and at least 15 important events from the book. Accompanying your script, you must have an illustrated (must be drawn and not a copy of the cover of the book) movie poster that promotes your movie.

 

 

  • Letter Exchange Project: Write a series letters between you and a character from the story, or between two characters of the story. You will need to write six letters altogether: three from you to the character in your book and three from the character back to you. Include a cover page with the title, author and an illustration. Each letter should be about a page long. In your letters, ask the character questions that have to do with the character’s life and the story. Have the character answer the questions in his or her letters back to you. Write about things that you find interesting, things that you and the character have in common, or events from the novel.
  • Graphic Novel Project: Write a graphic novel (comic strip style) of the book by using 10 important events. The front cover should include the title of the book, name of the author (your name), and a large picture of an important scene. The pages should tell the story in frames with pictures (which are drawn and colored), captions and thought and speech bubbles. Use correct spelling and grammar.

A Note from Miss Geene

During this short week, we have a walking field trip to the Richland library on Tuesday and we will have our Lenten retreat on Wednesday. On Wednesday, the students will be involved in lessons on Holy Week, mediations, and Stations of the Cross as a whole school. If any parents would like to attend Stations of the Cross in the Church with their student, we will be attending at noon.

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Snack Shack has been going well and the students are having a great time selling the snacks and seeing the results of their hard work on the financial report! This week we will not have Snack Shack. Parents we are running low on snacks so please help us purchase more. However, do not spend more than $10-$15 on snacks. Thank you for supporting the sixth grade in their business endeavor.

Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
