We will not be doing all of these every day. Follow along with us and I will share throughout the year so you can see how it all fits in!

The list is long, but not all of these are essentials. She won’t do all of these every day!

6th Grade Reading List

We have used visual reading lists in our homeschool for years now! I spend lots of time each summer creating these lists for my kids and they really help throughout the school year. Today I am sharing our 6th-grade book list, for my daughter.

I used many sources to find books I thought she might enjoy and that I wanted her to try. She is my bookworm and reads a LOT on her own. She gravitates towards fantasy books so I have tried to fill her list with more historical and realistic fiction. We may add to this list if I find new books throughout the year, but this is our starting point.

 

Assigned Books

This year I have already chosen the assigned books and created printables for them. I let her choose which book she wants to start with from the assigned books, she chose Stay, which I am excited about because I know she will love it!! You can find our printables for all of these books and more here on our Read for a Reason webpage! Below you can see the 6 books I am planning on assigning this year.

The rest of the books on the list are books I think she will enjoy and most I have read. I will use the remaining books as more assigned books or suggestions throughout the year. I like to make a bigger list than we will need so I don’t run out of ideas! We do not own all of these so I have her choose and I put the book on hold at the library.

The Reading Notebook

I made a quick video to show you her reading notebook! See it here on YouTube! All printables you see are available to download here.

I forgot to show the back of her notebook, that’s where I keep the genre printable so it’s easy to refer to!

 

Downloads & How-To…

I have a few downloads you are welcome to use if you’d like. First, here is a PDF copy of the book choice page featuring the books I chose for her. If you want to create your own visual list, it is easy! I have a video tutorial here!

 

Booklist Video…

I have a Facebook Live video sharing about these visual booklists, and why we love them! You can watch that here!

6th Grade Reading List

6th Grade Book List

Last year we used visual reading lists for the first time and it was SO helpful! I chose to do this again for this upcoming homeschool year and shared our 3rd grade list last week and today I am sharing my son’s 6th grade reading list.

I used many sources to find books I thought he might enjoy and that I wanted him to try. I have not read all of these, but looked at reviews and am comfortable with giving these a try. After deciding on many book choices for him, I created a page with each cover so he can browse and choose his next book easily. We do not own all of these so I have him choose and I put the book on hold at the library!

Below you can see Amazon links to all of the books on this list {click over to the blog if you are reading in email}.

Downloads…

I have a few downloads you are welcome to use if you’d like. First, here is a copy of the book choice page featuring the books I chose for him. If you want to create your own visual list, it is easy!  Just grab the book cover images online somewhere {I used Amazon} and then copy them into a document and resize how you want!  I use PowerPoint to create my documents, I like their positioning tools the best.

Here is a blank reading record like his. I just have him write the title, author and rate the book 1-10 based on his opinion.

Here’s another reading log we have used.  It is very similar to the one we are using now.
