Dear 6th Grade Parents and Students,

I hope you all have had a little time to relax and are enjoying your summer so far. I want the children to read two books this summer as a continuation of our classroom reading. There are two different lists and I want the students to pick one from each list. If they have read every book on both lists, please call or text me at (516) 872-1362 or e-mail me at hartc@waldorfgarden.org, and I will give you more choices. When the children finished reading a book, they should write up a short review using the Summer Reading Review form. You can download the form and fill it in or copy it by hand. Please use this form. Here are the lists. Please pick one book from each list.

List #1 (Pick one)

  1. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
  2. The Princess and Curdie by George MacDonald
  3. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juste
  4. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle

List #2 (Pick one)

  1. Sounder by William Armstrong
  2. Number the Stars by Lois Lowery
  3. Thunder Rolling in the Mountains by Scott O'Dell
  4. SeeSaw Girl by Linda Sue Park


Here is a list of supplies to have on the first day of school:

  1. A 2"-3" 3-ring binder (design and color of your choice)
  2. 3 packets of dividers (15 total)
  3. pencil case (one with 3 holes that can be put in your binder is best)
  4. 1 box of sharpened Ticonderoga #2 pencils
  5. a pencil sharpener with big and little holes
  6. a large eraser
  7. your school fountain pen (new students you will get one from me)
  8. 5-6 clear plastic pockets with 3 holes for the binder
  9. a dictionary with 3 holes for the binder
  10. a thesaurus with 3 holes for the binder
  11. several packs of 3 hole punched lined paper
  12. several packs of 3 hole punched plain paper

If everyone has all of these things, we will be in good shape on September 3rd! Parents, please remember to put about $250.00 dollars on your child's bookstore account, and the same amount on their lunch card. Thank you for helping your child be ready for an exciting school year. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with me.

Thank you!
