Each year my school requires summer reading. Last year my sixth grade students read Crispin: The Cross of Lead by Avi. I am thinking about having my students read that and possibly True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, which is also by Avi. I can’t decide. In the past my students also read Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. Do you have any suggestions for summer reading for sixth graders?
