“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” - Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
Welcome to world of 6th Grade Language Arts! I hope you will find unique and fascinating adventures in every book you read. Well, most of them any way. In the above picture are just a few of the books I read (or revisited) over this past summer. Not every book I picked up, did I fall in love with or feel a need to share it's immortal wisdom. Not every book will you adore. But that is why we read. We read to understand the world around us. We read to learn. We read to laugh, to cry, to be frightened, and mystfied. The more we read, the more we learn about ourselves and others. So don't give up on finding a fascinating book you love... it might take a few meh's, to find the right one.
In the following pages on this website, you will find lists of vocabulary, helpful videos, and tips. You will also find my own reading blog. This is where I practice the art of writing and share with you reviews of the books I have read.
Student submissions to the book review blog are welcomed to all!
