    The Gateway Reads Program 2018-19:

    Gateway Middle School has created a fantastic new list of 50 outstanding books written over the last year.


    Transition to 6th Grade Book Recommendations:

    This list, divided into the categories of Literature and Nonfiction/Informational Text, comprises titles related to the themes and content of the each language arts unit. For their independent reading, students can select from this wide array of titles, which have been chosen based on complexity and interest. 

    Transition to 6th grade books by unit

    Also, in 6th grade, students will be learning about ancient civilizations as a social studies topic. Any book that covers Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, China, Aztec, Inca, Maya would help students build background knowledge for next year!
