Hello,
I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions of Chapter Books I could have my 6th graders read that you maybe particularly use to teach a specific strategy or skill. Also, I am have just begun building my class library and was wondering if you could recommend any books from any genre that would be age appropriate for my students and books 6th graders may enjoy. Thanks!

I have used A Wrinkle in Time - the students really love it and it is great for foreshadowing and symbolism.

you can use any Wilson Rawls books for figurative language. I love to use Summer of the Monkeys for this.

I do "Esperanza Rising" by Pam Munoz Ryan---great book for figurative language (personification), characterization and symbolism. My students enjoy reading it every year. Some other books I do are "The Watson's go to Birmingham--1963", "Crispin" and "Julie of the Wolves".

We read this by Joan Lowery Nixon. We used it as a spring board to writing mysteries.
There are lot of cliffhangers, clues (including red herrings) foreshadowing and flashbacks.
I couldn't find any teachers lessons to go along with this, so we made a vocabulary word wall, some words I chose and some they did. They wrote, defined, and illustrated the word, then hung it up. Part of this story takes place in 1911, so there are some words like hatpin, that they were unfamiliar with, even though they could read it.
It is a pretty quick read, but printed in '85 or '86.
It is about Ancient Egypt which goes along with our ancient civ history curric.

Any realistic fiction book you can study character by comparing the main character with themselves.
