6 in September: 6 Word Book Reviews

This September, you and your students are invited to write 6 Word Book Reviews. We will use these snappy reviews as small signs in the library and for book recommendations.

How does it work? Simple! Here's how one school explains the rules:

"Choose any book, and write exactly 6 words about it.

Your six word review can be:

-about the essence of the story

-your reaction to the book,

-a teaser,

-a summary,

-a description of a character or scene

It’s your choice. It can be silly, serious or sly, as long as you say it in SIX."


When: between now and September 30

Who: any SMS student or staff

How: fill out this linked electronic form or turn in an Index Card to the library. Make sure to write clearly and include

  • your name and grade
  • your LA teacher
  • book title
  • author
  • 6 word review

Bragging Rights: 6 lucky cards will be drawn at random. These winners will receive fame and fortune.

Thanks for participating!
