Welcome to 6th grade language arts! Thank you for visiting my page.
I am so excited about the school year. I love teaching language arts! This is my 16th year of teaching.
We have finished our core novels. Currently, we are reading a variety of short stories and poems in various genres. In 6th grade, students are encouraged to expand the genres they read!
Friday 9/27 Students received their second reading log. It is due this Friday, Oct. 11. We will visit the media center Thurs. because the library will be closed on Friday.
~~Each week, students should read 100-120 minutes at home.
~~This reading can include reading and review for other classes, magazine and online articles, and an independent reading book. I do have magazines and classroom library books available for check out.
OUR UNIT TEST will be Wed. Oct. 16th. It will cover: short story, poetry, parts of speech and figurative language.
