Look What We're Up To.....

To begin the year, we will review the elements of fiction and non-fiction. We will listen to several short stories from Unit 1 in our textbook during class,  and we will focus on identifying various elements of literature and determine how those elements help our comprehension. Students will be able to  listen to classroom stories and practice vocabulary skills outside of class by utilizing the Pearson website found on my links tab. 

Our focus in grammar for Quarter 1 will be on reviewing parts of speech and writing well-developed paragraphs. Students will be expected to write a topic sentence with 3-4 details sentences that follow, further supporting their main idea. We will finish up the quarter by writing our first essay of the year!

My 6th grade students will attend math class with Mrs. Schmidt this year. Please refer to her homework assignments on our Homework Hub on a daily basis. Students can practice math skills at home each night by logging in to the textbook website found on my links tab, or by practicing assigned lessons on ixl.com (also on my links tab).
