Basic Skills Sixth Grade Language Arts!
In 6th Grade Basic Skills Language Arts, we will read narrative and expository based literature, with a focus on fluency techniques, and an emphasis on attaining new vocabulary, and comprehension and recall of factual information. We will also continue to focus on important elements of literature, including: characterization, plot, setting and theme.
Here are some questioning techniques that you can use with your child as you discuss literature at home...
What was your favorite part of the novel? Why?
Who was your favorite character? Why?
What was the most interesting thing you learned from the novel?
Why do you think the author wrote the novel?
If you could change one thing about the novel, what would it be?
Reading at home continues to be important, and is encouraged!
