Welcome to 6th Grade ELA!
This year our ELA class will involve many independent and small group activities which will highlight our Common Core Standards. We will practice effective reading strategies for a variety of genres and will develop a writing portfolio which will include persuasive, explanatory, narrative, research, and poetry writing. Our activities will also introduce the students to effective public speaking skills so throughout the school year the class will be required to deliver four to five short speeches and presentations to the class. Students in our class will be expected to read for 30 minutes each night and will be responsible for a readers' response journal entry each night Monday through Thursday.
I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year. Never hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. I will be happy to do all that I can to assist you and your child!
