6th Grade Reading




    Greetings! In November and December, we are doing a deep study of character with fiction. Students are learning skills that promote seeing characters complexly and then applying those skills to their independent reading. Our curriculum is based on Columbia University's Reading Workshop for 6th Grade. Students are expected to keep a binder in the classroom and a composition notebook that goes with them between school and home. Students have 20 minutes of reading homework, Monday through Thursday. Along with this, they need to jot their thoughts down in their notebook. This is how they practice their reading strategies at their "just-right" reading levels. Students will use their Chromebooks to write longer responses to text and also to enhance their language skills, including vocabulary. Students are working hard this fall!
