6th Grade Writing


 We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in the retrospect.                -Anais Nin


Students are in the last phase of writing informational essays. We are focused on the informational writing process: building strategies that produce excellent, organized, clear informational essays. Students have a step by step sequence to follow in Google Classroom, under "Informational Essay Project." They have other reference materials that they have created, such as foldables in their writing notebooks, transition words, and a link to the Perdue Owl website (for grammar).


Students are enjoying their Chromebooks. They use them to write essays and also to practice their writing skills using IXL and other apps. Students also use their Chromebooks to improve their writing skills, including parts of speech, grammar, and individualized spelling.
