Reading and English

"Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different..." C.S. Lewis




Reading:

Students have been applying strategies to help build reading comprehension. They have also completed plot mountains determining problem, introduction/exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and resolution for short stories. We will continue to practice this in the coming days.  

Sixth grade students are expected to read a minimum of 2 hours per week. Reading logs will be sent home each Tuesday for students to record their reading and for parents to sign. 
 

English:

Writer's workshop - Informative Writing


We continue to practice proofreading and language conventions using Daily Oral Language (DOL) Practice Sentences.  The students will make corrections to incorrectly written sentences. Corrections will be made to spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and grammar. This will be done on a weekly to semi-weekly basis.



Reminders:
