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


Update for the week of 10/15/18

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.  

The students have begun reading Crash by Jerry Spinelli. We will focus on applying reading strategies throughout the novel. 

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 has begun! The students are crafting realistic fiction stories based upon real life experiences. They created "maps" of a special place to generate story ideas. Students will continue writing their stories. 

The narrative process piece is due Friday 10/19. Students should be working on this for 15 minutes per night.

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.
