This year the six grade students will be emersed in a vocabulary rich environment. We will constantly be looking at new ways to comminate with one another using powerful words. In addition, the students will focus a large portion of their time on their grammatical skills using the Reading Street Language Arts Program.
Furthermore, the students will be guided as writers using the Being a Writer curriculum to practice, and fine tune their skills by writing expository nonfiction, perssuasive nonfiction, fiction, and personal narrative.
To help the students gain a better understanding of what these types of writings look like they will be able to dive into our classroom library, as well as the school's library.
