WELCOME 6th GRADERS
Welcome to 6th grade ELA. I am so excited to share this year with all of you. Through writing, reading, creating projects and critical thinking we will have a classroom filled with creativity! The goal this year is to create a supportive atmosphere in our classroom where we are all comfortable sharing our opinions and passions for the texts we will be reading.
We will be reading four core novels. The books listed below will be discussed as part of the 2017-2018 reading curriculum for 6th grade.
Students will be required to have a copy of each of these books during the 2017-2018 school year (hard copy or digital is acceptable). It is recommended that you purchase or download the texts listed ahead of time to ensure that your child is prepared in Literature class. We will also be learning about positive thinking strategies and will have a lot of free writing time, no books are required for this.
