6th Grade ELA
Welcome to 6th grade ELA!
We have several assignments that are on-going and will not be recorded in the assignments tab. These include:
Independent Novel Reading -Over the course of the year students will read 4 novels, one per quarter. Students will beexpected to read at least 3 times a week from their novel and work on their novel study packets after each reading session. Packets will be checked every Thursday before book study discussions begin. After the novel is completed students will need to answer 7 reflective questions in paragraph form. A copy of the questions are attached Independent Reading Project
Latin - Throughout the year we will continue our exploration of vocbulary by studying 50 Latin stems and 50 high level vocabulary. Our studies will come from Caesar's English II by Michael Clay Thompson. Each week students will get a Latin packet with 5 stems (odd number weeks) or 5 words (even number weeks). The work will be handed out on Monday and due that following Friday. Each Friday there will be a Latin quiz that covers that weeks words as well as a cummulative review of the words and stems studied in previous weeks. Students are encouraged to study nightly. One great resource for studying is www.quizlet.com. Once students have accessed the site they will need to search 6th Grade Ellis and it will have all of the words studied so far.
