We will focus on the Engage New York ELA curriculum for sixth grade, as well as the district-adopted curriculum, Harcourt
We will be using Discovering Our Past for Social Studies.
Writing: We are working on Close Reading, and RACER paragraphs.
Reading: We continue to work on Story Devices (cliffhanger, flashback, foreshadowing, and suspense) in our interactive student notebooks. Students just finished reading Bud, Not Buddy and are analyzing myths.
Social Studies: Students are collaboratively working to creating a Google Slide presentation showing what they have learned about Ancient Rome.
Homework: Students should be reading 70 pages a week. We go to the library every two weeks and students can go on passes.

When you are absent, it is your responsibility to ask for assignments.
If you would like to retake a test or rewrite an essay, you must let me know within 2 days of receiving your grade. We will then make a plan on how we can work together to make sure you are given every opportunity to show me your best work.
STUDENTS MUST HAVE A COMPLETED STUDY GUIDE TO RETAKE A COMPREHENSION TEST, AND NOTECARDS TO RETAKE A VOCABULARY QUIZ.
I am here to help you, so please always feel free to ask me any questions or come to me with any concerns.
I do expect all of my students to follow the school rules as outlined in the District Handbook. We will go over these rules the first day of school.
