• As a student enters into the classroom, he or she enters into a positive learning environment where kindness, respect, and consideration for others opportunity to learn are expected behaviors. Proper classroom behavior will be taught, demonstrated, and practiced throughout the year.
    • Students are expected to write the objective for each day in their planner so that they know what the academic focus is for each day of learning, and also so that parents may check in with their child to know what is being taught. The curriculum is developed as Standards Based lessons taught in mini-lesson format to support ELA reading and writing.
    • Students practice active listening skills with each other and during lessons. Students formulate verbal responses with Accountable Talk to each other in small group discourse, and also individually when called upon for whole group discussion.
    • Students are expected to ALWAYS have a book to read so that they may increase reading fluency and Lexile scores.
    • 6th ELA is a 1:1 classroom, which allows students access to their own assigned Chromebook for class assignments. Expectations with this privilege are in place to ensure a safe digital platform for learning. 
    • Accountbility is important in our classroom.  Data folders go home at the end of the week and are expected to be returned on Monday with parent signature.
