Students begin the Language Arts block with 10 minutes of independent reading (a novel of their choice). I encourage students to get into the daily habit of reading even if it is for 10 minutes before they go to bed. They will be entering the titles they have read into their reading log. We will be working towards a book report in the coming month.
We have started a read aloud, the novel Wonder by R.J. Palacio. We will work on reading comprehension and discuss different themes covered in the book.Students will also be reading short fiction and non-fiction texts to develop their language and reading comprehension skills.
We are currently working on writing detailed paragraphs. The focus is on form and content.
Communication skills are important at every level. Grade 6's will be working to improve different skills: capitalization, punctuation, grammar, sentence and paragraph construction.
Printing and typing are a part of the publishing process. Students have started practising cursive writing and typing on the Chromebooks.
