Last Nine Weeks of Sixth Grade
I hope you all enjoyed your Spring Break!! We are now in the last quarter of the school year and it is very important for all students to stay focused on what needs to be done to finish off the school year on a strong note.
Today, we are starting The Outsiders to apply those skills we learned at the beginning of the year when we studied fiction text. This is a book that the kids ALWAYS enjoy reading and it will be important for them to pay attention in class when we read aloud. We will be taking assessments on the book; therefore, if they miss any chapters due to absences, it will be their responsibility to get caught up. I have a couple of extra books in class; however, each student will not have their own book to take home because other classes are also reading this book so we do not have enough copies for everyone to check out.
Also, every student will need to complete a weekly reading log starting today. They can complete it on paper that they put at the back of the brads in their ELA folder; OR, I have a Google Form in Google Classroom again for them to complete. Once they have 15 AR points (minimum to qualify for AR recess) AND they have a 100 on their reading log grade, they will no longer need to complete a reading log.
I have enjoyed having your children in my class this year and thank you for all your support from home to help them be successful!!
