To all parents and students in 6th grade ELA…
This site will be used to pass along information pertaining to ELA. If there are questions you have that are not answered here, please feel free to email me at the address found on this site.
Every lesson can be found on your child’s Google Classroom account.
What is the last book you read that made you laugh?
Materials needed for class EVERY DAY:
Pen or pencil
Optional: Headphones, mouse (I have some in the classroom that are available but many students bring their own.)
Reading Strategies we use to help comprehension of any text:
Before Reading the Passage
1. Read the title, skim and scan for graphs, tables, photos, and captions.
Reading the Passage
3. Read the selection TWICE.
After reading the passage
4. Place and “x” or a check ON the word that makes the answer “a lie” or “the truth.” Do not place it on the letter of the answer, place it on the WORDS that make that answer correct or not. This makes you think through each answer carefully.
5. Write the paragraph/sentence number where you found the answer next to the question.
