Welcome to 6th grade Reading/ELA!
I will be your child's Reading/ELA teacher this school year. We will be focusing on improving reading and writing skills throughout the year and developing oral presentation skills. I will be helping your child learn to work more independently to revise and edit writing. Our curriculum is aligned to meet the Pennsylvania State Core Standards. Your child will be required to apply previously learned skills as well as those new to this school year.
Sixth graders are required to take a PSSA Reading/ELA exam in early spring. The work we do in class will help prepare your child to be successful. You can help at home by encouraging your child to do his or her best on ALL reading and writing assignments. All sixth graders should be regularly reading independently. Writing in a journal at home is also beneficial.
