Mrs. Huneycutt's Class

6th Grade Language Arts - Arbor Creek Middle School

Next week in Language Arts,

We will write three poems next week. The I Am poem allows students to reflect and look back on how much they have grown this year. Diamante poems are always fun because they compare two things. The last poem is a Life Simile/Metaphor poem. Students will compare life to something using a simile or metaphor.


We are continuing STAAR prep! We are calling it twinkle twinkle little STAAR to ease test stress and anxiety. The reading STAAR is Tuesday, May 10. We will review dictionary skills, question meanings, and test taking strategies.
