6th Grade ELA Weekly Newsletter

10/17- 10/21

This Week in Class....

Woohoo! We finally made it to the end of the first 9-weeks! (And when I say finally I'm totally kidding.......time has flown by so fast!) I have truly enjoyed watching your students transition and get comfortable with middle school. The difference from the first week until now is amazing! I'm not sure what they are like at home, but I can tell you that in my class they are silly, witty, bright, insightful, and overall a joy to be around. I am certainly blessed to be their teacher!

This week students will present their projects, take a 6th grade screener (see flyer attached below for details), take their 9-weeks test*, and spend 2 days exploring theme. Don't forget, Friday is Early Release at 1:00pm.

*For the test, students will want to look at past quiz materials (all linked below) and refresh themselves on the stories we have read in class. They are welcome to look at those stories during SSR time, or come in during tutorial time. Questions from the stories will come from discussions we have had in class.

Reminders:
  • 9-Weeks Project is due on MONDAY. (Link to the assignment is below.) Students will choose only 1 project from the list to complete at home and bring to school on Monday, October 17th.
  • Screener on Tuesday
  • 9-weeks Test on Wednesday
  • Early Release on Friday @ 1pm
  • Movie Night @ Stonebriar AMC! Check your email for details. Link is also below. :)
