Mrs. Huneycutt's Class
6th Grade Language Arts - Arbor Creek Middle School
Please make sure your student gets lots of rest and a wholesome breakfast. They do not need to bring their backpack, nor should they bring their iPad. I recommend a tote bag or a drawstring backpack. They should pack pencils, an eraser, water bottle, snacks, a lunch, and books.
Water is the only liquid permitted during the test. Snacks should not be loud or messy. Goldfish, pretzels, animal crackers, fruit, gummy bears, and string cheese are all great snacks.
I am so proud of these students. They have worked hard all year, and I know they will do their best. I gave them my pep talk and told them they CAN and WILL do great!
Next week in Language Arts,
We will go outside for sidewalk poetry! Students will choose any type of poem to write using sidewalk chalk. Then we will take a walk and read them. We will also analyze song lyrics with our TPCASTT form. Students will look for figurative language, rhythm, rhyme scheme in their favorite songs.
Pre-AP only - We will take our favorite lines form their song lyrics we analyze and site and embed them into our own poems.
