5th and 6th grade Newsletter November/ December
5th/6th GRADE READING
For the next two months, the fifth grade will be working on : Figurative language such as idioms, adages, proverbs and alliteration. We will also focus on summarizing text by identifying two or more main ideas. Visual and multimedia elements can contribute to a text. The kids will be working on texts that are accompanied by those multimedia elements.
The sixth grade will be reading texts and determine the author's purpose or point of view. Determining the central idea and summarization of that text will also be a skill we practice in the next two months. The students will also be given memoirs or biographies and learn how to compare and contrast the author's presentation styles of the information.
