Mrs. Huneycutt's Class

6th Grade Language Arts - Arbor Creek Middle School

Next week in Language Arts,

Over the next few weeks, we will be examining the author's purpose for writing. We will look at the difference between biographies, autobiographies, memoirs, and personal narratives.


There will be a Root Quiz (penta, phobia, phono, photo, phys, pod) on Friday. Notes are in the back of their notebook or on Edmodo.


There is a possibility of homework twice this week. The first is analogy practice 3 on Edmodo, and the other is correcting sentences that are run-ons or fragments.


** If your student is struggling with any of these new topics, please encourage them to come to tutorials.
