Sixth Grade News
Sixth grade is studying the adjective in this unit. They are picking them out of sentences and adding them to our diagrams of sentences. We will be writing descriptions in this unit using good adjectives and figurative language. One example paragraph will be a description of the students' favorite fruits. Students will bring in their favorite food. They will be writing a description that explores the feel, look, taste, and smell of the fruit.
The sixth grade will also be doing a project. They will pick an adjective word out of a cup and write the word like what it means. One example is "frigid". They are going to write the word like it actually is cold and freezing. Another student that the students will do is using a positive adjective (like big) and showing the comparative and superlative for that adjective (bigger, biggest).
