Language Arts at a Glance

Welcome to 6th grade language arts! 
 
This year we will be focusing on improving your reading, writing, vocabulary and speaking skills. We will be using the Lucy Calkins Reading and Writing Units of Study, as well as the Scholastic Scope Magazine to help students become independent learners. Each day will start with a whole class mini-lesson. Then, students will work independently on their focus assignment for the day. It is vital that students are able to work quietly and independently during this time, as students will be participating in a one-on-one or small group conference with the teacher. This time allows the teacher to focus on each student's individual needs.
