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 Daily 3 management structure to guide our learning. The three daily activities will include Reading, Writing and Word Work. The Daily 3 teaches students how to become independent learners. Each day will start with a whole class mini-lesson. Then, students will work independently on their choice activity for the day. During the Daily 3 choice activity time, it is vital that students are able to work quietly and independently. This is the time 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. 

This year we will be completing a writing program during our Daily 3 time. This program is called Writer's Workshop. It consists of a series of lessons that teach students how to become better writers. There are three units within the program:
  1. Personal Narratives
  2. Literary Essays
  3. Research-Based Information Writing
