  • Must have the class novel, Wonder by R.J. Palacio no later than Monday 9/26 because that is when we are starting our novel study. I suggest buying online because the price is lower.

  • ON WEEBLY: please add a new blog page under novels entitled Independent Novel.
    • If you are having trouble please watch this video.
  • Your first Weebly Entry is due Thursday 9/29/16 on your Independent Novel. Please refer to the rubric and multiple WEEBLY videos to help you while you write.

Hello 6th Grade Families!

Today, the 6th graders received their Grammar for Writing workbooks that will be our guide for grammar this year. We discussed the new note taking process. This will probably be the only thing that is due the day after it is assigned. Students will just have to write down the notes (no more than one page) for the next grammar topic that we will be talking about. This will free up at least 20 minutes from class time and allow us to focus on practicing the grammar. 

Both groups also had the opportunity to start writing a response paragraph to go along with the summary paragraph we wrote last week for an excerpt from Schooled. Tomorrow we will continue with grammar and working on the Entry that is due this week for each student's independent novel. Usually this is done as homework, but the first one I will set aside specific class time for the students to work, so I can see that they understand. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
