Welcome to sixth grade!

This year, we will be exploring many important topics such as “facing fear” and “dealing with disaster” while reading some excellent stories and articles.  Over the course of the year, students will have the chance to write fiction pieces, personal narratives, informational articles, persuasive essays, and poetry.  And through it all, we will spark our curiosity, imaginations, and senses of humor.

Our goal as a class is not limited to developing our reading and writing skills, but also includes acquiring the personal skills to become independent and responsible learners.  We will be focusing on study strategies, organization, and self-regulation. 

I am very excited to be working with you this year to provide a meaningful and exciting school year for our sixth graders.
