6th grade ELA - We have officially wrapped up Unit 1! If your student was absent, he/she will need to see Mrs. Wright or Mrs. Vance to see when this test can be made-up. Next week, we will work on writing - making sure that students can use RACE (restate, answer, cite, and explain) to completely respond to a short answer question. We will have library next week as well. Don’t forget to ask your student about his/her i-Ready progress. Students should have at least 6 completed and passed lessons at this point.

We are continuing our nonfiction unit and we will be reading about Civil Rights Heroes of WWII. We are also going to be reading the famous "I Have a Dream Speech" and will be watching the speech as it was recorded in 1963. Students will discuss the impact of reading a speech versus watching/listening to a speech. We are utilizing our Junior Scholastic resource for several articles to wrap up our nonfiction unit.
