I will be your child's teacher for homeroom as well as Language Arts and Reading. In addition, I will be the Language Arts teacher for the entire sixth grade. We will cover lessons that are aligned to the PA Core Standards including the basic foundations of grammar, writing, reading and spelling. We will focus heavily on proofreading, the conventions of writing, and reading for a purpose. Our class will learn about strategies they can use in order to be effective readers. I want to elicit a love for reading in all of my students.
It is essential that your child reads a minimum of 30 minutes per night. In class, students will be given time to read with the 100 Book Challenge. Our classroom library also houses hundreds of books that your child is encouraged to borrow and enjoy. In class, we will be reading different genres of books, as well as non-fiction news articles and magazines. Please encourage your child to read. Reading promotes success.
I look forward to meeting and working with both you and your child this school year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
