6th Grade Essay: The essays have been graded and entered into Skyward. Students will be shown samples and analyze the rubric used in grading. Revisions can be made on the Essay Scorer program and reprinted to submit for a better grade. I will stay after school November 4th, 5th, and 6th from 3:00-4:00 if tutoring is necessary.
Class Motto: We read closely, think deeply, and write completely!
AR Reading: 2nd 9 Weeks testing begins October 13th. Students should have two books checked out. Students are
given opportunity most days of the week to read and AR test as well as check
out books when they have finished testing. Students should try to achieve their
point goal by earning a few points each week. Students are assigned points
according to their Reading FCAT scores. The point chart is listed in the
planner on page 20. Deadline days are posted on an attached .pdf document. If your child is reading a large book, then they should be sure
to get approval by me. If a student waits until the last week to test on a "big book" and fails the
test, he or she is in jeopardy of not making their goal and earning a poor
grade for the marking period.
Students may also want to revisit some of the lessons from class at home. They can do this through LearnZillion, an online tutorial of the new Florida Standards for English Language Arts. https://learnzillion.com/ Enter Quick Codes to find lessons
