Literature Circle Summary/Role Template
Sixth graders have completed their first rough draft writing, "Show Me the Way". In this piece they were writing about this year as if it is a journey. Once they have their laptops up and going, they will type the narrative. We have also started our regular vocabulary/spelling instruction and our daily language review, known as MUG (they should be able to tell you what that stands for).
We will be studying the following words for the next two weeks. A pre-test will be given next Wednesday and the final on Friday. Words: insincere, petty, quizzical, venture, and whim.
Finally, we have started our Shurley Grammar lessons with a review of the four types of sentences: declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory. On Friday, the students will be bringing home a parent help guide. This is a reference for you, and for your child to use if needed at home.
Books and guidelines will be given the first week of school.
Students interested in serving on Safety Patrol, The Immanuel Cancer Fighters, or helping with a new project called AnySoldier - info will come out the first week.
Safety Patrol training meeting will be Monday 8/13/18.
You can check out the webpages for each of these activities on our school page (under the essential tab).
The Anysoldier.com class-page has been updated with the wish-list to send to a unit of 270 soldiers in Afghanistan.
