Welcome to 6th Grade Language Arts!

You can click the link to my TPT Class Fund Page! This helps us do fun escape rooms, station activities, and other resources that just take time to set up.

You can also click the Link to my Amazon Teacher Wishlist. Anything you purchase for our classroom is greatly appreciated! I will edit and update this list throughout the year based on class donations, projects, current readings, etc. 

Thanks for all you do!

Supply Lists for All Classes. Each student should have:

  • Pencils - mechanical are best
  • Binder with dividers and paper
  • Coloring utensils - crayons, colored pencils, and/or markers. Student's choice!
  • Composition notebook for writing journal.
  • Highlighters (three or four different colors)
  • Glue sticks
  • Keep all loose materials in a pencil pouch

**Students may be asked to obtain project supplies throughout the year.**

If you’d like to donate any extra materials for classroom use, it would be much appreciated!

6th Grade Novels

I *highly* encourage each student to purchase their own copy of the novels we read because I teach and encourage annotating the text in the book.

We will read (in this order) The Giver by Lois Lowry,  Among the Hidden by , and A Long Walk to Water by (Linked here to Amazon if that's helpful).

**We will start reading The Giver on Tuesday, September 8 (after Labor Day).

We will spend about 9 weeks on each novel between reading, activities, essay writing, and multiple choice/EOG practice.
