Mrs. Allen

Welcome to 6th grade Language and Literature.   I look forward to working with each of you this year.  Our goal will be to create our own opinions from text and back our thoughts up with evidence to develop a deeper understanding of the text and ourselves.       If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me either by phone or email.

Students should be reading 20-30 pages nightly in their independent reading book. They should then log it on their weekly reading log. Written response to reading will be completed in class. Reading Logs/Think Boxes will be turned in biweekly on Mondays as a mastery grade assessment.
Students will be given 15 vocabulary words to study and use over the course of a two week period. They will have nightly assignments to complete that will focus on using the words in context which will prepare them to take a quiz at the duration of the two weeks. Quizzes will be recorded as a mastery grade.
