SIXTH GRADE CURRICULUM (LANGUAGE ARTS)

This year we will be focused on reading class novels throughout the year.  From these novels we will complete vocabulary, spelling, comprehension, writing, and note-taking activities.  In addition, we will explore Ancient Civilizations all through the year.  Below is a short guide as to what you can expect.  We will read the vast majority of those books listed depending on time.

This year the district is implementing a new curriculum called Benchmark.  We will be using that extensively on top of the novels as well.
