6th Grade Reading
We will create Interactive Notebooks that will be kept in class. These will consist of notes, graphic organizers, and handouts. Students will use scissors/glue/colored pencils to create these.
To be successful in class, students will need:
-1 college-ruled spiral notebook (70 pages is fine). (This will stay in our classroom. If your student is super-responsible, it may be taken each day and brought back for class.)
-Scissors and colored pencils. (kept in a pencil pouch in binder is fine - as long as it is accessible when needed)
-Glue stick or bottle. (They can keep in pencil pouch, or may donate to the class supply in the room)
-Section in a binder or a folder to keep handouts that are NOT placed into notebook.
It is the start of a new semester - so remember that grades will initially be "skewed"! When students only have a few grades in a class, the average will not be as accurate as when more grades are added. If your student did not do SSR time in class (absent) then they may show a D or an F, since that is 1 of 2 grades entered so far. As soon as more grades go into the system, averages will balance out...
