Welcome to Mrs. Wayman's 6th grade ELA!
We are going to read A LOT - novels, short stories, poems, articles... we are going to TALK a lot, and even write a lot. I think the best thing about ELA is there is no one right answer. In fact, one of my favorite lines is, "You can say whatever you want as long as you can back it up." We don't even have to agree, we just have to be able to support our viewpoints with textual evidence and logical reasoning.
Here are some books we MIGHT read throughout the 6th grade school year (it changes year to year):
Athens Area School District Webpage
Parent and students can easily access grades through Powerschool.
Harlan Rowe Middle School has a link, which includes important updates for just our building.
Using the "student" tab, find access to fun, educational websites as well as district resouces for students.
Athens Spalding Memorial Library - the library offers lots of resources and book clubs for students!
Order Online: scholastic.com/bookclubs
Use our Class Code: TKXFT
Choose your books, pay with credit card or PayPal, and submit your order. Plus, ordering online typically gives you an extra $5 for every $25 in book orders!
Scholastic Book Clubs Paper Flyer: (they come home monthly)
Choose your books, fill out the order form, and return to me with a check made out to Scholastic Book Clubs.
EITHER WAY: Your books will come to our class, and I’ll hand them out for your child to take home.
