Wrapping Up Wrinkle and Writing Cycle

by Mrs. Nilsen on December 8th, 2013

Weekly ELA News 12/2 - 12/6

These last few weeks of school always seem to fly by!  It just seems that yesterday it was September and we were covering the expectations for 6th grade reading and writing.  As this first term comes to a close, here are a few BIG ELA assignments due this upcoming week.  We've been working on them for a few weeks now, so they shouldn't come as a surprise to any of the students, but I thought parents might want a heads up:

Dec 9 -

Dec 10 - We will be finishing A Wrinkle in Time‚Äč today in class.

Dec 11 - Last Weekly Word Study for the trimester due.

Dec 12 - 2 published piece of writing due (one must be a memoir)

Dec 13 - Story Cube project due.  Students are also to turn in the ELA notebook for a final trimester grade.

Such exciting things!  I can't wait to read the finished memoirs.  Our 6th graders have been pouring their hearts and souls into these pieces.  I'm hoping to put them together in a formal book when the entire class is finished.
