On Our Way!

8 days into 6th grade and we are all in full speed! The writers in ELA 6 have already learned about Story Elements (setting, plot, complication, protagonist and antagonist), the Elements of Plot, and are now diving into the types of Conflicts that make a story interesting.

We love to work with partners and I am impressed at how well the teams worked together and completed their tasks in a timely manner. Different teams presented their stories to the class with applause after each reading. The stories ranged from girls on the wrong train, the never ending drama of Banana Man, a mermaid girl with a secret and a crush, Noodle Man on Tokyo Towers, and a few Unicorns and Rainbows! 

It is never  a dull moment in our English Language Arts class --
and I would not want it any other way!

Reminder that Thursday is Parent Back to School Evening starting at 17:00 in the Cafeteria. I look forward to seeing everyone and having a chance to say hello.
