Dear Parents & Guardians,
I am so excited that your child will be in my reading class this
school year! Together, we will work hard and have great adventures
through reading!
As a sixth grade student, there are great expectations. As we
prepare to enter middle school, I will ask the students to act
responsibly when it comes to their class work and behavior. They will
become “Active Readers!” We will be integrating the Pearson Reading
Street Curriculum and independent pieces of literature. Students will
learn strategies to enable them to become an even better reader. PreAP and close reading strategies will be incorporated in our curriculum.
During the literacy block, we will also be integrating our writing.
Reading and writing go hand-in-hand! Your child will work on various
writing pieces that will be sent to middle school in the spring. Students
will also be keeping a free-write journal! You will be asked periodically
to write in these journals as well.
Please take a moment to read over our plan for this year. Do not
hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
Thank you,
Mrs. Sharp
