Every day we will start with a "Bell Ringer" activity on our Chromebooks. On Fridays - I will provide students with an INSPIRATIONAL VIDEO. You can see these videos by asking your child to go to my Google Classroom.
All students at Central Middle School will have their own Chromebooks to use during the day. We are extremely excited about all the opportunities, creativity, lessons, projects, academic enhancements and fun this technology provides in our classrooms.
Students will be using google classrooms at school - and will be able to access much of their work at home if they have access to the internet.
Google Apps on the Chromebooks also makes it easy for students to work in groups and create shared projects and documents.
Our Literature/Language Arts book is accessible on-line. Students will often read their "textbooks" on-line. This book is also accessible at home at: Pearsonrealize. com.
Notes were sent home, giving you directions, User name and Password Information.
Literature / Language Arts Program
We will be using a Literature & Language Arts program by Pearson. It is correlated to the Common Core Standards and has many components to help us teach our students and prepare them in their reading, writing and language skills.
The focus in 6th grade is to apply basic elements of literature (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution, characterization, setting, tone, text structure, point of view, genre, figurative language) to higher level thinking and writing.
Writing will include narrative, persuasive, compare-contrast and expository essays.
Writing will also focus on writing excellent responses to prompts about text.
