Welcome to Ms. Finsterle's Sixth Grade Language Arts Class!
About Our Class
Students will be exposed to a variety of texts including fiction and nonfiction; articles, short stories, poems, plays, and more.
Students will be taught how to recognize figurative language, and how to identify plot, theme, characters, and context in different types of writing.
Students will engage in whole class and small group discussions.
Students will learn new vocabulary using context clues and pair share.
Students will use technology to conduct research, organize information, and draft and edit their writing.
I encourage all of you to get involved in your student’s education this year! We will have multiple school-wide events asking for volunteers and field trips that will need chaperones. Even if you only make it to one or two events, your involvement will make such a difference in the way your child feels about school!
Please feel free to contact me with your questions and concerns. I am always available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and by accessing this website.
