It's a brand new school year and I'm in shock that technically our year is half over! Our 6th grade kiddos are closer to being 7th graders now! The format of my classes have changed slightly. We are no longer independent reading in class everyday, but having Free Read Friday's only. That means the students are no longer graded on reading logs and reading responses. However, we have added weekly reading comprehension packets that can give students up to 5 daily assignments grades. These are handed out on Monday's and worked on in class daily. They are not available electronically so if you lose one or miss a Monday make sure you get a packet from me ASAP. Also, we will go to bi-weekly spelling tests and bi-weekly vocabulary tests over the same group of words. These will be available here by Tuesday of each week.
