    Welcome to my classroom website! Say hi to my pride and joy, Gracie Mann, an Airedale terrier. She turned four years old on April 15th. You will be hearing a lot about her and her goofy habits this year along with my obsession with diet Dr. Pepper. Sit back, relax, and learn a little bit about what we will be doing in room 316.
    In ELA class we will be working on sentence structure, grammar, open-ended response structure, paragraph structure, and narrative, argumentative, and informative writing. We will be using our reading strategies: determining important ideas, making connections, inferring, questioning, synthesizing, visualizing, and monitoring and repairing understanding as we read fiction and nonfiction selections.
    This year we will be using the newly adopted Houghton Mifflin Harcourt series Collections. The series contains both a student edition and close reader. Both include a variety of genres of literary texts, informational texts, and media.Collections will also be available for on line use. Writing, speaking, and grammar is also addressed in the text.
    This year will be a fun and exciting 6th grade adventure!
    Don't forget to visit to my helpful websites page. Stay tuned to learn more about what's happening in room 316!
