Welcome to 6th Grade Language Arts!
I am Mrs. Fiessler and I am very excited for the new school year! There are several things that will appear on my webpage. The Language Arts Curriculum will be broken into different Units and Collections. Each Quarter we will be focusing on a new Unit. On the website you will be able to find the specific Unit we are working on in class, due dates for all assignments such as homework, vocabulary, class assignments and projects. I may from time to time upload photos of something special that we have completed in class!
The Units we will be covering are:
- Collections Unit 3-"Dealing with Disaster"
- Collections Unit 4-"Making Your Voice Heard"
- Collections Unit 6-"What Tales Tell"
- Collections Unit 1-"Facing Fear"
Every other week I will be assigning vocabulary homework. The vocabulary words will be listed on the Teacher Website. I also will be assigning homework from our Close Reader Workbook that ties in with our Collections class book. I will post due dates for these in the calendar section of my webpage. The following shows my contact information via email or telephone:
