    Greek/Latin Words: These words are taught during our folklore unit. The sixth grade curriculum states that we are responsible for learning 57 words. Theses words will be taught in groups of 10 until we begin our novel (then groups of 5). Words will be taught and quizzed the following week. Students are expected to know the meaning of the words as well as figure out the meaning of new words based on the affix and context clues. These quizzes are cumulative-all words taught plus past words will be on the quizzes. Students are strongly encouraged to study 3-5 minutes per night. **SAT words and Greek/Latin words will not be taught at the time.

     

    Classroom Novel Studies: Throughout the year, we will read novels. Much of the information work regarding the novel will be found in Google Classroom.
