Subject: Language & Literature - Grade(s): 6th Grade

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.” - Unknown

Welcome to your language arts classroom, Guardian Core. You are all bringing something special and unique to our class: yourself. You might have different likes and dislikes, different knowledge and skills, different hopes and goals from your classmates, but you share the need to learn and to grow. We will come together to share a space where we are free to express ourselves, to feel safe to try, and to sometimes fail. Failure comes from trying. Failure is a step toward learning.  

Over the course of the year, we will engage in a variety of communication activities. We will be reading, writing, speaking and listening every day. You will learn strategies to become better readers, techniques to write more effectively, skills to speak eloquently, and approaches to become a skilled listener.

We will have fun, but we will work hard.  It won’t be easy, but by the end of the year you will be better prepared to fulfill your dreams.
