A basic idea of what should be in each paragraph...

I will post PDF copies of the homework here. I will also post copies of my root notes. Homework is assigned every Monday and is due the following Monday. I have put each week's documents under a separate heading. If you click on the large, red underlined words, it will take you to a section where you can click on the document title and get a PDF of what was handed out or examined in class.

PDF MILD Response Entries Q3 AND Q4   --  Students who chose this packet need to pick a different one of the entries to do each week. YOU WILL NEED TO REPEAT ENTRIES! Students are NOT filling in the blank- they need to re-write the entry including their own information from the book they are reading. MAKE SURE YOU CLEARLY LABEL WHICH ENTRY YOU CHOSE! This is considered "mild" because it gives you a lot of guidance about how you should be structuring your THREE paragraphs. You might need to change or add things to make it work with the story you read.
PDF General Organizer for Reader's Response   --  This is a graphic organizer to help you write the weekly reader's response. It gives you ideas for what should go in each paragraph. This will give you the expectations for the minimum. You can always write more to go above and beyond!
PDF Q4 MEDIUM Reader Response Choices   --  These are the new choices for Quarter 4. (You could also use choices for Q3 if one of them works better with what you are reading.) DON'T FORGET TO LABEL YOUR READER'S RESPONSE!
PDF Q4 SPICY Reader Response Choices   --  New choices for 4th Quarter! DON'T FORGET TO LABEL YOUR WRITING! Also, if you have another idea, come talk...
General Homework Help

This section contains documents and information to answer some of the questions parents and students might have about 6th grade homework.

It does not have information about any particular homework assignment.

Homework is generally assigned on Monday and due the following Monday.

It consists of TWO parts: the blue sheet with Greek and Latin roots AND a Reader's Response where students need to write three paragraphs reflecting on different aspects of what they are reading at home during their 100 minutes of reading.
