Aloha Friday!


Friday Assignment Turn-In  Aloha Friday! Congratulations on almost completing your first full week of 6th grade. Let's begin today by turning in all of your Language Arts assignments from the week. If you haven't already, please make sure you have completed and 'turned in' the assignments Learning to Read Story and Context Clues Practice. If these assignments have not been completed, please make sure you do so ASAP. Your grade in this class depends on it. 

Parkour Meets Newsela  Today you will be reading an informative nonfiction article at Newsela about the growing sport of parkour. To begin, get some background on parkour by checking  out the video below. 


Now head on over to Newsela and locate the article about how parkour is bringing different groups of people in China together. Select a lexile level that feels comfortable to you. I would recommend either 470L (Grade 3), 710L (Grade 4), or 1050L (Grade 7). After you finish carefully reading the article, take the quiz. If you finish early, feel free to read an article of your choosing and take its accompanying quiz. 

Accelerated Reader Goal-Setting  Today I will continue to meet with students to discuss your reading level, "just right" books levels, and to decide on your A.R. goal. Remember to record your personalized reading data and A.R. goal on document Reading Data and Goal-Setting Chart located in your Language Arts Google Classroom. I've placed in your Language Arts folders. 

Context Clues Quiz  If time permits, I would like you to show me what you know so far about context clues by taking the online quiz here. I will read read the questions and answers aloud and guide you through the quiz.
