My English class includes reading, writing, spelling, and grammar. This course is year long. You will keep a Journal of writing assignments and Bell Ringer activities. Spelling consists of three worksheets and a test each week. You will practice cursive writing by writing your spelling words at least once a week. The Literature book has a workbook of activities that go along with the readings. A writing folder is kept in my class where all writing assignments are kept. Grammar is an on-going study throughout the year. There is a SOL test in May covering the sixth grade English course.
