Summer 2022 for the 2022-2023 School Year—

Sixth Graders and Parents,

For summer reading, I recommend that incoming sixers read two chapter books of their choice. In August, Mrs. Kelly will assess each student in fluency and vocabulary.  Based on how students perform, additional comprehension tests will be provided. Approximately 30% of our students are monitored for reading success throughout the school year and some students receive reading intervention in addition to regular reading class.

School starts on Tuesday, August 9th.  I look forward to meeting you and being your reading teacher.  The sixth grade team hopes to have a open house for parents in the evening, the week before school starts.

Please bring these supplies by the end of the first week:

Colored markers, glue sticks and highlighters to share in the class, 1 box of kleenex, Index cards, pencils, lined paper, purple folder and purple composition book for reading class. We also need some double stick tape, and scissor. A personal computer and charger are optional and are not needed until the second week of school.  You may also check out a personal computer from NPA.  Mrs. Kelly always welcomes donations of Bookman’s credit for our classroom library.

We have a book list for the school year.  All of these books are provided by NPA and you do not need to purchase your own. We also have a classroom library for student use. BookXListX2020

Happy Reading,

Mrs. Kelly

Welcome to Sixth Grade Reading! When I was in sixth grade, I received the award for reading the most books! So I am very pleased to be the reading teacher at NPA. I’ve enjoyed teaching in Northern Arizona since 1983. My experience includes teaching elementary-high school, community college and university students. I am also involved in the art community of Flagstaff and enjoy integrating the arts into my lessons. I appreciate establishing a personal relationship with my students and their families. My husband and I enjoy hiking, kayaking, traveling and cooking. We love having our daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren  in Flagstaff as well.

Sixth Grade Reading (Periods 1-3, 6-7) 


THIS COURSE DESCRIPTION


Students are provided with periodic informal reading assessments to determine individual reading fluency and comprehension levels. Instruction will cover the components of a balanced reading program. Informational text, novels, biographies, reader’s theatre, and poetry will be explored. Emphasis will be placed on fluency, vocabulary, comprehension and analytical reading. Literature studies, written expression, oral speaking and arts appreciation are integrated to broaden reading experiences. Some of the selected reading correlates with the 6th grade social studies program. The teaching of Common Core Standards is required in all lessons. A variety of approaches and multiple efforts are made to engage all learners.


August 2022


During the first quarter we will focus on the theme of empathy and compassion. We will read Wonder as a class and the handouts will correlate with this book. If you have already read this book multiple times, you may consider reading Auggie and Me. In addition, you will self-select one other book to read independently on the topic of empathy/compassion. Mrs. Kelly has some of these titles available so you may get a book on your own.  Books which are not on this list need to be pre-approved so you are reading age-appropriate material. Contact Mrs. Kelly by email to discuss your book choice. RecommendedXBooksXonXtheXtopicXofXDevelopingXEmpathy
