Mrs.Dummer

Welcome!  This page will serve as my weekly calendar for sixth grade Language Arts for the 2017-2018 school year.

Please note that independent reading time is an expectation in this class.  Failure to bring a book or the same book to class regularly will result in students staying after school to make up missed reading time.   I will regularly conference with students about their reading material so I can better track reading progress and help keep students on track to read at least 20 books by the end of the school year.  Homework in this class is primarily 20 minutes of independent reading time.  Please encourage your child to read 5 of 7 days per week in order to grow as a reader.  Thank you for your help and support at home.  I look forward to a great 2018-2019 school year.


My Scholastic online ordering code is HCVR6.  Please let me know if you have any issues ordering online.

STANDARD HOMEWORK: Read choice book for at least 20 minutes each night


**Weekly homework is independent reading at home of choice books.  THIS IS IN ADDITION TO THE 20 MINUTES WE PROVIDE SOME DAYS IN CLASS.  Please encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes each day.  Research shows regular reading (nearly daily) for a minimum of 20 minutes will yield one grade level growth over the course of a school year.  If your child is reading below grade level he/she should be reading more than 20 minutes a day to try to close the gap. **
