Mrs. Deckinga's 6th Grade ELA

Welcome to Mrs. Deckinga's class! We will be on a great adventure this year as we develop our literacy skills!

Required Materials

6th Grade ELA: Literacy Notebook* (composition book) - not the same one as your Workshop one, agenda / to do list / whatever you are using to manage your assignments, pencil, notebook paper, device (with earbuds), and novel.

*Literacy Notebook is the living, breathing document of student learning for our class. It is where students will explore language, its use, and its function. Where they will experiment with model text in their own writing, and reflect on their reading. It is essential that students have their Literacy Notebook daily.

Other Materials
Some students prefer to have their own instead of using shared classroom supplies. This is a list of materials we will be using throughout the year.
6th Grade ELA: Sticky notes, colored pencils, markers, glue stick, colored pens, water bottle (must be sealed, water only)
