Welcome to 6th Grade Language Arts!     

Special Notes:

 We are now focusing on FSA Reading Skills! This week we are focusing on figurative language, what types they are, and how to determine their meaning in context of a text.  All that we are working on is on Google Classroom. We will be taking a test on the figurative language terms in about a week.


** Handouts and other class materials are available in the locker (on the left bar).
