WELCOME to SIXTH GRADE ELA!

Did you know?
September is Hispanic Heritage Month! One of my favorite Hispanic authors is Gary Soto--we will read some of his poetry later on this school year. 
Author Jon Scieszka celebrates a birthday on Sept. 8th! He is, of course, the author of Knucklehead, our current (and hilarious) read aloud (it's also an autobiography, which is our ELA focus this semester). Other famous authors who were born in September include Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Shel Silverstein (Where the Sidewalk Ends), and Gail Carson Levine (Ella Enchanted).
