Events - 6th Grade

This week, the 6th grade student's will be working really hard on their Unit 2 EA2 assessment.  They have been doing research and reading articles about humans and how they can improve their lives through observing and interacting with animals.  They have taken notes from different articles they have read and snippets they have watched. 

Essay

Write a multiparagraph  expository essay explaining how people can improve their lives through observing and interacting with animals. In your essay, give examples from your own life, from texts you have studied in this unit, from your independent reading that has helped support your explanations.

We worked on the Introduction.

  • Starting with either a Quote or a Topic Sentence
  • Then they were to go on talking about the plan of the essay.  What were they going to talk about.
  • With the concluding sentence talking about their 3 chosen topics for their Body Paragraphs.

Monday we will start on their 1st Body Paragraph.

This is stressful for them so any help you can encourage them with be appreciated.
