Welcome to 6th Grade Reading
Welcome to 6th Grade Reading. My name is Mrs. Gonzalez. I have been teaching for Chicago Public Schools for the past 28 years.
I am looking forward to working with your children. This year we will be focusing on both fiction and non-fiction. We will be reading the novels Seedfolks, Wonder, The One and Only Ivan, Esperanza Rising and Breadwinner. We will also be studying various poets and will be reading poetry on a weekly basis. Your child will have weekly vocabulary quizzes, using the words from the text.
Although we are starting the year differently, I am still working to give your child the best possible education. I am looking forward to building a partnership with all parents to collaborate for an excellent year.
