Course Descriptions for 6th Grade Math and English
Course Description: The 6th Grade Language Adventure is the first step to preparing for HEED’s middle school language arts program. The course is designed to learn the traditions of a language arts program through teacher-guided, interactive lessons. Each week the class will contain 4 elements:
1. Grammar, Instruction and fun
2. Vocabulary, introduction and review of words
3. Writing Fundamentals
4. Literature Adventure Projects (3 projects)
The grammar curriculum is Easy Grammar, which utilizes a prepositional approach where students memorize prepositions to then eliminate from sentences, making finding the noun and verb much easier. The vocabulary program is Wordly Wise 7, where students will review words in class and complete assignments during the week at home. The writing curriculum follows Building Writing Skills Level 2, where the instruction introduces the five steps in the writing process and will focus on expository, persuasive, and personal narrative writing. Our Literature Adventures will include the students making a fall reading selection and a spring reading selection from a list of books. They will then complete a hands on project showcasing the theme and what they learned from the book. These will be selected from historical books complementing their current history adventures. Finally they will finish the year with a final Lewis and Clark Journal project.
