6th Grade Core

Language Arts & Ancient Civilizations

Sixth grade Core covers three class periods of your child's day. In Core, students study both Language Arts and Social Studies. Language Arts includes Reading and Writing Workshop, word work (vocabulary), and conventions (grammar, punctuation, and spelling). In Social Studies students learn about the history of ancient civilizations -- and the study of history itself. Report cards will show one letter grade for Core, which will reflect a student's effort and achievement in all Core subjects.
