Welcome to Ms. Birdlong's page
Welcome to sixth grade ELA.
This year we will be reading some exciting novels, sharpening our writing skills, and enhancing our vocabularies.

GRADE ENHACEMENT OPPORTUNITY
Students are being given the opportunity to improve each of their report card grades 1 letter grade. For each 9 weeks you would like to improve your grade in ELA, you will need to complete a reading packet.
Click on the Blackboard tab to find the packets. Students will need to complete all work associated with the link in order to get credit. There are a total of 5 worksheets that will need to be completed and turned in for each packet. Students may turn in worksheets electronically to their teacher or they may turn them into the school.
Students who do not have internet access may pick up paper copies of the packets from the school.
Hello everyone,I know that we have been out of school for some time and that it is projected that we will not be having face to face class for the rest of the year. I wanted to take this time to let each and every one of my students know that I miss you all and that I’m saddened that I won’t get to see your smiling faces, hear your jokes or say good morning/good afternoon to you all again this year. Though we will not be having face to face class and we won’t get to see each other I wanted to remind you that I deeply care about each and every one of you and I hope you and your families are doing well during this time.My other hope for my students is that you have not all checked out academically and are still working on assignments to keep yourselves sharp. I've noticed that achieve 3000 has had little traffic and I hope that is just because you may not remember your passwords if that is so don't hesitate to ask for your achieve username or password.Sincerely with care, Ms.Birdlong
Hello parents and students,
I wanted to let you all know that I now have a blackboard page which will provide a more convenient way to publish information and educational content. To get to my blackboard website you can do that two different ways, you can go to the fifth tab on the left hand side of this website labeled Blackboard which will take you to a link that you can click or you can type in blackboard into any search engine and go through the course catalog and search my name.
I look forward to you all being able to use the site effectively and remember that if you have any questions I am an email away. I also would like to remind students that working on their achieve at this time is very beneficial to their academic growth and that they should at least be doing three activities per week with a goal of 75 of above on the first try.
To get to the educational resources/work that the school board has provided for middle school students you can click on the link below or go to the link provided on the main CPSB website. This work will be updated weekly to give students up to date activities and assignments.
