Ms. Brounkowski's 6th Grade ELA Homepage

  • Welcome to my announcement page.  This page will include an overview of the week's learning agenda, important classroom, and schoolwide information.  More detailed information for each school day can be found on "Canvas". 

    How to get to Canvas:

    MBMS students log into "Launchpad" where the "Canvas" app, along with other apps, can be found.  Once a student is in "Canvas", my ELA course will be one of those shown on my students' "Dashboard".  Click on ELA, go to "Modules", look for the week of interest, and the information of each day's instruction can be found along with links and supporting files.  


  • Students that need to be absent are to email me each morning, and I'll communicate the day's assignments.  After you do some of the work, you can confirm or get clarification of understanding.  Too many students, most, are not checking Canvas and have excuses why the work is not complete.  Emailing me each morning should help with that.  

    To Know:  
    We have a "Casey at the Bat" test Thursday.  Tomorrow, I'll put all the things you need to study.  The Bell Ringer's will have review practice too.  
    We review the rhyme scheme/pattern for the stanzas of this poem.  Remember, we did this with "Casey at the Bat" - AABB ...


    “Will you walk a little faster?” said a whiting to a snail. _____  

    “There’s a porpoise close behind us, and he’s treading on my tail. _____  


    See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance! _____  

    They are waiting on the shingle—will you come and join the dance? _____  


    Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance? _____  

    Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance? _____  


    “You can really have no notion how delightful it will be _____  

    When they take us up and throw us, with the lobsters, out to sea!” _____ 


     But the snail replied “Too far, too far!” and gave a look askance  _____ 

    Said he thanked the whiting kindly, but he would not join the dance.  _____ 


    Groups are discussing the BEST evidence for the claim and explaining why it's the best.  Then, they list which evidence is 2nd and then 3rd without explanation.  We'll use it to compare data.  I hope you can read the evidence, or you can zoom it to read.
