Welcome to 6th Grade ELA!
My name is Mrs. Harper. This is my third year teaching at Lynn Lucas. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.  I love reading.  I believe that with a good book, you can travel the world.  I am married and have 3 boys. Braden is 10, Logan is 7, and Ethan is 4.  They definitely keep me busy!
This is going to be an exciting year and I can't wait to get it started! I will post weekly updates along with any homework or projects due. Please feel free to email me anytime with any questions or concerns you may have.
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.  The man who never reads lives only one.”-- George R.R. Martin

Greek and Latin Root words- We will be using these throughout the year.
 Extra Credit- 6th grade ELA is allowed one extra credit assignment per nine weeks. It will be a Cosplay Book Report. Instructions and rubric are below. It will take the place of the lowest major grade. 
We will be utilizing tablets in 6th grade this year. Each student will be assigned a tablet that will stay in each core subject class. This is a big responsibility and I want students aware of my expectations in ELA. Technology is an amazing tool and I love using it in class!
Each Monday is designated as College awareness at Lynn Lucas. Students are encouraged to wear their favorite college shirt each Monday in support.
Eat 'em up Kats!!
