Language Arts Resources for Parents

It was a pleasure to meet so many parents last night! Below are a couple of points of interest from the night.

First, I am including a written summary of the newly adopted EL Education curriculum resource provided to us by Wake County. In addition to the summary, below is a link to a video that Wake County made as an introduction to the EL. I hope you find these resources helpful. I am looking forward to what this year has in store for us!

I had several parents ask for a copy of recommended books for sixth graders, so I will include that document as well. I found this resource in Donalyn Miller’s book, The Book Whisperer. Miller, a sixth grade language arts teacher in Texas, asked her students to compile the list, so these are recommendations for sixth graders, by sixth graders!

I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you so much!
