hittin the books Mrs. Ellen Brandt 6th Grade ELA


        In sixth grade, students need to complete five See Readers each week and 45 minutes of I-ready lessons. Make sure you put parent conferences on your calendar - March 15th and 16th.  

        The sixth grade  is now in Module 3. This module and the next include plenty of writing.  The following is a synopsis of Module 3. It's main focus is on viewing the world through the eyes of animals and claim or argument writing: 


    Throughout the module, Through Animal's Eyes, students will learn about animals' lives in relationship to humans. They will read various texts about animals to develop opinions about the ways humans interact with animals and how we treat them. Students will gather and synthesize evidence from the articles and literature they have read throughout the module to formulate written arguments that fully elaborate their positions.

             Parents, please feel free to contact me regarding your student's progress. Reaching out via class DoJo is always an easy way to reach me. Also, please be aware that students will be going outside for recess. When the weather begins to get chilly, please remember to send your child with a hat, coat, and gloves. 



    Students are not members of my Google Classrooms and WILL have to join.

    They will be able to do this from their Chrome books in school. 

    I can be reached via Class DoJo or email. My email address is brandtel@orange.k12.nj.us
