6th Grade E.L.A.

Hello Olson students and families!

In our English Language Arts class, students engage with literature, explore poetry and spoken word, express creativity through writing, and actively listen to powerful stories of all genres. Our year will focus on working in student Learning Teams to grow in our reading, writing, language, and listening skills.


We will work to integrate the ten traits of the IB Learner Profile into our class work: Inquirer, Knowledgeable, Thinker, Communicator, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Taker, Balanced, and Reflective.


Students will receive a weekly Reading Log to help them continue the lifelong habit of reading for enjoyment. Olson scholars have access to thousands of books through our school’s fantastic Media Center, and we are always open to individual book requests!


Please feel free to reach out with questions at any time. I look forward to working with parents and students to make this a successful year for all.
