These skills help students build awareness of the connection between reading and writing while they build confidence as readers and writers. Pictured are students working on a Skills lesson where they are learning the different spelling combinations of the long a sound /ae/ 'ay', 'a_e', 'ai' as in day, cake and rain using a word sort. On the wall is a reference chart for students to refer to that shows how their mouth should be shaped to make the different sounds in the vowel valley,diphthongs, fricatives, nasals, and more.

“For some reason or other, a Hershey bar would save my soul right now.” —The Dharma Bums, by Jack Kerouac The Aztecs used it as currency. Robert Falcon Scott took it to the Antarctic. The 3,700-year-long history of chocolate is full of twists and turns, making it a rich and rewarding research topic. In this unit, students explore primary documents and conduct independent research to better understand the strange and wonderful range of roles that chocolate has played in cultures around the world throughout its long history. Pictured are Mrs. Scaggs' sixth grade students doing an introductory activity as they prepare to write a short piece aimed at convincing readers that their favorite kind of chocolate is the best; white, dark or milk chocolate. Throughout these activities, students learn to develop their positions by carefully analyzing source documents, and building their arguments on solid, relevant evidence.
