6th Grade Literature
We focus on becoming stronger readers by developing reading strategies and thinking critically about the variety of texts that we read including novels, short stories, poetry, and nonfiction work. Prentice Hall Literature is our textbook and online access is available through my Sycamore Education webpage.
In 6th grade we live the mission of Saint Ambrose through…
Faith – Students have many opportunities to put their faith in action by praying daily as a community and worshipping with the entire Archdiocese at the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the CHS Field in downtown Saint Paul.
Academics – Students are able to take the knowledge and skills they develop in the classroom and apply them to real life situations during a business simulation at Biztown.
Service – In conjunction with our SAINTS program, students complete service projects through the year including Feed My Starving Children and assembling Blessing Bags for those experiencing homelessness.
