Welcome to 6th grade ELA at Oakland Middle School! We are going to have a great year together! We will be doing a considerable amount of reading. Each student is required to read 100 minutes a week. Research shows that this is time well spent to make us all smarter. Reading logs will be turned in weekly. Your child will be able to choose what he/she reads. At various times we will be completing written assignments online through Edmodo about what we are reading.
