English Language Arts with Ms. Paddock

Welcome to 6th Grade English Language Arts with Ms. Paddock.

In English Language Arts we focus on critical thinking, composition, and communication.  We will read several novels supported
with rich poetry, short stories and informational texts.  Our first unit is Exploring Connections anchored by Seedfolks, a narrative writing project and an arts residency with the Walker Arts Center using stop motion animation.  Our first field trip will be in October to watch our movies at the Walker Art Center.

I hope to inspire a love of literature and language.
