Mrs. Best's Sixth Grade ELA Class

  •   Welcome to Mrs. Best's Sixth Grade ELA website!  This is where you will find homework information and any classroom news!  I'm looking forward to having a great

    year with everyone!!!

     

     

    COVID-19 Remote Learning

     

    During this uncertain time, I would like my students to know that I miss all of you very much and I hope you are all well!  I hope you're using this time to reconnect and recharge with your family.  If you or your parents would like to contact me for any reason, I could be reached in the following ways:

    •     sbest@riversidesd.com
    • Remind App (If your parents haven't signed up, but are interested, please enter the number 81010 and text the unique code depending on when your child has my ELA class). 

         Period 3/4:  @fa32749

         Period 5/6:  @eg63hge

         Period 8/9:  @gk63hkg

    I will respond to your e-mail or text as soon as possible or within 24 hours.

    For a more immediate response, I will be available to answer any questions/concerns on Monday-Friday from 10:00am-2:00pm.  

       Beginning April 22nd, I would like my students to access their Google Classroom accounts to complete their mandated ELA work.  Every student has used this program before for their writing assignments.  Their username and password can be found on the inside of their agendas.  All ELA assignments can be found under the "Classwork" tab in Google Classroom.  Completion of these assignments is very important to your 4th quarter grade.  I will be communicating with anyone who is not completing the assignments and/or if the assignments are clearly misunderstood.  Otherwise, you will recieve the alloted points for good effort/completion.

    Did you know that there is a google classroom app that is available through the App store for Apple devices and Google Play for other devices?  It makes navigating the virtual classrooms easier and faster!  Download the FREE app from the App store or Google Play from the link below:

    Lastly, I am suspending the 4th quarter AR requirements, but I encourage you to continue to read nightly.  If you are running out of books to read, you can access TeenBookCloud at the following link to get free access to ebooks:
