Welcome to Mrs. Julie Baker's
Sixth Grade ELA Class!
Welcome to Sixth Grade ELA! My name is Mrs. Julie Baker. I have been married to my husband, Randy Baker, for twenty-two years, and we have two beautiful sons. My oldest son, Kyle, works for a landscaping company; and my younger son, Dylan, is in ninth grade at the Waynesboro Area Senior High School. This year is my twenty-fourth year in education. I am certified in the fields of elementary education and administration, with a Masters in Reading, and a Reading Supervisory Certificate.
The "Clip It" Behavior Chart is incorporated throughout our entire building. Please view the Behavior Chart attached below. Each student begins the day "Ready to Learn", and the goal is to do a "Great Job", and be a "Super Student." Your child's behavior is an important part of education, therefore it would be beneficial to work as a team in order for your child to succeed!

Your child will have the following homework Monday-Thursday:
1. Read 20 minutes from the class assigned novel or a free choice novel.
2. One summary will be due each Friday from the free choice novel. The summary should be at least 5 sentences in length. At the end of the summary, students are to make a prediction, write a question, or make a connection.
3. When reading a class novel, a chapter may be assigned to read as homework. Plus, students may be asked to answer a few comprehension questions.
If your child does not complete his/her homework assignment, it will be recorded as a missing assignment. If your child misses three homework assignments for ELA, a lunch detention will be issued.
