Comprehensive Sixth Grade Spelling and Language Arts Curriculum

Spelling skills should develop as part of an overall language arts phonemic awareness, phonics, reading comprehension, vocabulary and reading fluency, grammar, reading and writing program. Children should (with help from their parents) develop their foundational spelling skills through an interest in words, regular writing, constant reading, a study of spelling rules, and playing of spelling games. Skilled, fluent readers are the culmination of the successful learning of a broad array of pre-reading and reading skills. Irrespective of family background, learning to be a skilled speller is often not a trouble-free process. Spelling programs, personalized tutoring, reading workbooks, spelling games, and structured computer spelling programs can help teach or reinforce these skills.

Some children need spelling practice, while others need more intensive remedial spelling programs. Parents can help their children with the spelling process by providing high-quality educational materials, establishing a pattern of daily spelling and reading, instructing through guided spelling activity, creating a rich language environment, discussing a child's progress with teachers, and following up on their recommendations.

Time4Learning offers fun, computer spelling and reading programs, which help reinforce spelling skills at home through educational activities and learning games. Learn more about Time4Learning's computer reading programs, we offer activities for kids, preschool to eighth grade.

Reading Comprehension Activities for Sixth Grade Students

To help students understand how to interact with the text, you can practice a number of reading activities. You must make them privy to the dialogue readers have with themselves while reading. Here is an example of the self monitoring reading comprehension questions that skilled readers ask themselves:

  1. Predict what will happen next in a story using clues presented in text.
  2. Create questions about the main idea, message, or plot of the text.
  3. Monitor understanding of the sequence, context, or characters.
  4. Clarify parts of the text which have confused them.
  5. Connect the events in the text to prior knowledge or experience.

To give your kid a window into the self-monitoring that skilled readers engage in as they read, demonstrate some of the reading activities for students listed above while you read aloud with them. Periodically stop and ask questions to make sure that they comprehend the story.

If you are reading a confusing passage, stop and say, "I didn't understand that. Did you?" Ask them to interpret the text, and after listening to their interpretation, say: "Interesting, Let's check and read this part again." Reread the passage and then discuss your new understanding.

Time4Learning teaches reading comprehension skills in a number of ways. There are variety of reading activities for students, which help young readers develop skills in approaching, reading, and interpreting text. Take a demo of Time4Learning's computer reading programs.
