Welcome!

Welcome to the Sixth Grade!
I am extremely excited to be teaching Reading/Language Arts at Magnolia Sixth Grade again this year. Educating children is a passion that continues to grow within me, as I strive to teach all children in their unique challenge zones. My goal is to instill in students that reading and writing is the launching point from which their grasp of the English Language can become a tool for accelerated thinking: the more students read, the greater their vocabulary acquisition. When students learn to use Language as the vehicle for their unique expression, their voice in the world increases.
On a personal note, I have been married for twenty-eight years. My husband is a great source of support for my life and also for my commitment to teaching. He has helped me raise two amazing kids.
Both of my children attended the Magnolia Sixth Grade Campus and graduated from Magnolia West. My daughter, Rachel, is a registered nurse at the Scott and White Children's Hospital in Temple, Texas.  My son, Nicholas, will be a second semester sophomore at Texas A & M this Fall. Nick is currently an Engineering major but also likes sales. 
A love of learning is what I hope to help instill this year for my students. I hope to inspire each and every one of my students to work hard, to have faith in themselves, and to realize that education can be an amazingly gratifying personal journey.
It's going to be a great year!

Book analysis project is due 5-15-17. Students can create a poem, reader's theater to perform in class, a typical book analysis report, or an oral report presentation on a biographical character. 
Also, the Reading STAAR test is on May 9th. (the day after the Math STAAR). Please ensure your child is rested on these days! I appreciate all of your support this year. It's been a great year of learning and growing!

Homework

I assigned a Writing log today. This is to encourage students to write for 45 minutes per week. When students turn in two writing assignments (they are due on Tuesday), they will receive a Slushy! Always feel free to email me at cmelton@magnoliaisd.org should you have any questions!
