Language Arts

Welcome to Mrs. Pixley's 6th Grade Language Arts!

Welcome to my page!  I hope that you are staying healthy and doing a little reading and/or writing each day!  Soon, you will be receiving optional work from each core class, for each day of the week.  This work will not be graded, and I don't expect it to be sent to me.  In the mean time, or in case boredom sets in, you can try the following learning sites:


1. PWCS has a Home Learning page of resources here

2.  Scholastic also created an amazing at-home learning page that you can access here.

3. Visit IXL here and sign in using your lunch number.  Go to 6th Grade Language Arts and pick any of the starred items to practice skills we have learned this year.

-I will be using Teams through MS 
Office 365 for notes and worksheets instead of posting on this web page.  (Notes and PowerPoints for skills already taught this year will be in the left menu under files and documents.) 
-Students can access this on the 
Nokesville Symbaloo with their login and password. The student login is the first six letters of the last name, first initial, middle initial, 26@pwcs-edu.org and the same password they use for computer logins.
-Copies of work that is posted each week will be in Teams-Files for Mrs. Pixley's Language Arts Class-Files-and the date for that week, and files will be sent over email daily.

-If you have any questions, please contact me: pixleyja@pwcs.edu
