Welcome to Mr. Cintron's 6th grade Language Arts class. I am so excited to see you all and I know you are also excited to be in the exciting, energetic Carteret Middle School. Sixth grade is a year in which you will have higher expectations and more responsibilities. We will be exploring new and interesting novels and we will be reading a combination of fiction and nonfiction passages. Also, we will be following the writers and reading workshop model for reading and writing. We will use a combination of lectures, student discourse, individual student meetings, and technology instruction to engage students in the classroom environment. Be ready to have a great year!!!!!
