• 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!!!!!
