Grade 6 Language Arts Worksheets

At this grade level students begin to perfect all aspects of information output and input. Listening takes center stage in many different ways in this grade level. Locking down more difficult vocabulary is a must here. Sixth grade students have one of the most significant jumps in reader level. Students are expected to see an explosion of language growth over the course of this school year. There are many concepts that first appear in the 6th grade language arts curriculum. 6th graders are making a bit of leap into unknown territory. Rather than reading into inferences, we expect students at this level to make their own inferences and back them up with a traceable and well documented argument. Where before we were looking for students to state their opinions at the 6th grade level we want to only hear validated facts.
