W.6.4. Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization and style are appropriate for the assignment. W. 6.10 Write routinely for extended periods of time. Students will do various assignments throughout the year, some will be on a computer and some will be on paper. The assignments will be teacher guided and some may have to be hand over hand. The goal is to bring their confidence level up on activities they can do independently with as little help as necessary. My class covers an extreme amount of patience and time.

We also discuss community helpers and how to follow a recipe when making a snack or dessert. Math skills/ We will be working on calculator skills, adding subtracting, multiplying and division. We will work on learning money and using a calculator to assist in daily living.
Math Core Standards: Standard 6.RP. 2, 6RP. 3c., 6 NS2 and 3. We will have teacher guided activities this way the teacher can model and students can have a guide to follow. We are currently studying the seasons and appropriate weather for the seasons and what type of clothes to wear.
The students will continue to study Daily Living Skills, Writing, English, and Math as well as Science, and American History. The essential questions for my class would be: Without help tell me what your name address and phone number is who are your parents/guardians? What are the days, months of the year and what year is it? What clothes do you wear in different types of weather? What city do you live in, What State do you live in?
