Welcome to Mrs. Seibert's Class

MY FAMILY
Welcome to 6th grade ELA! I am so excited to have all of you in my class this year. I have been teaching on and off for 19 years now.  I took some time off to stay home with my 5 children. I started teaching middle school Spanish in Edmond 20 years ago.  I taught a few years and then stayed home. Then I went back and taught preschool for 5 years.  I subbed for a year in Mustang and went back to the classroom full time 2 years ago at Canyon Ridge. This year I was blessed with the opportunity to open Meadow Brook!  I couldn't ask for a better group of administrators, colleagues and students! I recently got married this summer so my family grew by two. Jimmy is my husband and I have a new step daughter. My name is now Mrs. Seibert. The email and website will stay Northcutt until I can get my paperwork changed! Sorry for the confusion.
 
Here is the class syllabus for the 2018-2019 school year. 
 
 

Welcome to 6th grade ELA!

 

                                                            WE HAVE GRIT!!!! 


We are going to be busy this year, and there are just a few things that you will need to know. We will be covering curriculum in the areas of literature and English. In literature we will be reading several classroom novels as well as selections from the grade appropriate textbook. We will also experience a variety of genres in print and other media. My goals for you this year are to increase your fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and critical thinking skills, but most of all I hope you develop a lifelong love of reading and learning!! The English curriculum will cover both grammar and writing. I will be using a variety of activities to build confidence and knowledge of how to write in narrative, informative, and opinion formats. While learning about and using the different writing formats we will also be practicing the use of proper grammar and mechanics.


Materials needed daily:

  1. Pencils

  2. Independent Reading Material

  3. Composition Notebook

  4. Classroom Folder

  5. Binder


Procedures when entering the classroom:

  1. You should get a drink or use the restroom before entering the classroom.

  2. Once you enter the classroom go directly to your seat and take out daily supplies.

  3. Begin independent reading.

 

Independent Reading:

40 Book Challenge (some graded assignments will come from your independent reading material) The 40 Book Challenge is an on-going challenge for the year. I will be participating in the challenge along with you. Also, if you meet the challenge by the year’s end you will receive the “Ultimate Bookworm Award”. The challenge requirement highlights are to read 40 books touching each genre.

You may check out independent reading books from the MBI Library, my classroom library, or the public library. You are expected to read at least 20 minutes 4 out of 7 evenings from your independent reading material. You will be given the opportunity to visit the library and work in class on independent reading assignments.


When checking your grade, your parent(s) can use the following scale:

A=100-90; B=89-80; C=79-70; D=69-60; F=59-0


Each week I post my lesson plans on my webpage located on the Meadow Brook Intermediate School website. This is for times of absence or to look ahead at the week to see what is coming up. Your parent(s) can contact me by email at northcutta@mustangps.org or by phone at 405-256-5250. Please leave a message on my voicemail. 


Donations! I would love any donations of books for my classroom library. They can be new or gently used. Thanks so much for your support!!
