About Hannah Thomas:

Welcome to Mrs. Thomas' sixth grade English Language Arts (ELA) and Enrichment classes! 
 
A bit about me: 
I love words and the study of language arts! My husband and I live in OKC and we enjoy learning, exercising, and exploring OKC and the world. 
 
2019/2020 School Year Outlook:
I am excited to teach sixth grade ELA classes as well as an enrichment class this year and am looking forward to learning with your students and helping them cultivate their English Language Arts skills.
 
Contact Information:
It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to teach your student! So please let me know if I can do anything to improve your family's experience at Horizon Intermediate or in my classroom. 
You can contact me through my email: thomash@mustangps.org, or by calling Horizon Intermediate at: (405)256-6282. 
 
Thank you for entrusting your student to my care and direction. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!

Distance Learning Update:

I miss seeing each of your wonderful student's faces each day!

Some Important Information: 

I have created a Google classroom for my each of my core classes, and will post a recording of a weekly class meeting with my homeroom. At that time, I will present the district's ELA lessons for the week and ask for any questions you/your students may have. 
I have invited each of your students to join my class. Please have them respond to my invitation (they will use their Horizon student account information).

As the district has notified you, no assignments are mandatory during the coming weeks, but are advised. Our goal is to offer as much support and help as we can to everyone during the coming weeks. 
Please also note that no grades will be taken during the fourth quarter. Your student's third quarter grades will be copied and pasted. Should you like for your student to receive an opportunity to make-up something from last quarter for a better grade (if the previous grade was under a 70%), you will need to contact me about the particular assignment, and I can offer an opportunity for more points. Additionally, if your student received an overall grade below a 70 last semester, you may contact me to ask for extra-credit opportunities, and I will also supply such an opportunity. 

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email me or call or text the following number: (405) 309-9483. 

 

I will post lesson plans on my Google calendar. You can access my class calendar through the link below.

During the week of September 16 through 20, 2019, we will read "Thank you, M'am" by Langston Hughes to analyze internal vs. external conflict. We will discuss point of view, internal and external conflict, protagonist and antagonist, and characterization. 

As a guide to designing our own characters, we will watch videos from the creators of Pixar films. I have provided the link to the website on which they are available below.
