Sixth Grade Reading
Montgomery Junior High
Caesar's English is part of the vocabulary curriculum at MISD in 6th-8th grade.
Through this program, students will understand how words are constructed from Latin word stems. As they learn the stem meanings, they will begin to apply this knowledge to whole word meanings. Students will also learn the meanings of some high frequency words often used in literature or content area text.
Caesar's English is a cumulative vocabulary curriculum. For homework, students need to learn the 5 new words or word stems presented each week as well as review all of the previous words/stems. Students will test every Thursday over the FIVE new words/stems and SOME of the previous words/stems.
All students can now access a link to Quizlet that has all words we've studied to this point. There are various activities they can complete in preparation for the weekly Quiz.
The websites listed below provide additional practice and support state standards Sixth Grade students are expected to master this school year.
Quizlet is a good resource you can use to help your child study Caesar's English, vocabulary, etc. prior to taking quizzes or tests. You can create an account and use it as a study tool for most assignments in a variety of content areas.

Late Work Policy
It is very important to complete and turn in assignments on time.
Late work will have a 10 point deduction per day until the assignment is completed and turned in or an assignment is 10 days late, resulting in a zero. Assignments 10+ days late are not eligible to be completed to replace the zero.
1. Students will be able to retest on Tests with the opportunity to earn up to a 70 on the retest. (Unless otherwise decided upon by the 6th grade ELAR team.)
2. Students have a window of 5 days after the grade is posted to request a retest.
3. A tutorial MUST be completed prior to a student being able to retest.
4. The retest policy does not include:
Final grades for each grading period will be posted by the Monday following the end of the six weeks.
For example, the first six weeks grading period ends on Friday, September 28th. Final grades will be entered by 2:00 pm Monday, October 1st.
Regular school attendance is essential for a student to make the most of his or her education—
to benefit from teacher-led and school activities, to build each day’s learning on the previous
day’s, and to grow as an individual. Absences from class may result in serious disruption of a
student’s mastery of the instructional materials; therefore, the student and parent should make
every effort to avoid unnecessary absences.
Incomplete work: If a student has not completed assigned work for a six-week grading period
because of absences or other extenuating circumstances, a grade of "I" shall be recorded pending
the completion of the work. Unless special arrangements are made with the student's teacher,
the student will have two (2) weeks after the end of the six-weeks to complete work to resolve
an "I" grade. If the work is not completed during that two-week period, the "I" will be recorded
as a "0" and the student's grade will be averaged.
Following an absence, students have 1 day to make-up missed work per day they were absent. For example, if a student is absent on Monday and returns to school on Tuesday, the work they missed on Monday is due Wednesday.
Classroom Procedure: Students in 6th Grade are expected to check the "Absent File" to collect the assignments they missed. Additionally, students should bring the work from the bucket to the teacher for any questions and to ask if there is additional work to complete.
