Study Notes

English Practice for Grade 6 Students

As your child prepares for the next year of school, it's important they continue practicing their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Here we focus on some specific areas of improvement for students entering grade six:

Reading Comprehension Skills

In grade six, children start learning how to analyze texts more deeply. They can summarize what is happening in a story, find evidence from the text, recognize themes, predict outcomes, draw conclusions, make connections, and think critically. To help them improve these skills, you might ask questions like: What do you think will happen next? How did this character feel? Why does she act this way? Can you give evidence to support your opinion? These questions encourage critical thinking and deeper understanding of the material.

Using Will in Sentences

Children learn new verbs every day. One verb that becomes very common during grade six is 'will'. For example, instead of saying, I want ice cream after my homework, a student would say I will have ice cream after my homework when they know they will get ice cream. This change indicates progress in spoken and written communication. As parents, you could reinforce this by pointing out examples of using will properly and encouraging your child to notice when others use it correctly too.

Holidays are often associated with special occasions, celebrations, traditions, family gatherings, cooking food, decorating houses, presents, parties, music, parades, fireworks, etc.. Teaching vocabulary relevant to seasonal events helps broaden the vocabulary base which also improves overall grammar and vocabulary knowledge. For instance, you can teach terms such as Christmas tree, Thanksgiving turkey, Halloween pumpkin, New Year's resolution, Easter egg, etc., all important holiday concepts.

Forming Sentences with Be Going To

Be going to expresses future intent in simple declarative sentences such as "I am going home," "She is going shopping," "He is going to the party." When used properly, the phrase conveys certainty about plans made well ahead of time. Encourage your child to pay attention to its usage in daily conversation while helping them form correct sentences themselves, eventually making proper use of be going to come naturally.

By working on these specific aspects of language development, grade six students can better prepare for higher levels of academic work in middle school.
