Level 6 English Grammar & Writing Mechanics
Summer Solutions 6th Grade English Grammar & Writing Mechanics is for students entering 7th Grade. Without ongoing practice, literacy skills lag over the summer break. However, students can bridge the summer learning gap with 6th Grade Grammar. All educational standards require children leaving Grade 6 to demonstrate command of English grammar and usage, use correct capitalization, punctuation, and spelling, vary sentence patterns in writing, understand figurative language, and acquire grade-appropriate academic vocabulary. Using the summer workbook, students complete 30 lessons of mixed review over a 10-week period, and this ongoing practice ensures retention of all the language arts concepts covered in sixth grade. Additional skills in the workbook include recognizing and using Greek and Latin roots to increase vocabulary, solving analogies, identifying cause and effect, distinguishing fact from opinion, and using charts and tables. The workbooks also weave in all of the other skills from the previous levels. By completing just one lesson three days a week, students enter seventh grade ready to begin learning new material right away. These summer workbooks include Help Pages and a complete answer key.
