Welcome to Mr. Mmike5150's Language Arts/Grammar Page

This section will concentrate on assisting 6th grade ELL students with different aspects of grammar. Grammar is a difficult concept for even the best native English speaking students (and adults!). So when you give an assignment on topics like homophones or adjectives, it is no wonder why our ELL students struggle. The final project in this grammar lesson will be for you to complete a digital story showing your understanding of different types of adjectives...more specifically, comparative and superlative forms of adjectives.



This page contains a WebQuest which will assist students in an honors level ELL 6th grade Language Arts class in mastering different aspects of grammar. Remember, the final project in this unit will be to create a digital story showing your understanding of comparative and superlative adjectives.
