Welcome to 6th Grade Language Arts!
About me... My name is Wendy Falcone. This is my 6th year teaching 6th grade Language Arts in Tomball ISD and I love it here! I graduated from the University of Texas with a BA in Elementary Education and I feel blessed that I have found my calling in life. When I'm not at school, I enjoy cooking, shopping, reading, traveling, and just hanging out with friends and family.
I have been married to my amazing husband for 25 years and we have three wonderful children. Nick attends Baylor University, Christian attends the University of Mary Hardin Baylor, and Julianna is a freshman at Oklahoma State University. The years have flown by as we've watched our kids grow up in the wonderful community of Tomball.
I absolutely adore teaching 6th grade! My classroom is full of reading, writing, technology, small group activities, discussion, fun, and lots of laughing!  I strive to build a strong, positive relationship with every one of my students. I have high expectations for my students. I want students to be respectful, come to class prepared, take ownership of their learning, and do their BEST! I am looking forward to working with your child to help them reach their highest potential.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to help!

Walk Two Moons Vocabulary Ch 1-11

Hello Parents, 
 
Our first vocabulary quiz will be this Tuesday, Oct. 10. The students must be able to choose the vocabulary word that best fits into an authentic sentence; therefore memorizing definitions will not be enough to achieve success. Students should practice using the words properly in sentences. We will be creating a study guide this week in class to help them learn the words however the students are responsible for studying the words at home. The quiz will be a daily grade this grading period. Thank you for your support at home!
 

Six Signposts Presentation

Hello parents! I would like to give a big shout-out to all of the parents who were able to make it to the Parent Orientation on Tuesday! I really enjoyed meeting all of you, and I am excited about teaching your child this year! If you were unable to make it, I sent a pink brochure home with your child in their Wednesday folders highlighting some important dates and contact information. Please feel free to contact at anytime if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to partnering with you this year to ensure your child's success!
 
I have attached a file outlining the Notice and Note: Six Signposts reading strategies that I touched on at the Parent Orientation. Please use this as your road map for questioning your child about his/her reading. Remember to encourage your child to read every night! The only way to become a better reader is to read, read, read!
