Sixth Grade Word Study

Sixth grade marks the beginning of students middle school academic career. In sixth grade, students encounter more complex literature and informational text. The sixth grade curriculum focuses on developing academic and domain-specific vocabulary. Our Word Study Playlists are designed for easy vocabulary practice and easy sight words practice for students at every learning level.

Sixth grade students are expected to:

  • Read and comprehend literature, including stories, dramas, and poems
  • Interpret figures of speech in context
  • Determine the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases

By the end of the year, sixth graders should be able to use grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots to determine the meaning of a word, read text with purpose and understanding, and demonstrate an understanding of figurative language.
