Whether you are a teacher or substitute teacher for the 6th grade level, you have come to the right place. These worksheets offer a very general approach to practicing all the common skills that students in grade 6 are expected to have a good handle on by the end of the year. Yes, there is a few pieces that can be considered busy work, but they all have a solid approach to developing and accepting new skills. At the grade 6 level I would say the most important language arts skills that are introduce in this grade would include being able to compare stories and poems, understanding the concept of support ideas for facts, using different sources, understand figurative language, and starting off with presentations that are logical and easy to follow. By grade 6 students have their basic operations down pat and are starting to approach fundamental forms of algebra. The key math skills that are introduced at this level include comparing decimals and fractions, solving word problems that involve one of those two, creating graphs to model data, and the concept of volume is explored as well.
The following worksheets can be left for a substitute teacher if you have to be out of the classroom for a day or more. Each sheet has an activity that fits within the Sixth Grade curriculum, including subjects such as math, language skills, writing practice, calculating perimeters, reading comprehension, and more. These worksheets can also be used as part of a standard lesson plan, extra credit work, quiet time activities, and more. Please note that in some cases, answer keys have been provided. These must be printed separately, as they are not included with the main page.
