6th Grade Newsletter
This week, students have been busy writing Rebuttal Cards. I have been super impressed by the dedication of groups to master this difficult task. It is definitely higher thinking that requires them to anticipate what other sides will argue. For a hypothetical situation, students are doing really well.
Study Saturday, as of right now, is still on for Saturday, February 16th at 10 am at Barry School. If that changes due to weather, I will be sending out a mass email. Please check your email Saturday morning just in case.
Rebuttal Cards are due February 19th at the beginning of class next week! Next week, students will be practicing their actual debate and mastering the process before they go up against another 6th-grade group the following week.
On another note, Trolley Run Training begins March 4th (please see attachment). We will meet three days per week and run together in preparation for the race downtown April 28th. Please encourage your child to participate - it is a great experience and we have a lot of fun. Contact me if you have any questions.
We are continuing to work on independent and dependent variables, identifying the patterns they create and multiple representations.
Due to the snow days, the final Topic 4 Assessment will be moved to 2/20 (Wednesday). This will allow for all of us to catch up on the days we have missed and have a review on Tuesday 02/19.
Some students have been placed in a permanent study hall due to their low grades 1st semester. There has also been an additional FPC added called a Teacher's Assistant. They will be helping Early Childhood and the 5th Grade Specials in the building.
Please read your student's email to keep up to date with their FPC progress and their weekly schedules. If you did not receive an email from your student, please make sure they know your email so they can email you with important information.
