SPLENDID IN 6TH
What's Up in O'Connell/Vanderwaal' s Class Week Aug. 22-26th
Greetings from Social Studies!
Can you believe the school year has begun? We've had an awesome start to the week and Ms. V and myself are enjoying getting to know our students. This week we are focusing on the typical get to know you activities, and learning the norms for TURN and Talks and groups work scenarios.
This newsletter is chalk full of information! I do my best to send one each week with the topics we are covering, class work, and if necessary homework for the week.
In general, students will only have homework if they do not finish class work, (brain book pages in class), or have research questions, project tweaking to do etc.
HAPPY FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL!

WHAT IS A BRAIN BOOK??
It is essential that they REMEMBER to bring it back the following day, so they do not get behind.
Sixth graders are new to note taking, so I make it my mission to teach many ways to take notes throughout our units. Their brain books hold information they will use to create meaningful projects to show their mastery of content standards.
See pictures below of BRAIN BOOKS
IPAD ROLL OUT IS TONIGHT 4-6pm
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CANVAS & INFINITE CAMPUS??
Infinite Campus is where you look for your students Assignment Grades, FINAL Grades, schedules, and attendance.
