What's going on in class?
Congrats your students have completed their first 9 weeks of middle school!! Along with finishing the 9 weeks they are very close to finishing the first module (unit) in 6th grade Math. Next week will begin interim testing for Math please make sure all students have their computers charged up! I have been proud of the transition the students have made this year. I am looking forward to another successful 9 weeks!! Have a great weekend!
Interim testing will begin next week in Language Arts. Please make sure ALL students bring their computers CHARGED and ready to go on Tuesday.
Nightly reading homework-
Studies have shown that reading just 20 minutes per day will expose students to over a million words per year. This will then likely improve school grades as well as increase state standardized test scores. Please check with your child be make sure they are doing their nightly reading homework and filling out the log that goes with it.
Next week we will begin our Earth Science unit, so students will be bringing home their Water and the Atmosphere text books. Those should be kept at home and they will be issued new books for the next unit.
It’s hard to believe 9 weeks has already gone by! This week in social studies we continued learning about Ancient Egypt. We focused on the Geography of Egypt and the unification of the Upper and Lower Kingdoms of Egypt. Next week we will continue to learn about Ancient Egypt with a focus on the Pharaohs of Egypt and the mythology of Egypt. Grades for the first 9 weeks will be official next week. Have a great weekend!
