Homework Link

Here is a link to Purple House Homework! Students are still expected to fill out their assignment notebooks. This HW link is "just in case." We will do our best to keep it updated but as you know, "life" happens and we may not get to it in time or be absent. That is why it is still important for the students to fill out their homework each day. CLICK HERE

Homework Club

Homework Club is every Monday & Wednesday! It is a great opportunity for your child to work on homework from 2:45-4 PM. Sign up is in office. Late buses are provided!

Core Class Updates

Language Arts

Currently our focus for reader's workshop is character analysis. Please remind your child to read every night! In writer's workshop, students are learning how to write literary essays. Book Clubs will begin after Thanksgiving.

Math

Many assignments are online "Big Ideas"


Math 6: Finished fractions and on to decimals.


Math 7: Working on the topic of Expressions & Equations

Science

Many students are coming to class unprepared. Please double check with your child that they have a pencil case with the needed items (pencils, red pens, highlighters). Also, all students need to have headphones. The Weather unit will be concluded by the end of November and our next unit will be Magnetism.

Social Studies

Students in social studies have been exploring the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia. The Mesopotamia final unit test is coming up soon, so please keep an eye out for the study guide within the next week. Our next unit will take us to Ancient Egypt. As always, please feel free to share anything from home you may have through your travels that ties to our curriculum.

Having fun in 6th grade!
