Please make sure your 6th Grader:

    • Responds to the Google form their Advisory teacher included in the newsletter. (REQUIRED: Weekly Check-In)

    • Check email and Google Classroom daily

Please encourage your 6th Grader to do the following in their Google Classroom:

ELA

Students should be reading 30 or more minutes every day!


This is the most important work they can do while they are at home. To make the next few weeks easier on everyone, we are going to be assigning Scholastic Work At Home. This will give work for students to do each day that will require them to read and write. This week they will be working on Day 6-10.

Math

We have 3 videos with Google Forms again this week. This week we are starting Unit 6: Expressions and Equations. This is the unit that we were working on right before we had to leave. We will look at writing expressions and equations from stories, solving these equations, and looking at what the solution to the equation means in the story. Then, we will be looking closer at exponents. We talked about this briefly before we left, so if you need extra help with this topic, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.


Don't forget to check your Google Classroom everyday! If you want notifications on when videos are posted, you can subscribe to Ms. Grant's YouTube Channel! https://bit.ly/2VbY8rQ

Social Studies

Continue with the Review and Enrichment choice activities. Slides 2-7 are for review and slides 8-11 are for enrichment. Enrichment suggestions can be done with various historical topics and people of the student’s choice. Review work should be attempted if a student has a 1 or 2 on a topic to “level up” on the standard or just because the student wants to explore beyond what was taught in class. Students should communicate what they are working on with their teacher via Google Classroom private comment or an email. Students should cite their research sources and make sure they either summarize what they learned or paraphrase the author’s information so they don’t get in the habit of plagiarizing others' work.
