Wanted: ELA INFO

We are finishing up our Civil War research project. We are learning how to be good presenters as well as good audience member. We have finished up our study of homophones that trick us as we write. We will spend the last two weeks of school in literature circles improving our skills reading, thinking deeply about, and discussing books in small groups.


"Dinner Table Talk"

*READ, READ, READ over the summer!

Wanted: Science Info

We will continue our focus on the history of science.


We will continue researching major scientists who have made significant contributions to science.

Wanted: Social Studies Info

We will begin our new unit over America in the 20th Century. We will discuss about how Americans debated issues of isolation and involvement in world affairs during World War I and into the modern era. We will also learn about how during the Great Depression, Americans struggled to survive a collapsed economy and an environmental crisis.

Wanted: Math Info

This week we are wrapping up our Mode, Range, Mean and Median unit. The students have enjoyed being able to accomplish 6th grade math!!


Next week, we will move into integers. While they have learned positive numbers, they have never been introduced to negative numbers. Classifying numbers as positive and negative will be introduced on a number line, thermometer, and coordinate grids.


The last week of school will focus on measurement. We will be making Metric Monsters and students will need to use precise measuring to complete the task.


"Dinner Table Talk"

Think Through Math is a valuable summer math tool. It will be very helpful for students to spend a few minutes each week reviewing 5th grade concepts. This will make for a smoother transition into 6th grade math.
