The classroom website has been password protected once again. The password is the same as it was in the past.
We are very excited to announce that we have been asked to present to the School Board about Mathematics teaching and learning in sixth grade at LCE and in our classroom. I am very proud to represent the great things our students are doing in the classroom in a presentation! Your students have been working very hard!
We will continue our Unit on Earth`s Energy as we progress into learning about sound and light waves and the power of convection currents.
Collaboration Day Update
Sixth grade math teachers reviewed currently piloted math programs to ensure the instructional materials are aligned and provide adequate preparedness for both district-wide Quarter 2 Benchmark and Smarter Balanced Assessments. Subsequently, teachers compiled test-readiness materials for students in preparation for upcoming assessments. In addition, sixth grade science teachers created a cross-curricular research project for third quarter, as well as hands-on inquiry-based lab explorations to support the current science unit.
