PREVIEW NOTES.- Carnegie Learning Vol. 1 p. 524- 525 (7.3 ONLY)
*** Students are encouraged to write the notes in their sourcebook prior to class instruction, this will maximize instructional and independent practice time.
MGSE6.EE.1 Write and evaluate expressions involving whole-number exponents.
MGSE6.EE.2 Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers. MGSE6.EE.2a Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers. For example, express the calculation “Subtract y from 5” as 5-y. MGSE6.EE.2b Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity. For example, describe the expression 2(8 + 7) as a product of two factors; view (8 + 7) as both a single entity and a sum of two terms.
MGSE6.EE.2c Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations).
FOUNDATION MATH SKILLS: It is imperative that students have a strong understanding of the elementary math skills in order to be successful in 6th grade math. IXL is available for daily practice. The 6th grade math curriculum is rigorous and class time cannot be used for remediation of K-5 math concepts.

*I need parent volunteers who have access to copies to make copies for my classes of worksheets for homework and tests. Reading and Language Arts requires students to be able to review material and have extra practice at home and not all students have printer access. I will be uploading documents as well, but if you are able to provide this service or any others that you think would be beneficial for us, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Each week, Robust Vocabulary will be uploaded into Quizlet. We have vocabulary review in class each day, however, students should study and review their vocabulary on a nightly basis.
*Quizlet link for Robust Vocabulary: https://quizlet.com/join/mDXpxZx6c
1) Review the most current ELA lesson or any lesson that was presented during the week for at least 10 min. each night.
2) Review current week's Robust Vocabulary in preparation for vocabulary test each Friday.
3) Pizza Hut “Book It” Program: (Daily Reading and Writing)
Read for a minimum of 30 min. each night and write a 3-5 sentence summary of what they read...weekends included.
4) Read Theory: (Daily Reading and Comprehension Exercises)
Students should read at least 3 passages per night and complete at least 3 tests based on those passages.
Next week (11/16/15):
*Making My Writing Better: Students will examine previous writing samples and replace simple sentences with compound and complex sentences. Students will also use more vivid language and incorporate their Robust Vocabulary into their writing.
*Sentence Structure: Continued…More practice needed
· Parts of Sentences: Simple Subject, Simple Predicates, Complete Subjects, Complete Predicates
*Inferences and Implicit Knowledge (Context Clues)
ELAGSE6RI1: Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
ELAGSE6L3a.: Vary sentence patterns for meaning, reader/listener interest, and style (varying sentence patterns continues with added rigor throughout the standards).
