6th Grade News
6th grade Social Studies - Ms. Iversen’s classes
So far, Ms. Iversen’s social studies classes have covered memorizing the names of the continents and oceans, creating a compass rose, and learning the cardinal and intermediate directions.
They are now learning about the Power of 10 as it relates to starting at their own address and expanding that to the name of our galaxy. Therefore, they are learning about the names of our counties, neighboring states, bordering countries and their capitals, and more. It is important to know and understand the names of places near and far from us and where we are located in relation to the rest of the world.
After covering these facts about geography, we will begin learning about early man, including Neaderthal and Cro Magnon. The year is underway!
7th Grade news
7th grade math classes are moving up and down or left and right working with signed numbers! The students are making connections with positive and negative numbers and how to solve problems. We are excited to see the students working with each other to help with the learning process.
Ask your child about their favorite place that they presented in social studies class. The mono literacy blocks are moving on to a mini unit over mythology.
8th Grade News
Algebra students are busy exploring various types of functions while 8th grade math classes are "rigidly" learning about transformations of shapes! It has been a great start to the year working in partners and groups. The students have been working well with each other to make sure they are understanding the concept of transformations.
