Room 1219 Newsletter
We have completed units in math, spelling, and vocabulary. We are still in the middle of our first science chapter, but we have taken a quiz. And, our next reading comprehension test is soon. Please see below for more information about our curriculum updates.
Daily reading practice is an extremely important daily homework assignment. Your sixth grader should be reading 30 minutes per night. Having access to books is an important part of this homework. Your child can find great books for free at the public library, and we visit the Verdugo Woodlands library on Fridays. Another great resource for reading books is the Scholastic book orders.
Today I am sending home a set of book orders. Please feel free to order from the paper book orders or use the website to order online. More titles are available online! Directions to order online are in the Thursday folder and on the homework website. All book orders, paper and online, are due September 27, 2012.
