6th Grade Superstar Weekly
September 19, 2016 | Week 5| Trimester 1
Classroom Expectations - Group Work
Over the course of the year, our students will continue to practice being effective teammates who are efficient and productive. We will learn what it means to contribute and how to problem solve when a teammate is not contributing or pulling his/her own weight.
As teachers, we recognized the anxiety and stress that working in teams can cause for some students, and we will do our best to support these students in their development. We believe that it is essential to build collaboration and teamwork skills now, as this will help students not only through their school days, but in their personal and professional lives. As a class we will continue to recognize the positive outcomes of working collaboratively as a team, as well as problem-solve the challenges of teamwork.
Please continue to support your child's development by recognizing that it can be challenging at times to work with others, but also emphasizing the power of collaboration and teamwork. Together we can achieve so much more!
Our First FUN FRIDAY of the Year!
Weekly Work Grid
Due to some construction on site this week, we took our Reader's Workshop out to the grass! Many of the students enjoyed reading out in the afternoon shade.
Be on the lookout for more info to come about our FIRST Publishing Party on Monday, October 3rd! This is a time where our students publish their piece of writing and share it with family and friends. Due to the amount of time and effort our students are putting into their writing, it is going to be a great celebration!
Science and Social Studies Rundown
This week in science, students will be doing some engineering tasks that are separate from our Environmental Detective Unit. These engineering tasks are not only part of the new Next Generation Science Standards, but will also give students an opportunity to work on group work and collaboration.
