* We Play, We Learn, We Grow Together *

First Day(s) of School

So many students and teachers will big smiles under their masks on the first two days of schools. While both were feeling nervous and anxious about the changes in what we would normally be doing on the first days, everyone seemed to get through the day feeling excited for the school year. Kids were super polite, respectful to adults, and participated enthusiastically. It was a great start and all 6th grade teachers are so happy to have such a nice group of kids.

Schedule for Friday 8/21 to Friday 8/28

Subject Update - Language Arts

Welcome to 6th grade ELA! This week and next, we are working on getting to know each other, signing in to tech tools, and getting to know each other as readers and writers. We will be getting some writing samples from students as well as discussing reading expectations and setting goals.

Subject Update - Math

We worked on getting kids into Google Classroom, building our learning culture, and helping students (and hopefully parents) navigate the MORE confusing world of 6th grade! We are off to a great start! We get to tip our toes into Unit 1 (Yess!l #MathGeeksUnite!). This weekend, take a few minutes to explore our book and some of the online sources. Google Classroom, the Online version of our Resource, Illustrative Math.FIND the Workbook Scavenger Hunt!. If you are using a 7th grade book, the scavenger hunt will (mostly) work too!!

Subject Update - Science

Science will exploring the role of scientists, learning about laboratory safety, and getting to know their classmates! We will also be introducing our first unit, Body Systems.

Subject Update - Social Studies

We started off the school year with some get to know you activities. Many classes participated in a Class is Lava game where they answered questions and pretended that the floor is lava. To start off academically, we're going to have the students participate in a series of activities designed to get students to think like historians by making inferences about artifacts and using evidence and reasoning to explain their rationale.

Organizing Supplies - Core Classes

Students need the following in nearly every class:

1. Pencil Case with pens, pencils, scissors, colored pencils, earbuds, and highlighters.

2. Chromebook- **Charged at home**Super important because there are not enough outlets in the classroom

3. Planner. This is a great tool to keep work assignments and video conferencing times organized

4. Folders. Labeled folders (math, science, social studies, and language arts). Many kids found a home for these four folders in a trapper or a binder. It would be helpful if at home, parents could help students put their names and subject names on each folder.

Questions, Concerns, Things You Want Us to Know??

This year, students will be challenged to grow in many ways and if they are willing to work hard, you will love the direction that this journey will take. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions. Emails, phone numbers, and agendas are all published in the 6th grade Hub linked below
