What's going on in class?
We have officially completed our first module in 6th grade!! Our week started with the final quiz of module one (everyone survived)! We will start module 2 next week, we will be covering fractions a large portion of this module. Before we begin module 2 we will have a few review days in order to better assess where students are excelling and areas in which they are struggling. There will be a quiz next week over fractions. Thanks so much for all of you support and working with your kiddos. Have a great weekend.
Next week students will be starting the novel Hatchet in Language Arts. Please continue to ask your student about their weekly reading interests. (Please remind your student Hatchet is not permitted for weekly reading log).
Nightly reading homework-
Studies have shown that reading just 20 minutes per day will expose students to over a million words per year. This will then likely improve school grades as well as increase state standardized test scores. Please check with your child be make sure they are doing their nightly reading homework and filling out the log that goes with it.
Students keep their Science Interactive Notebooks (INBs) in the classroom, but they are always welcome to take them home with them as long as they return the next day.
This week in social studies we worked on a research project about Ancient Egypt. Students were given the choice of 1 of 15 topics to research about Ancient Egypt. These topics included Cleopatra, the Pyramids, the Great Sphinx, Egyptian Mythology, and more. The students spent time researching and assembling their project beginning on Friday, October 18. On Thursday of this week, students began presenting their projects to the class. Next week we will continue to study Ancient Egypt and its impact on the modern world.
It was great to meet many of you at conferences and I hope you enjoy your 3 day weekend!
