6th Grade AIG Lion Team
Week of November 30th - December 4th
This week in reading class, the students got a new set of Blendspace centers, but this week it was a little bit different. The centers consisted of 20 minutes of i-Ready, work on Stems, 20 minutes of read to self, week 11 Studies Weekly, point of view task cards, a video on point of view, a new writing prompt about a day of class from a teacher’s point of view, and a new word collector. Our focus this week was Point of View. We learned a new third person POV-objective. We did a group activity writing about a picture from 4 different POV's. Last week we had a visit from Mr. Collier. He, along with 7 other business men from Charlotte, climbed to the summit of Mt. Rainier. He told us of his experience and answered all of our questions. We also visited our reading buddies at Rocky River Elementary and read with them. We made crafts with them as well.
This week in math, the students finished the standard G.3, and started standards 6.RP.1 (Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities.), 6.RP.2 (Understand the concept of a unit rate a/b associated with a ratio a:b with b ≠ 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship.), and 6.RP.3 (Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.).
This week in science class, the students did an “Atom’s Family" project were they had to pick one of the element families and write a story about that family. Then, they had to make a portrait of that family. The next thing they had to do was an “Adopt an Element” project. They had to chose an element that was in the family that they did the first project on, and do research on that element. The had to find things like what the symbol, atomic mass, and atomic number are. They also had to find out some facts about their element and more about the history of it. This project is due on Tuesday, December 8th.
