This week, we have completed Topic 12 and started Topic 13: Solving Proportions. Students continue to enjoy pointing out mistakes when we practice "My Favorite No!" Students will continue to gain essential understanding when fixing problems they got wrong. Next week, we will continue working on Topic 13. Students are aware that there is a quiz after every two lessons. Please review a little bit each night with your 6th grader for a little practice with an adult can be reassuring and beneficial!
We discovered Canada's climate, land use, and natural resources. We watched interesting United Streaming Videos to enhance visual representation of Canada's landscape and resources. Ask your 6th grader, what natural resource is Canada known best for! Next week, we will finish sec. 3 and start reviewing for the Ch. 1 Test on Friday, March 6th.
We did it! We finished Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry! We focused on plot, and original sentences. Next week, we will be taking the Test and watching the movie! We will also be comparing and contrasting the movie with the novel.
Students received their two Monthly Reading Logs for the month of March. One is an "At Home Reading Log." Students need to complete and fill out the log after reading 20 minutes everyday. The same rule applies for their "At School Reading Log." They are responsible for filling this out after IDR/Daily 4 time in class. Both are DUE on Wednesday, April 1st with a parent signature. They are also available on my teacher webpage for your reference. We have built better stamina time coming back from break and we are continuing to build on top of that time every day!
Make sure your child is also completing the yellow Reading Log Challenge for March is Reading Month! They will have a chance to surprise Mr. Steinhaus!
