What We're Learning in 6th Grade Language Arts
Based on the absolute craziness of last week's schedule, we have decided to stick with this week's story and spelling list for these next four days. I will be giving students another try at the following assignments from last week's (very) difficult spelling list: spelling bubble quiz, pretest, and Friday test. I'm telling you, these words are hard. I've assured them that I, at their age, would have never been able to spell such words as "kaleidoscope" and "fluorescent"! Thank goodness these are challenge words and result in the accumulation of bonus points only.
MCS's first-ever Fitness Friday was a smashing success despite the sweltering heat. I even got some much-needed walking in with my 6th graders. Thank you to all of the adult volunteers who assisted with this day.
