### Student created, teacher approved

In reading we are learning about cause and affect. We are learning that without the cause there is no way for the affect to happen. We are also learning about the Plot Diagram it teaches us to really think about the stories that we read and how to write them.

Ps. There is a test on Tuesday.

## Wonderful Writing

## Little League Baseball Project

This year students will have the opportunity to do an exciting project focused around the "Little League Baseball World Series." Students learn about the different teams and the regions where they practice. Students then use the maps to identify the teams. This project will help your child learn about the states and the importance of citizenship, sportsmanship, and after school activities.

## Super Duper Science

During this unit, we have been working on our variables. A variable is something that can change the outcome of an experiment. There are three things we have tested our variables on so far: Pendulums, Life Boats, and Catapults. A pendulum is a weight suspended from an object so it can swing back and forth. A life boat is a boat that can hold multiple passengers. A catapult is used to launch a projectile into the air.

## Marvelous Math

This year in 6th grade math your child is working on ratios and how they are related. We are using multiplication to solve these problems.

In the home work problem to do a division problem, a story problem, and they have to have an answer for those problems.
