From the Nest
Mr. Anderson - Language Arts
Ms. Bosse - Math
Tuesday is the SOL. On Monday we'll be reviewing the Customary and Metric measurement systems. Students should spend some time over the weekend looking through their Interactive Notebooks as well as spending some time on iXL. I know all students will give it their all! We will be doing projects in Regular 6 following the SOL, and in 6 Extended we will be learning the 7th grade standards that we had to move aside because of the snow days!
Mr. Cardone - Science
Outside of the Social Studies test, next week will be all about Science, specifically weather. Students will be learning about the following topics: Earth’s energy budget and the distribution of thermal energy, cloud formation, and basic weather information. There will be a couple of quizzes next week so check school fusion and your children’s agenda for further information. Test corrections for the Watershed test are also due on Wednesday 3/18.
Reading: May 9 in the AM (DONE!)
Math: May 17, in the AM
In Sixth Grade, students will be tested in Math and Reading. Students have already started reviewing, and each subject area will continue to assign review materials as needed. In the mean time, please consider the following quick tips:
- Mark SOL dates on your family calendar, and mention them to your child at home.
- Demonstrate a positive attitude about the tests with your child.
- Encourage your child to stay relaxed and calm during tests, and practice ways to stay calm if they have had anxiety in the past.
- Get enough sleep, and eat a good breakfast before an SOL test.
