Hi 6th Grade Parents,

It was nice to meet many of you at last Wednesday’s Back to School Night.

Coming home on Tuesday will be your child’s first weekly progress report.  Please sign and return it by Wednesday.  You can also check your child’s grades on Renweb.  Please let me know if you are unable to do so.

Next week we will start our fall MAP testing on Tuesday the 24th.  We will then take the rest of the week off from testing and resume on Tuesday October 1st.  We will continue testing on October 2nd and 3rd.  If you would like to help provide a snack on one of the testing days please contact Kelli Walker.

We started our vocabulary lessons this week.  I am giving students two weeks to prepare in learning the definitions and spellings. We will have our test on Friday the 27th.  Due Wednesday is a list of the words with definitions and pictures.

In 6th math this week we have p. 10 #1-15 all due Tuesday.  Due Wednesday is an order of operations worksheet.  Pl 16 # 1-17 odd is due Thursday and we will have a rounding and estimating worksheet due Friday.

For 6th science we are working on Phases of the Moon models in class.

In social studies p. 43 questions are due Thursday.  We will be starting an Ancient Towns group project on that day.

Dear Parents:

This week we will finish “Mazy May” and apply the story to the Building Blocks of Fiction.  Students will learn all nine building blocks.  This will help them prepare for their book reviews.  There will be a comprehension test on “Mazy May” on Thursday.  Students are to draw a picture from the “Mazy May” story for homework tonight.  Also, expect to see your child reading for the book review at home.
