Hi 6th Grade Parents,
After finding our that we have Mass on February 15th, I have changed our Wax Museum to February 14th. It will be “open” from 9:00-10:30. I hope you will be able to stop by!
Friday is a half day because of teacher Inservice in the afternoon.
Progress reports will come out Tuesday. They are due back signed on Wednesday.
There is a pair of binoculars in the classroom if anyone is missing a pair.
In social studies on Friday we picked our person for the Wax Museum. This week we are doing research and taking notes (see attachment) on our person. I would like students to use at least one website and one text (book or encyclopedia). This is due on Friday.
For science this week we have re-designed our rockets based on flight testing we did on Friday. Students are then building a second rocket which we will fly on Thursday or Friday, weather permitting.
There is no spelling or vocabulary this week. Writing for the next few weeks will be our Wax Museum papers.
In 6th math we have our chapter 3 test tomorrow. Students our working on the practice test on p. 122 for homework tonight.
This week we will finish “Don Quixote” and have a test on Wednesday. We are practicing using context clues to determine the meaning of words. Expect to see your child reading for the book review at home.
Sixth grade is reviewing and learning about verbs. This week they will learn about linking verbs. They will receive a review packet on Wednesday and have a final test on action, state of being, helping and linking verbs on Thursday.
