Welcome to Sixth Grade
October 16, 2016
Hi 6th Grade Parents,
It looks like we actually have a week that sticks to our regular schedule!
Thank you to everyone for finding book covers.
I didn’t get my permission slips for STEM Club out last week- they will come home this week. We will start meeting on Tuesdays after school next week.
Also coming home this week will be IXL passwords and user names for 6th math. Your child will have access to this web site to work on any math skills you think they need to spend extra time on.
For homework in 6th math we have p. 34 # 19- 24 due on Tuesday. Due Wednesday is p. 36 # 1-6 and p. 37-38 # 1-8. We will be taking two days to work on the Chapter Review, pp. 40-41, 1- 40 all, due on Friday. We will have our chapter test next Tuesday.
In social studies we are putting together our posters on pre-historic towns. These are due on Friday.
For science we have a worksheet on the moon due Thursday. We will try to fit a lab in on phases of the moon in on Thursday as well.
In language arts this week we are back to our Latin and Greek roots work. Due Wednesday are the words with the definitions. On Friday we will have a spelling test along with the definitions of three of the words.
This week we will be presenting our book reviews. Please let your child practicing presenting with you at home. The report should be between two and four minutes.
We are wrapping up the first chapter in religion. Students will receive a study guide on Tuesday and the test will be on Wednesday.
Students are praying the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary. They will learn each mystery and its meaning by completing an art activity. On Friday, October 27, sixth graders will lead the school in a Rosary, highlighting the Luminous Mysteries.
We have reach the midpoint of the trimester. If your child has not fulfilled any service hours, now is the time to start thinking about it.
