6th Grade Peek at the Week

February 26th – March 2nd  

Reading / Language Arts: We will continue to work in our literature circles. We will also continue to work with grammar, mechanics and continue working with vocabulary. We will be starting our DARE essays. The majority of this paper will be completed at home. Please check in with your 6th grader to make sure that they are working on it. We don’t have an “official” due date for this yet, but as soon as I get one I will pass it along.

Math 5: We will be working with multiplying multiplication and division of whole numbers and decimals, shift patterns, area model for multiplication, multiplying 2 digit numbers and multiplication with longer numbers.

Social Studies: We will begin working in Chapter 7 where we will be learning about Minnesota’s Newcomers. We will be learning about the different parts of government and what each of their responsibilities are. We will also look at how the treaties of 1854 and 1855 impacted the Ojibwe, and how the newcomers that arrived in the 1850s affected Minnesota. We will be looking towards a test in the near future.

Religion: We will be learning about the Marks of the Church. We will learn that the church is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. The February Bible verse is out and on the move! Everything is on Schoology, the verse and all of the things that they need to complete as well as when each assignment is due.

Science: We are learning about the tools of science. We will be learning more about how measurement is the common language, we will talk about what math skills scientists use in collecting data and making measurements and what math tools they use to analyze their data, and we will learn about what kind of data line graphs represent and why they are powerful tools in science. This chapter we are having the students teach the lessons. It is very exciting to see what they come up with to teach this information to each other.
