6th Grade Peek at the Week

                                     December 1115                                        

Reading / Language Arts: We will continue to work in our literature circles. We will also continue to work with grammar, mechanics and start working with some vocabulary. We are looking towards writing a persuasive paper, where we are going to try to apply for a job as an elf at the North Pole! We also just finished our “Twas the Night Before Christmas” Mad Libs. They turned out really cool, make sure to check in with your 6th grader to get a chance to read them!

Math 5: We are going to continue to work with fractions. We will be learning how to compare fractions, how to subtract fractions, relating fractions and wholes, and fractions that are greater than one.

Social Studies: We will be learning about the Fur Trade and how it impacted Minnesota.

Religion: We will be learning about the Psalms, the Prayers of Jesus. We will talk about how the psalms help us learn how to pray, and Wisdom literature gives us practical advice on how to live. We will also be doing some Advent / Jesse Tree bible work. The new December 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 also going to be kicking off one of our two big projects in science for this year. We are going to be introducing the balloon popping contraptions! This is such a fun project the kids so enjoy doing this and I LOVE to see how creative they get in their engineering skills!! So please be on the lookout for them “rummaging” for needed supplies for this project.
