6th Grade Math with Mrs. McKinney
We are learning about area of various shapes and will also study volume of prisms this week.
BOOKADVENTURE--Students will get to read as many books as they want and take quizzes whenever they are ready to earn points for a prize. Their goal is 600 points for an "A" for a reading grade each quarter. If they earn 1000 points, they can receive a treat, and if they reach 3500 points by the end of the year, they will receive an ice cream party.
Students are NOT ALLOWED to read books that they have read before. 6th graders need to read books that are in the 6th grade level or higher. They may read a 5th grade level book if it has a Lexile score of 900 or higher. I will keep track in school of books and points at school.
