6th Grade Math with Mrs. McKinney
We will work with percents in solving problems. We will finish chapter 7 by end of week.
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 30 points for an "A" for a reading grade each quarter. If a student earns more than 50 points, he/she can receive a treat like a candy bar or a small bag of chips.If they reach 150 points by the end of the year, then he/she will have an ice cream party.
Students need to read books that have 5 or more points.
In class this week we will read a story called "The Sound of Summer Running." Test on Friday.
We will work with Lesson 11 words. Packet due on Wednesday.
PLEASE SAVE ALL WORD LISTS from week to week because there will be review activities every few weeks and students need to have old lists.
Students have their own copies of the Jingles and the Reference pages. They are expected to keep these pages handy and in proper working condition for the year as we do not have textbooks for English.
We will discuss predicate nouns and regular and irregular verbs.
We are praying the rosary each week so make sure your child has a rosary. If your child does not have a rosary, he/ she will not get participation points.
