Week of October 30
6th Grade Math with Mrs. McKinney

We will begin chapter 4 and learn about factors and prime factors and factorization.

We will be taking Timed Multiplication and Division tests too this year.  So make sure you know your math facts!!

Reading

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.


Deadline for 2nd quarter is Dec 15th.

We will read  "Names/Nombres".   Students will understand tone and  fact and opinion.  Test on Friday.

Each week a student presents a poem of the week.  The poem should be written by a famous published author.

Spelling

 We will use words from lesson 6 this week.  Packets due Wednesday.  Test Friday.

English

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 tcontinue studying direct objects and transitive verbs.  We will also learn about compound sentences and how to write them correctly.

We will be reading a book in class written by Chad Varga called Bounce.  It is an inspiring book about how to bounce back in negative situations and to accomplish what you want to do for yourself.  

Religion



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.

The Catholic Faith is very important to me, and we will have religion class each day.  I expect participation in class as well as at Mass and during Rosary and other prayer moments.

We will begin chapter 6 and study the New Testament letters of the Bible.

 

Living Rosary on October 12 at 7:30 will be an extra credit opportunity as well as a spiritual one:)

 

Social Studies

Students are now working in chapter 7 to learn about the physical features and  climate of Latin America.

Science

We will continue work in chapter 1 this week.  Students will perform  a lab to calculate average speed.  They will begin preparing for the test on October 31st.

 

Leaf Collections are due October 30th!
