Welcome to Sixth Grade!

November –December Service Project—“Canstruction”

GOAL–100 CANS PER CLASS.

We love this project for our kids. We are working on our ideas for our “Canstructions” this next week. Everyone is encourage to submit an idea. This is a great project to remind your student that there are many kids in Jackson that open their cabinets to nothing. We will collect cans for two weeks. We will build our project the week before Thanksgiving. PLEASE SEND THOSE CANS IN THE NEXT WEEK.  We take anything. We took some of our cans last year to the Care Center and Dream Center. Both of these programs help single women with and without children to feel loved and supported with food as well as shelter so they have a better life.

English Agenda 

To the 2017-2018 6th grade students: August 10, 2017 is coming soon and I am excited to meet you all! Don’t forget to bring all your supplies labeled with your name. Also, be sure to have your novel with you the first day as well (6th-Holes). On the first day of school, we will spend some time getting to know each other, getting organized with books and materials, and learning about what my guidelines for the year will be for our class. Please make sure that you bring a composition book the first day of school! They have some at Kroger for 50 cents!

Fall 6th grade agenda 2017 new

Bottle Biography project

This year at Faith, I hope to help your child be organized and more responsible with classwork, homework, projects, and time. My hope is that you will help your child with these skills in the beginning but that soon they will gain ownership of most of the responsibility. Each day I will teach a grammar lesson and a writing lesson. On Tuesday, in addition to grammar and writing, we will discuss our novel. I will give homework in grammar and writing on Tuesday and Thursday. Our novel assignments will be given on Thursday so your child will have Friday-Tuesday to complete the reading and discussion questions. We will move along quickly in order to Fall 6th grade agenda 2017 new the curriculum. I will need your child to complete the work at home and for you to check the completed work to make sure your child’s practice is resulting in mastery of the new skill taught each week. *NOTICE! The homework assignments need to be checked at home. I will check the classwork done on Tuesday and Thursday as well as the completed novel projects and final writing assignments. Please feel free to use the homework you check as another grade. Grammar tests will be given at Faith. In order for your child to participate in novel discussions, they will need to bring completed discussion questions to class on Tuesday each week. For the vocabulary portion of the discussion guide, I would prefer we all use merriam-webster.com. That way we all have similar definitions. I will not grade these for correct answer but will take a grade on participation. Therefore, these are important to have completed. They will also serve as a study guide for the end of novel test. I will update the agenda each week so you will be aware of what we did in class. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or as needs may arise. I will get back to you as soon as I can. My email is: faith.tutorial@yahoo.com

**This year we will be reading a Newberry Award winning novel entitled Holes, by Louis Sachar. It is an adventure book for ages 8-12. It is a humorous and moving book that children really respond to. As we begin to read this book, other topics I want to make you aware of are:  unfairness of Stanley’s life, cold-hearted viciousness of some of the authority figures, violence, and love between different races that leads to lynching. The overall themes of friendship, loyalty, and redemption are why this book was chosen as part of the sixth grade curriculum. That will be what our class discussions will focus on. Please feel free to discuss these topics with your child at home as we read it this Fall.


Math Agenda-Nov. and Dec. Plans

Proud of our kids and their hard work. We will be taking it up a level in Sixth Grade. Some need to push ahead to a higher level of working. They should not continue to make the same mistakes. We will be working on that in class together.

Science

 

I am SO excited that I get to teach 4th Grade Science this year! We will have a great time and learn tons! Along with information we will study from your textbooks and Activity Manuals, we will be doing several hands-on activities! The Scientific Method will be used often in class. We will begin talking about the steps involved in the Scientific Method on the first day of school!

Students are responsible for being prepared for class. Just a few ways that you can be prepared:

1.  Be on time! Class begins as 8:30 a.m.
2.  Always bring your textbook, Activity Manual, binder (with agenda/planner), pencils, etc.
3.  Always complete any homework that has been assigned. Each night, I will assign pages to read in your textbook and Activity Manual pages to complete. There will be quizzes  to study for as well.
4. Always ask for help! That is what I am here for!
