6th Grade Science Agenda Nov 2020-May 2021 Revised.

This agenda was revised after Thanksgiving. It is still very tentative! It will be adjusted based on numerous factors that impact our schedule. Check your student’s planner for changes and reminders. I set aside several minutes during science class to allow the students to write the homework assignment in their planners. Please follow the planner instead of the agenda.

Mock Science Fair Projects: Everyone can breathe a BIG sigh of relief since the Mock Science Fair Projects are finished, graded, and returned! As I read their Post-project Summaries and posters, I was so proud of the students! They worked very hard from the first step of exploring possible topics to the last section being glued on the poster. When I asked what they learned from the experience, they said they learned it takes a long time, a lot of work, and attention to detail. What a valuable lesson to learn! Their summary grade sheets included comments that they can use to improve future science fair projects. Thank you for your support through this major assignment. Enjoy your weekend!

KEYBOARDING

Happy snow week! Emoji  I hope you and your family are staying safe and warm during this winter storm! Emoji
Since we will not be in class tomorrow, here is the keyboarding practice for this week at home:
1.  Students need to continue practicing keying letters with the correct posture, with their hands in the home
     position, and without looking down at the keys.
2.  This week’s lesson is on four-letter words.  The students will need to key the words on pg. 42 and print it out to
      bring to class next week.
3.  For fun and extra practice, let them go to http://www.typing.com and play some typing games.  They can also
     go to  http://www.typingtest.com and practice some WPM (word per minute) tests.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
Thanks.
