Reading Suggestions

IMPACT Academy's 5th/6th Grade Teacher

Mrs. Danielle Williams




This is a busy month in sixth grade!  In math we’re working on prime and composite numbers, prime factorization, greatest common factor, least common multiples, and multiplying and dividing fractions.

In ELA, we’re working on descriptive and informative writing, and elements of short stories (plot structure, setting, dialogue, character traits, etc). Students will work through the writing and revision process as they craft their essays .

In history, we’re learning about early humans and the Mesopotamia civilization. Brush up on your map skills!

In science we’re going to start on plate tectonics and how our world is put together!

Each Friday we continue our Student Choice IMPACT ROTATIONS for students who have completed their work this week. Students chose either DRAMA, ART or LEADERSHIP for Friday afternoon activities. In the spring we are planning an art show and dramatic presentation! Stay tuned! 


JUST A REMINDER:  All signatures are due by Friday
