Reading Suggestions

IMPACT Academy's 5th/6th Grade Teacher

Mrs. Danielle Williams





January to March is often called the "sweet spot" of the year as we build upon skills introduced in the fall.

In math we are delving into area with composite figures. We will be using some new math tools and manipulatives and working on multiple step problems.

In ELA we begin a new novel, The Hobbit,  and will be working on literary analysis.

In history we begin studying ancient Israel

In Science we continue with our study of Earthquakes and Plate Tectonics!

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 a play presentation! Stay tuned! 


JUST A REMINDER:  All signatures are due by Friday
