6th Grade 

 

I am super excited this year to have the opportunity to teach 6th graders, the leaders of our school! Although this has been an unusual start to the school year, we are accomplishing great things, learning a lot, and having fun throughout the journey. 

To learn more about me, click on my name on the top right side of the page.

Sixth graders  analyze, identify, define, explain, integrate, evaluate, compare, contrast, and cite supportive evidence for their answers and thinking.  Understanding the precise meaning of words, and English language conventions is important in the many types of writing explored this year.   Did you know that by sixth grade, over 50% of reading time and activities are focused on informational text?  

In math, sixth grade students are able to write and evaluate simple numerical expressions that contain paretheses, brackets, and can form ordered pairs from numerical patterns generated from a given rule and graph the ordered pairs.  We will focus on three and four digit calculations with multiplication and division, measurement, and more.  Students extend their understanding of operations with fractions to include dividing fractions by fractions. 

In science we will focus on the Next Generation Science Standards to include, energy, natural forces, weather, water, planatary and space systems and forces, human system inteactions, and diversity of life and more.

In sixth grade world history and geography, we will learn about the lives of the earliest humans, the development of tools, the gathering way of life, agriculture, and the emergence of civilizations in Mesopotamia, Egypt, the Indus River Valley, China and the Mediterranean basin.  

Do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions.
