A Peek at Our Week
Language Arts: I really enjoyed spending a few days with our 6th graders at Camp Nuhop. We had such a great time! We have just completed quarter 1 and are beginning quarter 2. We are working in our common core workbook. This is our non fiction quarter so we will begin the books "Malala" or "Parallel Journeys" soon! I assign a book project every quarter. This quarter students must read a non fiction book that I approve. There can not be a movie associated with the book. This is due December 9th and is an at home project, please check your google assignments to make your slide show.
Math: We will be comparing diffferent ratios,using fractions, decimals, and percents. Have a great week!!!!
Science Week of 10/21 This week students will take a closer look at soil texture with our soil separation activity. They will see the different layers of sand, silt, and clay. They will then figure out the percentage of each type to figure out what kind of soil sample they have, i.e, sandy loam, silty loam, etc. a great way to work math into the lesson!
Social Studies: Students are currently working on an inclass project demonstrating their map skills. We will be finishing up on Monday 9/23 and starting a review for our first unit test. Our unit test will cover map skills, map types and the five themes of geography. As of now our test is scheduled for Wednesday 9/25. I will be sending out a message in remind as well. GO CHIPPS!!
