A Peek at Our Week
Language Arts: Welcome to 6th grade Language Arts! We have just finished our first fiction book of the year, "Hatchet." Students will have a final (in-class) project that will reach various learning styles. Students have received information for their fictional book project which is due Oct. 25th through google classroom where they will create a power point presentation.
Math: We will be learning the distributive property, percents, and the correct graphical representation of data over the next few weeks.
I will not be available for conferences Thursday (10/11). I am available on Friday (10/12 & 10/19) from 3:30 - 5:30. Contact the office if interested.
