It was a fun-filled (albeit shortened) week in 6th grade. Students did a wonderful job on our field trip to the Milwaukee Public Museum (photos here). Thank you to Mrs. Luoma and Mrs. Giron for attending! This week officially wrapped up our Dig unit in social studies; click here for photos from throughout the simulation. Next in SS, students will be participating in a simulation of the Stone Age, reading about early hominids, the development of tools, and agricultural advancement.
In ELA this week, we reviewed expectations for independent reading in 6th grade. All students should be reading at home at least 20 minutes a night, whether it is an assigned book or one of their choice. I shared an infographic with students, to reinforce how important it is for them to be reading. Next week we will begin editing personal narratives and continue to work on building characterization skills. This will be modeled using our latest read aloud selection, which we started this week, Refugee by Alan Gratz.
