Sixth Grade Gazette 4/14/17

Dear parents,

 

Thank you to everyone who helped support our Taste of the World event on Tuesday afternoon! Whether you helped cook, prepared food, attended the event, or just gave moral support, it is all greatly appreciated. The students did a wonderful job presenting to 8 different classes (ranging from Kindergarteners to 8th graders) throughout the afternoon. In our next few Social Studies classes, we will be gathering and organizing recipes by continent in a class-wide cookbook.

In ELA, we have continued our Red Scarf Girl unit, completing a quote analysis worksheet most recently. In Science, everyone has been working on 20% projects, which are projects that range in topics because students have a few options for what their focus will be.

 

In our specials, we began playing badminton (PE), learned about social skills (Health), and making 3-dimensional green roof designs (Art).
