Sixth Grade Sentinel – 9/25/2020

Happy Autumn!

For curriculum pick-up tomorrow, teachers do not need anything returned other than the nature bag itself. That said, if any students are finished reading Front Desk or Red Scarf Girl, you are welcome to return those books in the bag. Coming to students in this pick up are some materials from Mrs. Wright for Math and Science.

This week in core subjects:

  • ELA: students completed NWEA (or started testing at least), they also held their literature circle meetings to share roles for week 2, and started analyzing their own narrative writing
  • Social studies: students shared their artifact projects and got to share observations and inferences. Today we wrap up our unit and will be spending next week as a transition into studying Primitive time
  • Math: students also completed NWEA and continued working through Module 1 lessons
  • Science: we learned about Charles Darwin and ran a simulation of Natural Selection using bird beak sizes

I’m sure many would agree that now more than ever, it is so important for children to have books at home. Scholastic Reading Club can be a resource for ordering books of interest (with the added bonus of earning our class FREE books)! You can shop the flyers with your child and place an order using our class code: 1FFDY. All books ship to school, and will be distributed via the nearest curriculum pick-up day. 

Lastly, for families interested in supporting students’ voting for the Rebecca Caudill Young Readers Award, please utilize these 2 resources:
