Thank you for sharing your wonderful 6th graders with me, we have had so much fun getting to know each other this week! Next week we will start academics. 6th graders typically have daily assignments in each of their classes and I always plan to have some work time in class for these assignments.
9/10: Spelling Pretest Ch 1 (words are available in the documents section below if you would like a preview).
-Start reading Loser by Jerry Spinelli as a whole class with small group work for in depth conversations.
-Start literature groups (students will get a hand out regarding their personal responsibilities)
9/14: Spelling Test Ch 1 – Your child will not have a test on Friday if she or he gets 100% on the pretest.
On September 12th, there is a Virtus Code of Conduct training at 4:30. If you are interested in attending, please contact Aleisha Webb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations on making it through the hectic first week, I look forward to working with you to best support your child!
