English & Reading
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go."
— Dr. Seuss, "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!"
Each month the class is assigned a new novel to read. They should be reading this novel for homework.
Starting in October, the students will be going over to Chamberlain to work with the 2nd graders as a "reading buddy".
Teacher websites for Spelling and Vocabulary practice:
Over the course of the year, students will learn about ancient civilizations. We will look at the first humans, followed by why humans settled in certain areas such as
Mesopotamia and Egypt. Followed by more developed civilizations like Greece and Rome.
In grade 6, students' recall of their basic multiplication facts will provide a solid foundation for learning higher level concepts, such as division of whole numbers and working with ratios. We'll be working quite a bit with word problems and various strategies with which to solve them. We'll be using a variety of resources, Pearson Realize being one of them.
