Let it Snow, Let it Snow, LET IT SNOW!
Just Kidding, not happy with this cold weather
So glad to be back in person with the students! We are back to reading a novel together (ask your child about Fish in a Tree). Students are writing great paragraphs to begin an argumentative piece. In math, students are turning fractions into percents and decimals while continuing to practice our basic skills as well. The year is flying by and I am stressing that they are very close to being 7th graders and may need to "Step up their Game" a little bit. Responsibility is key, but helpful reminders from you are beneficial. Ask to see their google classroom and ask about what we did during the day. Check the classwork list with them and see some of their work! Stay Warm!
"A day that will live on in infamy," famous words spoken by FDR after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Ask your child about the similarities and differences between 12/7/1941 and 9/11/2001. The students watched a few short clips regarding both attacks on United States soil while reading Eleven. They then completed a writing discussing similarities and differences. All students had amazing responses such as both used planes, both are remembered infamously, both caused mass amounts of destruction and wanted to harm the USA.
Please help your child learn their basic multiplication facts! It will be an invaluable tool to have mastered!
Play cards with them, each player draws two cards and must multiply the two cards together. The higher amount wins those cards!
Play beat the calculator, they must answer the multiplication problem while you try to put it in the calculator.
Find Songs on line singing the multiples. (ie: 4,8, 12,16,20)
Wondering what your child is doing each day? Ask them about Eleven by Tom Rogers, to tell you what a noun is, to count by 25s, what the numerator or denominator in a fraction is, how to multiply or divide fractions, about a favorite Achieve article (the return of the war dog, cracking the color code, or scream machines).
Remember your child can never read too much!
So nice to meet so may of you at conferences!
Enjoy the weekend with your family!
Week of RESPECT!

Getting in the Groove
The students have been working hard each day in math, reading, writing, spelling and grammar! Google Classroom always shows an outline of what we are completing for the day!
I will be teaching students ELA and Math to a group of students right across from their homeroom! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions! email@example.com
