We’ve completed the third week of school and it’s full steam ahead!
Students will have their first Unit test on Tuesday of this week. Because students switch for this subject, I do not see any of my homeroom students during math time. However, all four 6th grade teachers will be testing Tuesday, 9/10. Study, study!
This past week we continued to talk about Story Elements and Plot Elements. We also learned about Characters and Conflict in a story and how multiple conflicts create suspense and interest for the reader.
This week coming up, we will finally get to start our first novel, Ghost by Jason Reynolds. Students will also be taking the CDTs on Tuesday. The CDTs give us a better look at where the student is at academically and investigate areas of need for students.
Spelling Packet #1 was given out and completed! Students did AMAZING on their first spelling test. Spelling Packets will be given out on Fridays and collected the following Thursday. All Spelling Tests will be on Friday as well.
Lastly, students have started the Earth Science unit in science this year. All four teachers will be teaching a section for three days, then the students will rotate to a different teacher to learn about another section of the Earth Science unit. Students will have all four teachers during this unit at some point over the next 12 days.
Below are some pictures of our class taking a VR (Virtual Reality) tour using our Google Expedition Goggles purchased by our wonderful PTO. We were the first class at Hambright to use these Goggles! It was awesome!
