February 21, 2020- 6th Grade Teacher’s Notes
Literature- We are starting a new novel, The Westing Game
English- It looks like the Unit 7 test on verbs will be Tuesday, Feb. 25th.
6th Grade Social Studies– We will be wrapping up our Asia study with a final country project. We are continuing to work on our project celebrating Black History Month (February). Each child has researched a well-known African-American. They have written a speech highlighting what they are known for or their contributions. Their speeches are in their possession, so they can start memorizing. Throughout February they will work on a few different activities and at the end of the month they will give their speech. Ask your child if they have started working on memorizing their speech.
6th Math-We have started Unit E which covers Measurement and Data. In Topic 14, the students are learning about Data Displays. There will probably be a test at the end of next week.
