Grade 6 December Update
Language Arts— We will continue to explore a variety of texts such as non-fiction passages, poems, and short stories while reviewing strategies for increasing our comprehension. We will focus on critical literacy this month as we explore point of view and persuasive writing.
6th Grade Math - We are finishing up our unit on integers. We will then solve practical integer problems using models, number lines, and computation.
Advanced Math – We are working on writing and evaluating algebraic expressions and solving one step linear equations.
Science— We are continuing with our Weather unit as we investigate and describe the patterns of weather including weather fronts and cloud formations.
Social Studies— We will begin our unit on Colonial America. We will identify the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Southern colonies. We will discuss the reasons the colonies were established as well as explore the possible theories of Roanoke, the lost colony.
