Hello Parents!

Homework this week: reading log due Friday & any unfinished work from class (on an individual basis). No vocab lists, hw, or quizzes this week due to the shortened week… and the crowd goes wild!! 🙂

 

6th: Students will finish identifying the six traits of writing in the “Carpet Fitter” in small groups to show understanding in identifying the traits on their own. Retaining these traits will be key to developing their writing skills for the next three years. We will also be practicing/learning basic chromebook skills for future use this year. There are seven chromebooks for the 6th grade. These will be helpful for group work and research for classwork, documents to email (turn in), etc.
