I am looking forward to an exciting year for our 6th grade tigers. There are so many activities that accompany the lessons we will study this year - my goal is to keep our tigers engaged through hands on learning activities. Throughout the year we will conduct experiments, make models, diagrams, charts and complete colorful graphic organizers. There are videos, puzzles, game-show style review games, and many more activities that will make learning both interesting and fun!
Our course of study in 6th grade includes physical science, life science, earth science, and ecosystems. The Sallie Humble Library, my classroom library, and the Ouachita Parish Public Library have numerous non-fiction books that coincide with our studies. Many of these are AR books and will help your child reach his or her goal each 9 weeks. I would like to encourage you and your child to read and discuss as many of these books as you possibly can. This is a great opportunity for you and your child to spend quality time together and take learning outside of the classroom!
Again, I am so excited about the upcoming school year! I look forward to working with you to ensure your child has a terrific 6th grade year.
