Please let me know if there are any questions that you would like me to address. Remember, the planner and goal tracker are key components of daily communication between the school and home. Please be sure to check and sign it daily. Curriculum: Math: We are covering Ch. 4 and 5 which is on rates, ratios and percents. This includes equivalent ratios, comparing ratios, unit rates, unit conversions, and using percents. Language Arts:. Some of the strategies that we have learned this quarter include identifying main idea and supporting details, author’s point of view, and non-fiction text structures. A big focus in 6th grade is Greek and Latin roots. Students will use this knowledge to build their vocabulary. Science: This month we are introducing the periodic table and the atomic model. Encourage your child to study their notes! Social Studies: As part of our study of ancient civilizations, we will be learning about many of the world’s religions. This would be a good time to discuss your family’s beliefs with your child.
