6th Grade Happenings:

  • English w/ Mrs. McFadden –  This week we finished reading “A Christmas Carol”. It was fun to hear different students try their hand at being Scrooge. After we read each scene and answered comprehension questions we watched a different movie version each day. It was interesting to see the many different variations of the tale. As different as each version was, they still kept the fundamental message of it never being too late to live a generous and compassionate life.
  • Foundations of Pre-Algebra w/ Mrs. Murray-The class generally did not perform well on their quizzes last week, so I decided that anyone who scored less than a 30 points would be required to retake the quiz next Tuesday.  We reviewed the material and took another pretest.  Friday, we participated in a task card challenge with some candy bars as randomly selected student prizes.  
  • Music w/Mrs. Chelsey – Students are continuing to rehearse and prepare for the Holiday Show – it’s going to be great!!!!
  • Science w/ Mrs. Farris – Students have completed their science in the news research project. As students began to present their articles, the interesting topics sparked great class discussion so much that we did not get to everyone’s presentations. It was great to see many students engaged with their peer’s presentations and learn from each other. We will continue next week! 
  • Electives w/ Mrs. Boldrick or Mr. McFadden – Design – The design class started cutting out and painting parts of their set pieces for the holiday show. We will finish these pieces by the end of next week. The students are excited to show off their work!  Cultural cooking continued our studies of Mexican cuisine. This week we enjoyed sopaipillas and Mexican wedding cookies.
