Grade 6 - Mrs. Emond


Welcome to Sixth Grade! If you have any questions or concerns, please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I have been teaching at St. Christopher School for over 10 years. I started teaching as a 5th grade homeroom teacher, where I taught science to 5th and 6th grade. Then I became a 6th grade homeroom teacher, where I currently teach math to the 5th and 6th grade.

I grew up in various cities throughout the US and Germany, until my father was stationed in Massachusetts, settling in Nashua, NH. This was a fortunate turn of events, because it brought me to St. Christopher’s, first as a member of the parish and second as a teacher. I graduated from Keene State College, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish.

Too Much Snow

I think we have been out of school more than we have been in school this month.  We have had an abundance of snow days this month.  Catholic Schools Week got off to a great start.  We had a fun time planning and practicing for our mass with our 1M buddies.  We are so proud of how awesome they did in their first mass.  A special CONGRATULATIONS goes out to all of our Spelling Bee contestants.  Levi, Ian, Finn, Ally, and Tyler were our 6E Spelling Bee Contestants.  Great Job!  It takes a lot of courage to stand up in front of so many people.  Kelsey from 6W was our School’s winner.  She will represent us in the regional Bee.  PJ day was a lot of fun!  We were all decked out in our finest “jammies”.  6E read stories to our 1M buddies.   Later we had ice cream sundaes.  To finish the week, we had a Beach Day, a Poetry Slam, and a Movie Event with our buddies.  Catherine and Brooke were our poets for the slam.  Catholic Schools Week is always a lot of fun!

We are studying fractions in Math.  In Science and Computer class, we are becoming weather experts.  We will be creating Haiku poems in Literature.  Then we will set our poems to pictures and music during our computer classes.  In English we have been working on New Year’s Eve around the world.  We are researching a country to make an “ABC “book for Social Studies.  We made a Valentine for our Meals on Wheels friends.  We are currently collecting nonperishable items for Corpus Christi as a service project.   

The 6th grade is looking forward to attending the Boston Symphony at the end of the month.  We will head to the big city with Ms. Polcari to enjoy some fine music.  We thank the Parent Group for paying for our bus ride down.    


Christmas Greetings from 6E and 6W

The month of December has been a joyous celebration of the season in so many ways.

The Jesse Tree, which depicts the family tree of Jesus, is an annual Christmas event in Grade Six.  6W  has individual trees on display in the classroom. 6E has a class tree on the hallway bulletin board. Each student made one of the ornaments.  This project goes along with our study of Advent in religion class. We met our Adopted Sister, Sister Marilyn, for the first time. Everyone loved having her visit. We are so grateful for her Christmas gifts, mini-flashlights that symbolize that Jesus is the Light of the World.

Shopping with Kids was a very exciting day.  Santa stopped by the classrooms and escorted the classes to the church hall.  Thank you to all the parents who organized and ran this wonderful event.

This year is was our turn to play the important roles in the Christmas Pageant and Fine Arts Festival.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the shows.  Thank you to Mrs. Polcari, Mrs. Moraros, and Mrs. Landry for all their hard work putting these productions together.

We completed a unit on Christmas Around the World in Social Studies. The fifth grade studied Christmas in America.

The main focus for literature this month was a play version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

We have been studying the coordinate plane and integers in Math.  We even created our own “connect-the dots.”

Both classes will celebrate with classroom Christmas parties. 6E will be in charge of the school-wide Christmas Prayer Service.

Merry Christmas to all!

Happy 2011!

Giving Thanks!

6E and 6W worked really hard preparing for their musical.  "Joust" was a great success.  It was wonderful to see that so many parents were able to make it.  If you missed it, check out the website.  Mrs. Nissen filmed the musical.  Mayor Lozeau, the mayor of Nashua, and Sean McDonald from Channel 9 news came and spoke to the sixth grade.  Both presentations were fantastic.  The students were excellent listeners and had some really great questions for both our speakers.

We had our first Meals-On-Wheels activity this past month.  We made our friends bookmarks.  In Religion we study the Old Testament.  We are currently reading about Moses.  PEMDAS, order of operations, has been our focus in Math.  We just finished a group project on PEMDAS to help understand the correct order to solve a multi-step math problem.  Greek gods and goddesses are the name of the game for Social Studies.  Italian Menus are on our plates for English this month.  Underwater sea adventures have been occurring in Science.  Next month on December 8th, 6E will lead Mass.
