Home Students Classroom Pages Grade 6 - Mrs. Emond April Showers

April Showers

During the month of April, students will write and illustrate their own children’s storybook of the classic book that they read.  All work will be done during their literature blocks.  They will give their buddies a copy of the book to color.

This month, students will have Lessons 28, 29, and 30 spelling.  Since we are entering our final quarter, it is very important to remember to study for the weekly tests.  The words are found in their class text or on www.spellingcity.com.

The focus in Religion class is Jesus’ ministry, Easter, proverbs, and the formation of the Catholic Church.  The chapters in our text are 27, 16, and 17.

The sixth grade will complete a bridge building project as a final assessment to the graphing unit.  They will build bridges from toothpicks, index cards, popsicle sticks, or tongue depressors.  Their bridges must expand a 10 inch span and must hold at least two math textbooks.   The remainder of the month will be spent working on the geometry unit.   We will study polygons and angles.  We will study both the customary units of measure and the metric system.  Perimeter, area, surface area, and volume are included in the lessons.  Extra help is Wednesday at 8 A.M.  The Geometry sections (AA), (BB), and (CC) are the focus on www.ixl.com/signin/stchris.

The fifth grade is studying measurement.  They will learn to convert between the different measurements in the metric system.  Extra help is Thursday at 8 A.M.  The Measurement section (Y) is the focus on www.ixl.com/signin/stchris.
