Home Students Classroom Pages Grade 6 - Mrs. Emond May News

May News

 

May is a very busy month.  We have a very special Mary program this month.  The sixth grade will lead the school in the May Procession on Friday the 18th.  Two sixth graders will be chosen as the May Queen and the crown bearer.

Spelling for the month will be lessons 31, 32, 33 and 34.  All spelling can be found at www.spellingcity.com.  The homework is due on Thursdays and the tests are Fridays.

Religion will focus of Mary. We will also finish the text with chapters 18, 19, 22 and 23. We are slowly leaving the Old Testament for the New Testament.

In Literature, we are finishing two book reports.  One was an award winner and the other was a classic.  For the classic book report, the students wrote and illustrated their own version of the story.

The sixth grade will finish the percent unit.  They have focused on real-life math applications.  The last unit will compare the metric system and customary units.  Area, volume, and circumference are included in the measurement unit.  Extra help is on Wednesdays at 8 AM.  Sections R, S, T, and V are great places for extra practice on www.ixl.com/signin/stchris.

The fifth grade will finish the measurement unit.  They are about to start my favorite unit.  The will learn the basic rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing algebraic equations.  They will finally get to solve integer equations.  Two negatives make a positive (in multiplication and division).  Extra help moves back to Mondays on 14th.  Sections Z, EE, V, and U are great places for extra practice onwww.ixl.com/signin/stchris.
