Grade 6 - Miss Wefers
I teach social studies to the fifth and sixth grades at St. Christopher. I love history, current events, and the Boston Red Sox!
I hope everyone had a wonderful vacation and is ready for a busy month.
We are now in the liturgical season of Lent. Our class will prepare for Easter with a special unit in religion class and attending the Stations of the Cross every Friday.
Grade Six Social Studies classes are studying Europe this month. Students will participate in a project done in teams of two or three working together at school to construct a European castle. They will have 60 minutes to create this castle from recycled materials brought from home.
Grade Five Social Studies classes have begun a unit on the colonization of America. After seeing the finished Grade 6 junk projects and assisting the sixth graders on their second day of the project. The fifth grade students will create some historical Colonial landmarks later this spring.
This month's genre for the March book report is a non-fiction historical event. There will be an activity to complete in school at the end of the month.
Please continue to have students practice their spelling list words in preparation for the weekly test on Fridays. Logging on to spellingcity.com is an excellent way to study for these tests.
Good luck to the St. Christopher basketball teams when they compete in the regionals in Connecticut later this month. Go, Go, Go, Huskies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope to see many of you at the auction this weekend!
