6th graders are continuing developing their skills on inference, predicting, drawing conclusions and summarizing; skills needed not only for language arts but for their life science class. Towards the end of the week, we’ll going over developing a topic statement, similar to making a hypothesis and write an introduction paragraph for their bread mold experiment they have recently complete in life science. These are challenging skills but the 6th graders up for it and are starting the see the connection between these skills and lessons in life science. There will be a test on Thursday on these 5 skills. For homework, they will have a skills review on Wednesday.
Please encourage your 6th graders to read. We have voracious readers in the 6th grade class. Some students are reading their 4th self-selected book and others are on their second. Whenever and where ever your child has free time, encourage them to read their book or any other book not assigned for school.
