6th Grade – Surprenant

May Newsletter

Down to the Wire– But it isn’t over yet!!

Students may come in before and after school to get help on work.
Students who get cold during the day may wear a navy blue, white, or grey sweater. Hoodies are not acceptable.

Students found in violation of the dress code will receive a detention.

Review spelling lists are being sent home to help bring up reading grades. Please look for words in your child’s folder.

Please send in your intent forms for Michigan Adventure. Money is due by May 29. Let me know if this is an issue.

We continue to read aloud in class and work on retelling what we’ve heard. We are currently reading The Incredible Journey.

Students have begun digging in to their research about a topic of their choosing. In addition to the research paper they are writing, they must also do a presentation using a variety of media sources.

We continue to work with functions and graphing as we look at linear and nonlinear equations and what that looks like on a graph. We will also review graphing composite and inverse functions as well as reviewing past objectives for mastery.

Science will bring the exploration of matter, chemicals, and parts of a wave. We have been watching many videos to help us understand our science concepts a little more and will hope to get our hands “dirty” through experimentation.

We continue with our research of South America as we dig into the many characteristics and history of this vast land.

Students have enjoyed our classroom workouts and will continue to be leaders in the school as they lead us in warm up and stretching exercises for ACES. We will then go back and review previous health objectives.

Testing continues throughout the whole month of May so please make sure your child is well-rested and well-nourished before each test.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful ladies and all the hard work you have put in to raising your children.

Spring has Sprung:
Warm weather is inching closer, but until then, please make sure your student is dressing properly.
