Welcome to 6th Grade ELA & History
2020-2021September 7-11Dear 6th Grade Families,Last weekend, families were emailed their 6th grader's Accelerated Reader semester 1 goal (10 points), as well as their student's reading range (ZPD). Students should find AR books within their reading range and taking AR tests to reach or surpass their 10 point goal by the December 11 due date. We will be starting our fall novel, Maniac Magee, this week. Students will have daily readings and corresponding questions in Google Classroom Classwork.In social studies we have discussed the reasons we study history and reviewed the world map, landforms, and how to read a timeline (both BC/BCE & AD/CE). Students are creating a personal timeline of significant events that have taken place each year of their life. These are due next week. We have also started reading the first chapter in our textbook, "Uncovering the Past."This week in Skills we completed a questionnaire about our study habits. It helped us determine areas where we are proficient and areas we could strengthen. I will be teaching study skills strategies to address these problem areas throughout the quarter.Together we are mountain strong!Welcome Letter:Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to sixth grade and C.T. English! I am thrilled to be your teacher this year as you embark upon a new phase in life. I think you will find the curriculum interesting, and my hope is for you to leave sixth grade even more confident, independent, knowledgeable, and creative.
My distance learning instructions and resources will be posted on Google Classroom. For security reasons, access codes for Zoom meetings and GoogleClassroom will not be posted to my website. If you need an access code, please email me.I have also created homework links that can be found on the side menu bar.Though this is not the ideal start to the year, it opens up opportunities to foster and celebrate the resilience, perserverence, and adaptability in each of our students.Warm regards,Melanie Dudleym.firstname.lastname@example.org
Email is my preferred method of contact; however, I am able to provide phone conferences by appointment.
During remote instruction, I will not have access to my classroom phone, as I am off-campus. Please email me and we can schedule a phone call or Zoom meeting.
