Grades will be posted online once I get a few grades in the subject. I don't want kids and parents to panic unnecessarily if one low grade is creating an overall low grade. Reading and spelling grades will go in by early next week.
Many kids are receiving low science grades from simply not being complete with their work. I worked with both classes on how to restate questions into the answers and support them with details. If you see a low grade, please help reinforce this by looking over your child's work. A copy of the pg. 177 questions are in the document manager, so you can see a good example of what's expected.
Please remember to check the "document manager" tab for new notes each Friday. Thank you to the 16 of you who are checking the parent updates. This is your best way to know what is going on in class.
As we learn new vocabulary in science and reading, I encouraged the kids to make flashcards and start studying early and often, rather than waiting until the night before tests.
PS...To last year's class, please come by and visit so I don't miss you too much. I'm in room 508 this year. Also please remember to unsubscribe from my website and subscribe to your 6th grade class. Have a great year in 6th grade!
