It's another short week this week! Make sure you are checking out the upcoming dates and reading through what's going on in 6th grade! Thanks!
As a reminder, students should be bringing home graded papers to show you! They can complete corrections on any paper to earn up to 1/2 credit back (homework, quizzes, tests, etc.). They should also be charging their chromebooks at home on a regular basis. Try to find a specific spot and set up a routine for checking/charging those devices. We are still having a number of chromebooks dying during class, so please make it a priority to talk with your student about this.
This week in math, we are continuing Chapter 2! On Tuesday and Wednesday this week, we will be working on 2.2.2, continuing this idea of area and how to measure area, including correct units. On Thursday and Friday, we will continue that focus to determine what kind of relationship there is between area and perimeter. Students will only have one homework assignment this week - 2.2.2 Review Preview worksheet due Thursday. Students should also be working on any late work and corrections that they still need to do! All late work and corrections for Quarter 1 are due by this Friday!
Struggling to help your student with homework??? Take advantage of CPM's Homework Help page! We spent time going over this a lot at the very beginning of the year, but some need a refresher! Almost all math homework assignments come from CPM, and CPM has homework help for each problem. Simply find the homework probelm (all on their textbook page!), click on the homework help link, and hints will come up for that problem. Some problems even give you a bonus hint/help! You can also access the Homework Help using the Website Links here on my website.
This week in social studies we are starting a new lesson! Students will explore how geographic challenges led to the rise of Sumerian city-states (TCI Lesson 4). Since our social studies textbook is online (TCI), students can log in at home anytime!
Have a wonderful week!
