Great Start to the Year!

It is great to be back teaching 6th graders! Seems like we’ve gotten off to an exciting start with tons of new things to learn. This week, we are focusing on using parts of the scientific method and being able to work in groups cooperatively. Next week, will be some reviewing with new concepts added daily.

I am very excited and looking forward to working with your child this year!

NON living environment

Greetings, seems like things are rolling along quite nicely the last couple of weeks. The students seem to be learning lot and having a good time doing it. Next Friday, I will put them to the test (literally) when we have a test over chp. 5. There is a ton of content in this section so any review you can do with your child would be beneficial. THey have many notes, wkst.’s, activities, etc. they can study to help them on the test. Cheers!

Nonliving Environment

Greetings, sorry for the delay in the posts. Time has truly gotten away from me, but i can assure you that both kids and I have been very hard at work. We are currently in the midst of investigating the three cycles of nature; water, carbon, and nitrogen and how they all effect living and nonliving things.
