6th Grade

What’s coming up?

  • Parent Info Meeting for Outdoor Ed Thurs. 4/19 @ 7PM Mr. Flanagan’s room
  • Outdoor Education May 9-11 for grades      5 & 6 at Camp Casey

What are our Learning Targets?

When we return from break, in Religion we will learn about the women of faith in the Bible and memorize the Act of Hope prayer. In Social Studies we’ll move on to ancient Rome and explore the riches this culture shared with the world through its history, art, and technology. In Literature we will analyze a variety of literary forms, and try our hand at writing some poetry. As May approaches, we will review lessons in Reading goal areas to prepare for the final series of MAP testing.

Parents, ask your 6th grader…

  • to share something interesting learned in the mini book
  • about ancient Romans and their culture
  • how to find specific information in a text
  • what’s happening in their reading books lately
  • if you can help them study their vocabulary words
  • to teach you something from the Religion lesson
  • how one can be kind, respectful, responsible, and safe
  • how they are living the Beatitudes daily
  • if the work turned in meets with junior high expectations
  • to change a fixed mindset into a growth mindset

Reading Support at Home

Parents can help their students shop for a book to read that is “just right” for their reading level by logging into AR Home Connect on the school’s home page and choosing AR Bookfinder in the lower right hand corner. Have students do an advanced search to locate AR books by reading level, interest area, point value, or author. Create an AR Bookbag and then go shopping for these titles at Holy Rosary’s library, or using the online catalog of Sno-Isle libraries at sno-isle.org. It’s such a great resource and it’s FREE! We’ve taken a tour in the classroom…now try it at home.
