6th Grade

Welcome to the Sixth Grade

We are learning about the parts of the Bible and are creating a booklet to teach others about what’s in this great source of wisdom, history, God’s love, and our faith family. This project is using Microsoft Publisher during our STEM time.

The students sent their first letter off to their seminarian pen pals. We are reciting the Vocation Prayer to help us discern what God’s plan is for us.

Also, our investigation of the parts of the brain and how it works has given us a better appreciation for incorporating a growth mindset into every aspect of our lives. We have watched several YouTube videos about it and I invite you to watch one with your student and discuss it at home. Try this link to see one:

Here’s what’s coming up….

RAM RUN is tomorrow! Wear spirit shirts and appropriate clothing for running around the track. It may be very windy and possibly rainy tomorrow, so dress for the weather. Kids will have rain ponchos to wear. Please bring a dry pair of socks and spare shoes to change into afterward. Go Rams!

What are our Learning Targets?

Parents, ask your 6th grader…

  • to share something interesting learned in the mini book
  • about prehistoric peoples 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.
