6th Grade

What are our Learning Targets?

The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, February 14. Our class is leading the Mass, and I hope you can join us in the church at 9:00 AM.

As Wednesday will be a day of serious contemplation and repentant prayer, our class will celebrate Valentine’s Day one day early, on Tuesday, February 13th. The students may wear festive red, pink, and white colors that day, and we will have an optional Valentine exchange. I have encouraged the class to consider making their Valentine notes rather than purchasing packaged ones from the store, as it is more meaningful to both giver and recipient that way.

Parents, ask your 6th grader…

  • to share something interesting learned in the mini book
  • about ancient Greeks 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.
