Math Grade 6 – Students need to finish exercises 2,4 & 5 on page 91. Some students have struggled with decimal place value today, please so check with your child to ensure they understand the concept of the value of places to the right of the decimal. They have a place value chart in their math duotangs.
Reading – Our guided reading sessions are now underway and by the end of next week I’ll have met with all of the groups. We have also started a novel today, The Bridge to Terabithia, and there will be a number of activities students will be doing as we move through the novel. Today we read the first chapter, and the focus was on figurative language. We took note of examples of onomatopoeia, foreshadowing, metaphors, similes, hyperbole, and personification. We will continue to focus on these concepts along with completing comprehension and vocabulary activities as we finish each chapter. The novel has been posted in the Google reading classroom.
Writing – This week, students began a weekly journal response in the Google writing classroom. Please feel free to log into their school Google account and visit the writing classroom to see what they are doing. After all the posts are completed, I’ll be reading them and providing feedback by commenting on specific areas of their writing right in the classroom. Our initial focus will be on proper sentence structure.
