Math Grade 6 – Students have to complete a sheet on multiplying decimals. A few students were absent receiving extra support so they are not responsible for this work yet. They will complete it tomorrow. This unit includes important foundational math outcomes on multiplying and dividing decimals.
Language Arts (reading) – We started a new novel today called “Number the Stars”. It is a realistic fictional account of a young girl working to protect a Jewish family in Copenhagen, Denmark during the Nazi occupation of World War II.
Language Arts (writing) – Students are working to complete the rough copies of their persuasive writing pieces which I will formally mark for the first term report card. Students have until Friday to complete the rough copy, so please check with them on their progress. I should have marks returned to the students on their vertebrate projects by the end of the week.
