Math Grade 6 – Our unit on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals will soon be coming to an end. We are still working on dividing decimals, and students have to complete exercises 1 and 2 on page 111. I will be looking to have a quiz on this unit next week.
Language Arts (writing) – Students are working to complete the good copy of their persuasive essays as they are due on Thursday. Please check with your child on their progress. We have been working on this persuasive text unit of study for the past three weeks, and I look forward to the final product by the students. The expectations have been clearly outlined as we have gone over mentor texts and studied the proper components of this text form. Students also have a checklist they can use to ensure they have all the necessary elements included in their essay.
