SOCIAL STUDIES: (Ms. Ellis A-13) Students will take the SS final exam on Wed, June 13th. They will receive a study guide next week and we will spend some time in class reviewing. Additionally we will continue to discuss Asia and begin Africa.

READING: ( A-13) Students have been working on their iReady tests. We will continue reading the Uglies.

LANGUAGE ARTS: (Mrs. Sullivan A-15)  Final drafts of autobiography/biography essays are due Monday, June 11th. Students should be ready to present their “paper bag presentation” on Thursday, June 14th. These oral presentations will be conducted in front of a small group in the classroom. Students will continue reading short stories from the Literature Anthology. These short stories share a similar theme to the novel we finished in March, Home of the Brave. Students will be making connections between these stories, Home of the Brave,  and nonfiction articles on Newsela.

READING: (A-15) We continue to read the novel, If I Had One Wish.

MATH: (Mrs. MacCurtain A-14) Students will finish their Geometry Book Project on Book Creator (ipad). This is worth a quiz grade. They will also have a Geometry Vocabulary quiz.  Students will be learning how to add and subtract integers. This is not a 6th grade topic but will really help them in 7th grade. There will be a quiz on this concept.  If there is time, students will be working on an end of the year project. They will be given a topic that they have learned about this year and they will have to “teach” their classmates about the concept. This will be a graded assignment.  

READING: (A14) Students are enjoying Freak The Mighty.  Another five chapter quiz will be given.

SCIENCE: (Mrs. Richardson D-103) Next week we will continue our study of Geologic Time.  The students will explore the changes of Earth’s organisms from Precambrian Time through the Cenozoic Era.  We will learn how this timeline is divided into units. Students will create their own timeline. We will apply our knowledge of Plate Tectonics as this theory possibly contributed to the extinction of many organisms.  *The science final is scheduled for Tuesday, June 12th. A study guide will be given and we will review during class time.

READING: (D-103)  We will be finishing up the novel, Out of My Mind.  This uplifting story has generated great discussion amongst the students.  A story about resilience, strength and kindness.
