    Social Studies
    Our final unit of the year is Latin America. We continue to connect the 5 themes of geography with the many countries of our neighbor to the south. I am piloting a new "techbook" from Discovery Education that has many on-line resources that adds a new layer to the geography class. I have been using new maps, videos, and articles that are enhancing the program. There will be one more mini-project for the end of the year and most of it will be done in class.
    Writing
    Students are presently writing a "choice" story. They are either rewriting a former story or writing a new one. They chose the genre they wanted to write (narrative, expository or argumentative), and are peer and teacher editing to write their very best. There has been amazing growth this year and I'm very proud of the work students have done.
    Students in my writing class are expected to write for 15 minutes (1 page) in their writing journals at least 3 times a week. They can write about any subject or idea. With the end of the year fast approaching, I'm finding some students aren't reaching that goal. Please check in with your child to be sure it's being done.
    We continue to use Google Classroom for many writing assignments. Most of these will be done in class, but all students can work on their writing at home too.

    Writing
    The last period of the day for all grade 6 students is writing with their homeroom teachers. We are presently working on argument in literary essays. We are reading different stories and analyzing characters to create arguments about the motivations of why characters do what they do.
