After a complete wash-out of a weekend, I hope you enjoy your sunny Monday off! I'm taking some time over breakfast to put the finishing touches on our week together.
We have officially finished the 6th grade math lessons I've had planned for this year! The rest of the year we will be reviewing what we've learned to increase our fluency. In addition, we will continue to have extension lessons building upon what we currently know.
Our GMAS preparations will include working together to compete this review booklet. This week we will focus the math section, and next week we will complete the science section. This will take us right up to the week of GMAS starting April 12.
Please don't forget to complete your two weekly Compass Learning choices by Friday. You will not have any other math required assignments this week.
This week we will have our final lessons on outer space. Use your "A Trip Around Our Solar System" choice sheet to guide you along. Your choices are due Friday. You will also have a test on our solar system Friday. Use your study guide to help you prepare.
Don't forget to be reviewing your PIN folders for 10 minutes each evening. You worked hard to organize them all year, so take advantage of this powerful learning tool you've created.
Parent/teacher/student conferences will take place this week. If you haven't returned your request sheet, please do so ASAP. If you need to change your time, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm looking forward to meeting with your family!
This Friday is a "Purple-up" day to to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Bring in $1 and dress in purple to support this cause.
Now, get out there and enjoy the sunshine! I'll see you in the morning,
