Week of May 22, 2017

Most students finished SBAC last week.  Those who have make-ups or tests to finish, will have opportunities during this week.   

HISTORY STARTS NOW, the 6th grade play, is THIS WEEK! Last week, parents were sent an email to reserve their tickets (up to 5 per student), and the link is now open to anyone who wants to reserve additional tickets. If you have not done so, or you need additional tickets, use this link Ticket Reservations  to reserve your tickets now.  

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THIS WEEK:

There is a dress rehearsal on Thursday after lunch, intended for the 4th and 5th grade students to attend.  If you are unable to attend one of the evening performances on that day, then you are welcome to attend the dress rehearsal. Curtain up at 1:15.  Students should return home after school to rest, get a good meal, pack up their water and snacks, and get into costume (and make-up for some of them).  They MUST be back on campus, checking in with the Stage Managers, Kai or Gabe, by 4:30  p.m., and are to remain for both performances and clean up (approximately finished by 8:20 p.m.).  Their snacks and water are for between shows, and students should not leave the campus during that time.

 IF YOUR CHILD IS NOT PLANNING ON ATTENDING THE EVENING PERFORMANCES, PLEASE LET ME KNOW NOW, SO THAT THEY CAN BE REPLACED.  EVERYONE IS IMPORTANT IN THIS SHOW.

We will strike the set on Friday, May 26, at 1:05, and then have a cast party at the shade structure.  Mrs. Dodge and Mrs. Woehrle will provide snacks. Feel free to send any goodies, drinks, popsicles.  They have earned it!!!

See calendar for additional information for this week.



Week of May 8, 2017

SBAC testing will occur over the next two weeks.  If students want to use their personal listening device, we suggest they leave it at school through the end of the school, just in case they have a make-up test to take.

Please note: during testing weeks, students may or may not receive homework.  In any case, we suggest they continue their nightly reading of 40-50 minutes.  There are still many Battle Books to finish.

If you haven't returned the trip slip for Laguna Middle School, coming up this Friday, please do so now.  STUDENTS WILL NEED A LUNCH FROM HOME ON FRIDAY, AS WE ARE LEAVING FOR OUR FIELD TRIP BEFORE LUNCH IS AVAILABLE IN OUR CAFETERIA.  WE WILL EAT AT SCHOOL AT 11:30 A.M.

 



Week of May 1, 2017

Homework this week is centered around their new word sort. Students have been given a daily planner for completing and studying the words for this week.  They should also focus on the following:  Memorizing lines from the play or the songs, reading as many Battle Books as they can, completing all their math homework as assigned. 

Their post On-Demand Writing Assessment is on Thursday.  They will be asked to read up on something that they can write about in an informational essay.  They may also bring that reading selection to school on Thursday, so that they may correctly cite from the text as needed in their essay. 

Look for returned student work going home on Monday.

SBAC testing begins next week (see last week's email from the 6th grade teachers).  If your child has their own personal listening device, please make sure they bring it and leave it at school during testing.

There will be a parent meeting for any parents who wish to help with the play.  The meeting is on Thursday, 3:00, in room 23.




Week of April 24, 2017

Welcome back from Spring Break!  

Students will continue their study of informational text and writing in the same genre. They have a reading test on Tuesday, to wrap up our unit on Argument and Advocacy.  We also will begin a journey into etymology this week (ask your child what that means.)  

On Friday, I will be handing back several pieces of student work for them to share with parents.  Please look for these on Friday.  This will happen next Monday, instead.

Play update: Rehearsals continue this week.  Students should be "off book" by now, which means they have memorized their lines.  Look for a notice/email about an upcoming planning meeting for the 6th grade play.  

Note to Parents:  Thank you for all you do!!!



Week of April 3, 2017

Our Musical Play "History Starts Now" has been cast and rehearsals have begun.  A calendar schedule of rehearsals has been shared with your child.  We would like to have a meeting with any parents who could help with building the set.  If you are interested in helping, please send Mrs. Woehrle an email as to your availability to meet.  vwoehrle@slcusd.org    Thank you

We will be wrapping up our latest research project this week. Students will write an informational essay about teen activism and the specific topic they studied over the past few weeks.  Some of the research articles allow students to write a counter claim, as one would in an argumentative essay.  This demonstrates the overlap of genres in expository writing.  Your children are working hard!

We also have an end of unit reading test on Thursday, which will evaluate their proficiency in Reading Standards 1 and 5 (citing textual evidence and identifying text structures.) Revised

Spelling test on Friday to review an area we need to brush up on!

Mrs. Robson's Gold Rush play on Thursday, and Tiger Pride Assembly with Twin Day on Friday.   Room 23 only: You may bring a board or card game to play in class on Friday.

Happiest of Spring Breaks to you all!  See you on April 17!

We are off to Hearst Castle on Tuesday.  Bring disposable lunch and water bottle.
We return at 3:45.  Please pick up our child on time.


Week of March 27, 2017

What an awesome week we had!  Students in room 23 will be celebrating their successful IEI Showcase this week.  Be sure to ask them to show you the video on their Google Drive.  (Please do not post the video publicly.)

Open House was also great fun!  Everyone loved the food trucks, 6th grade sneak-peak performance for their play, and the wonderful atmosphere of community throughout the school that night.  What a joyful place to be!  

Homework this week focuses on a set of academic vocabulary, and their use in every day language.  We also begin another research adventure in preparation of writing an essay in support of teen activism.  Students will choose their topic from a list supplied in class this week. There is a lot of reading and note-taking, and a writing rubric has been provided.  We anticipate this project to last a few weeks. 

Play Auditions are on Wednesday!  Practice the song "Corner of the Sky" and study the "sides" (audition scripts) to prepare for your audition.  Everyone auditions, as it is part of the Visual and Performing Arts experience.  Those who wish to audition for the rap (optional) may use their own (appropriate) rap or get a copy of the sample from Mrs. Woehrle.

Academic Vocabulary List:  
transition
continuity
consistency
rational

Week of March 20, 2017

A very busy week, indeed.  We are preparing for both Open House and the IEI Showcase.  Students have projects that are due this week.  They may also need to practice the pitch they give when they show you their products from Open House and in the IEI Lab. 

Open House, Thursday, March 23 starts at 5:00 with dinner! Actually, we will have three food trucks on campus for families to purchase dinner.  There will be a meeting in the MPR at 5:30 (with a teaser performance from the 6th grade play at 5:30) and room visitations at 6:00 p.m.   New and prospective parents will be visiting our rooms at 6:45, following a short presentation in the MPR at 6:30.

If your child has signed up to be an Open House Ambassador, they will be staying for the new and prospective parents/families.

Don't forget to check out our IEI project in the IEI Lab!





Week of March 13, 2017

Please return Middle School Electives forms by Friday.

This week, we will be busy finishing up our IEI Project.  We are in need of a couple of supplies:  10 tent posts, black electrical tape, orange electrical tape.  If you can send this by Wednesday at the latest, that would be very much appreciated.  

Tiger Pride Assembly on Friday, 1:35.

Homework for ELA this week will be based on individual student need to complete projects.

Week of March 6, 2017

Minimum Days all week (dismissal at 1:00).  Parent conferences in afternoons.  For students who do not have a conference, the report card will be sent home on Friday, with their middle school electives choices form.  These forms are due back by March 17.  

Band will meet 1:00-2:00 on Monday and Tuesday.

We need your help on our IEI project.  We are in need of cardboard, balsa wood, and any old and used outdoor games, or even pieces, such as croquet, bocci ball, mini golf, etc.  These could even come from yard sales and thrift shops.  In addition, we could use some help with supervision as students are working on separate projects around the school.  Please send me an email if you can help.  We will resume IEI building after parent conference week.

Upcoming events:

    Thursday, March 23  Open House

    Friday, March 24  IEI Presentations (closed to parents due to space restrictions - so, be sure to visit the IEI projects in the IEI Lab at Open House.)

    Auditions for the 6th grade play will be the week after Open House.  If you are interested in helping with the play this year, we sure could use you.  There are several areas where we need assistance:  Set building & painting, supervision of student groups during rehearsals, backstage parents to help keep students quiet and supervised during performance, pre-show concession stands.  At this time we do not anticipate any additional costume or prop needs.  This will be determined once we get going on our rehearsals.  There will be NO after school rehearsals.  This year, we are collaborating to create a project based learning activity.  Students are involved in all aspects of the play, including writing, set design, choreography, technical production, and of course, acting, singing and dancing!  If you would like to help, please send an email to Mrs. Woehrle.





Week of February 27, 2017

Conference confirmation forms will go home this week.
Parent conferences are next week, with minimum day schedule all week (1:00 dismissal).

The sixth grade teachers are meeting with Laguna Middle School counselors on Monday morning to discuss enrollment for fall.  We will present the electives options to you at the conference, or send the form home if you are not having a conference.  Please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions about the classes at LAMS. Also, please let me know if you are planning to enroll your child at Los Osos Middle School in fall. 

Part 2 of the Ancient Civilizations Research Project will be sent home on Friday.  It is due March 20.

Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Teach, starting this Friday.  Also on Friday evening is our Chili Cook-Off in the MPR at 5:30.  Hope to see you there!



Week of February 20, 2017

Short week this week.  Thursday and Friday are early dismissal days (1:00 pm).

Both rooms 22 and 23 will have the same homework for ELA/SS for the next few weeks.    We are also working on our Ancient Civilization Research Report/Projects.  Students will be researching an innovative technology from Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome, and then create a physical representation (product) for display.  The research notes and report will be written in class. The product will be done at home.  The directions for the product will be sent home next week.  Our focus will be on research this week. 

This week they start Latin prefixes.  There is a handout to complete by Friday.

Also due by Friday is an argumentative essay using the notes we took in class last week.  The subject is: Should we put more exploration into Oceans or Space?  Students had a long list of resources and spent much of their ELA time last week reading and taking notes from these resources.

Parent Conferences are week of March 6.




Week of February 13, 2017

We are close to the end of the trimester, and you should expect conference appointment forms from the teachers.  The second trimester does not require a conference if your child is at or above grade level expectations in core content and school behaviors. You will be notified if this is the case.

The focus on homework for ELA this week is to practice those Greek affix meanings for the test on Friday.  Students will receive back all of their prior Greek affix homework, and are to use it to create flashcards this week.  

As you know, rather than holding onto student work the second trimester, I have been giving it back to students, and asking them to keep everything in their binder so that you may review their work.   Another way you can check on their work is to have your child log into the Google Classroom link where many papers and tests are scored.  Checking their daily in-class work is a matter of asking them to show you their Google Drive, and what they've been working on lately.  Of course, I'm always a little sad when I find student work in the trash can at the end of the day.  If it's really important to you that they show you everything, please let them know.  6th graders are on the cusp of independent thinking, and may seem rebellious when they are actually just testing the waters on independence. 

Thanks to the parents who have been joining us as chaperones on the last two Cal Poly field trips.  If you are interested in chaperoning the Hearst Castle trip on April 4, please let me know, as there are limited tickets available. 




Week of February 6, 2017

Greek affixes this week:  archy, geo, path (patho, pathy), morph, peri
Students are to find 10 words that use each of these affixes.

BABY PICS???  Don't be left out of the yearbook!!  Get those in this week!!!

"Taste of the World" field trip to Cal Poly is on Wednesday this week.  Please bring a sack lunch, as we are leaving early for this field trip and will not be able to utilize the cafeteria.  Also, wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a water bottle.  We go, rain or shine!

Robot Assembly Monday afternoon

Electives on Thursday afternoon

Core 2 has a social studies test on Friday, on Ancient Greece.

Monday, Feb 13 is a holiday, no school.

Tuesday, Feb 14 is Valentine's Day.  We will do a craft in class, then students may exchange Valentines right after lunch.  We have Music at 1:30, so we really don't have time to do any more than that. 





Week of January 30, 2017

Baby Pics are due (electronically) by this Wednesday.  This is an important page to complete for our yearbook, and has publisher deadlines.

Greek affixes due Friday (find ten words for each affix, OR, write a short story with the 4 affixes)
(hyper, hypo, endo, exo)

Electives resume Thursday.

Friday is a walking field trip to Spanos Theatre to watch a Jazz Reach program called, "Yes, Indeed!"

Mrs. Woehrle and Mrs. Dodge have guest teachers on Thursday. Important reading pre-test will be given on that day.   It's also crazy hair day!!!

We have another fabulous field trip coming up called, "Taste of the World,"  at Cal Poly. This will give students a multicultural experience in foods, arts and crafts, and other cultural phenomena.  Please return sign trip slips asap.  Note that lunch is earlier that day to accommodate the travel time.

You may have heard that lunch on Fridays will be 30 minutes earlier from now on.  This is because of an archery program at SLOCA, and our desire to keep your children safe.  We simply don't want to run into each other on the field, and who could argue with that?  Safety First!!!



Week of January 23, 2017

The On-Demand Writing Assessment is Tuesday, this week.  

Greek Affix homework is due Friday.  Same assignment as the first week we did this.  The affixes for this week are : logy, bio, tomy (tom), pod.

Room 23 will be finishing up their study of Ancient Greece this week (test on Friday).  Then, they will start a three week unit in science with Mrs. Dodge.

Please look for the flyer asking for your child's baby picture for the yearbook.  The deadline is Wednesday, Feb 1.



Week of January 16, 2017

Welcome back from another 4 day weekend.  
This week's Greek affix assignment is to write a funny story or poem with words that use the affixes in group 2 [macro, micro, a (an), mono (mon), poly]. 

Room 23 is studying Ancient Greece, and this week we will look at Greek mythology.

Some reminders for this week:  Electives on Thursday; Tiger Pride Assembly on Friday, 1:05


Week of January 9, 2017

Happy New Year!   A big thank you to all the parents and students who made our holiday party such a hit, especially to Julie Gates, for coordinating, the Chiang and Sajad families for donating a wonderful luncheon.  Thank you all for the gifts, cards, etc.  That was beautiful!

As we start the new year, we will be reminding students of their trimester goals, which they should have taped in the front of their binders.

Room 23 will embark on a three week journey through ancient Greece, while Room 22 will explore the world of cells.  After that, we will rotate the classes for another three weeks.

All students will be studying Greek affixes, and will have homework over the next few weeks.  We are also finishing up our argumentative literary essays, and then will move on to Argument and Advocacy in our reading program.  Students are encouraged to continue to read the literature books that we ordered this year, and some students are still required to keep a reading log.

We will likely begin exploring our ideas for the Innovation Exploration Initiative (IEI) this week.  More on that later.




Week of December 19, 2016

To view student test results from the reading test on Friday, have your child show you their Google Classroom account.  The scores range from 1-4, just as they do on the report card.  The score in the circle at the top right of the page is for standard 6.9, Comparing and Contrasting texts.  The score in the private comments is for standards 6.2, Summarize Main Idea and Details.  We will now be going full force into writing Literary Argumentative Essays. 

Kids Run Teach Elementary on Monday, December 19!!!
Edward Chiang will be your teacher today for room 23, and Kylie Meas for room 22.  

Holiday Party this Thursdays begins at 11:30 with lunch. 


Week of December 12, 2016

As a reminder, parents and students should check both this page and the Classroom Calendar for both Mrs. Woehrle and Mrs. Dodge for homework, project due dates, and school events.

Students will be taking an end-of-unit assessment this Friday, Dec. 16, regarding complex text in nonfiction reading.  Ideally, students are studying how to summarize main ideas and details, state why a portion of text is important (why the author chose to include it), and compare and contrast two nonfiction texts in their content, perspective, and craft/structure.

After the test this week, students will be assigned another fiction book from our newest book order.  We will refocus our efforts on writing literary essays through most of January.  

Students will be taking pop quizzes in their Google Classroom each day to prepare them for the reading test.  At the end of the week, have your child share the results of these quizzes with you.  The results of the reading assessment on Friday will be sent home before Winter Break.  

Room 23 is in Science with Mrs. Dodge through December.  Room 22 is with Mrs. Woehrle, and are learning about the ancient Egyptian culture. 

Thank you for all you do to make our classroom, students, and school such an honorable place to work.  

THIS IS THE LAST WEEK OF OUR TOY DRIVE.  THANK YOU FOR SENDING NEW TOYS FOR THE NEEDY CHILDREN IN OUR DISTRICT!


Week of December 5, 2016

The following link is an excellent article from Harvard Library, on the reading strategies necessary for success at university.  It's no wonder our Common Core has developed in this way.  And although college is not for everyone, the obvious benefits from acquiring excellent reading strategies will serve our children well as they take on their fast-moving futures.  



I share this with you so that you may understand the complexity of reading that we are asking of your children.  They are working hard in class, and our expectation is that they take those strategies with them as they extend their reading outside of the classroom, especially in their nightly reading.  You should expect to see your child reading more nonfiction text, and taking longer to read it.  Hopefully, they will use the strategy of re-reading to ensure comprehension.  You may not see papers of homework, but know that your child should be working on reading complexity at home every night.

I have scheduled the end of unit reading assessment for Friday, December 16.  If your child will not be here that day, please let me know so that I can have them take it earlier.

Please check our calendar for specific times for the following:

Tuesday, December 6  Family Engineering Night
Friday, December 9, Awesome Awards
Wednesday, December 14, Mini Mall
Thursday, December 22, Class Holiday Party


Week of November 28, 2016

Welcome Back from Thanksgiving break!

Parent conferences were great!  I really enjoyed meeting parents that I had not met before.  Our 6th grade class this year is really talented, creative, innovative, and intelligent.  It is an honor to teach your children.

What's in store for December????

As part of our community service to SLO each year, Teach Elementary hosts the Big Brothers/Big sisters Holiday Party in our MPR, which will be held this Saturday, December 3.  Please see the flyer sent home requesting volunteers to help with this party. Students also want to donate inexpensive prizes for our games. If they wish to do so, keep the items at less than 15 cents each. Most classes give out candy, and that's fine, too. Donations must be received by Friday.  It's a wonderful feeling to give back to others in need.  We enjoy this event every year! 

Please check our calendar for specific times for the following:
Saturday, December 3  BIGS Holiday Party
Tuesday, December 6  Family Engineering Night
Friday, December 9, Awesome Awards
Wednesday, December 14, Mini Mall
Thursday, December 22, Class Holiday Party

Now that I've met with all parents and have shared a lot of student work, I will be handing back work to students from now on.   They are instructed to keep it in their binder, in the ELA section, as they will refer to it over the trimester.  They should show you their work whenever they get something back. 

With four weeks left until winter break, we will be working hard to finish our reading unit on complex nonfiction text.  Students will have books to read and notes to take every night (Mon - Thur) in non fiction, and are encouraged to continue reading Battle Books every day of the week.  The final test in this unit will be on Tuesday, December 20.  We continue to write over the next 4 weeks, focusing on the Literary Argument.  Ask your child to show you their work in their Google Drive, in the ELA folder.  

In Social Studies, Mrs. Woehrle's class will finish up their Egyptian studies and museum work this week, and then Mrs. Dodge's class will join me for the last 3 weeks for Egypt.  My students will then be in the Engineering unit with Mrs. Dodge.

Week of October 31, 2016

BOO!  YA?
Be safe tonight.  No homework!  (Now, that's a treat!)

Just a four day week, and we are wrapping up end of trimester assessments, and starting new units of instruction.  Students are working on goals this week, as they see the end of the first trimester within sight.  

Mrs. Woehrle's class returns to homeroom for a study of Ancient Egypt. Mrs. Dodge's class will wrap up their Ancient Civilization presentations during language arts this week. 

A big thank you to our hard-working students.  They have taken on a lot of rigor this year, and are still a bit in shock.  I believe you will see great improvement and maturity in your child's work over the next few months.  


Week of October 24, 2016

Our biggest challenge this week will be the final Project-based Learning presentations from Room 22, and the reading assessments for both classes.  There will also be a quiz on context clues on Friday.

FAMILY ENGINEERING NIGHT HAS BEEN CANCELLED THIS WEEK.  WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN WE CAN RESCHEDULE.


Week of October 17, 2016

This week we wrap up our book clubs and start assessments.  The only homework in ELA this week is the last night of book club preparation (Monday night, due Tuesday).  After that, anything that can help you with writing and reading narratives should help you for the exams on Thursday and Friday.  For example, read a battle book!

Heads up on two days with no school coming up (sort of like holidays?)  Friday, November 4, is a day for teachers to work, and students to stay home.  Also, Veteran's holiday this year falls on Friday, November 11.  In addition, the week of November 14 is minimum days for parent conferences, and the following week (Nov 21) is off for the Thanksgiving holiday.

We have only two weeks left in our Tiger Challenge.  This is (hopefully) the one and only fundraiser this year that supports our unique program for 4th-6th grade students.  Now that our kiddos are back from camp, you can see why this is so worth the fundraising.  But, we still have a ways to go to fund our field trips, school play, IEI projects, etc.  Thank you for continuing to raise funds and support Teach Elementary! 








Week of September 19, 2016

 Teaching can be so challenging:


Last year, my class was introduced to the 3 Doodler, 3-d printing pen.  This year's class will also start using this innovative tool in the classroom.  To give you all a peek at what students will learn, click the link below:
