Mr. Henry's 6th Grade Class

Hello and welcome to my class site. Here you can find useful information about things going on in class, school, and the community or just stuff I may find fun to share.

What we will be doing in 6H this week:

  • Writing
    • This week we will continue to develop our writing skills as we focus in our writing and writing 5 paragraph essays.
  • Reading
    • This week students we get back into the groove of reading on a regular basis, and learning essential reading skills and strategies before we begin our first reading unit. Students are expected to read at least 30 minutes a night.
  • Social Studies
    • This week students are jumping into our third unit as we begin to study the Ancient Egyptians.

A little bit about myself. I am originally from Manitowoc, I then went to school at Augsburg University in Minneapolis where I played soccer and studied education on the side ;) I am entering my first year teaching and I could not be more excited about teaching 6th grade. I think it is one of the most fun age groups and I love the energy, passion, and weird dance moves that they bring with them to class on a daily basis. I will also be teaching Social Studies for the switches. I love to find new ways to make history come alive and be fun and exciting and I cannot wait to get started. I currently live in Green Bay with my wife, Allison, and our 3 yr old mixed black lab, Franklin (what a coincidence!)
