A Message from Ms. Laird!:

Welcome to another week in 6th grade! We are at a VERY busy time of the year so be sure to stay focused and keep up with your work. You are going to be doing a lot of independent work over these next few weeks so it is essential for you to keep up with it all. We will continue on with division and multiplication equations in Math and learning about space technology in Science. This week we will be testing your safe-landing apparatuses in Science Lab! There is a lot going on in ELA this week! We will be getting a new spelling list, continuing on with possessive nouns, and analyzing poetry and song lyrics. Religion and Social Studies have us wrapping up chapters with tests and learning about the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Like I said, 6th grade is busy, busy, busy but in a good way!!

Reminder: You need to look over your maps for Social Studies EVERYDAY! Even if it's just for 5 minutes. As the year goes on, we will be studying more and more countries and this is going to become increasingly difficult. Don't fall behind on your maps!

Here are two great practice sites for your map skills!
