Week of 5/16/16

Dear 6th grade families,

We are wrapping up the children's book project this week.  Your student should be ready to publish their book by Friday, May 20th.  The great part about the online books is that the students have the ability to share the link with friends and relatives - or they can purchase a copy of the book.

This Wednesday is Move-up day!  The 5th grade students will be traveling over to the middle school to learn about our school and get a glimpse at what school will be like for them next year.  We are looking forward to having them visit.

Our final language arts project of the year is a famous person Weebly.  Your student will be creating a website that they can use to record all of their research and information.  This has been another great way for the students to collaborate and share their knowledge with each other, using their digital tools.

Our class has a Twitter account.  You can find us @bengtsongang16, we are
using this as a teaching tool about how to responsibly use and navigate social media
as a young person in society.  We will be posting information and telling about something that
is happening in our classroom.

Have a great week,

Mr. Bengtson
6th Grade
