Language Arts 2016-17

  • Monday, April 24
    Good afternoon,

    Today was all about Book Clubs.

    All Book Clubs met in their groups. A Leader in each group directed discussions, while I checked notes (for a homework grade) and Reader's Responses (for a classwork grade).

    Please note that not having a Reader's Response in class disqualifies you from Book Club. Reader's Responses are to be completed in class if they are not brought in the day they are due. If a Response is done before Book Club meetings end, you may still participate in the meeting for a participation grade.

    If you are EVER absent,  review the Book Club packet to see when each chapter sections are due. Please check in with your Book Club members in your class to see what the next Reader's Response prompt is.

    You are required to bring your Reading Journal and copy of the book to and from Language Arts.

    Chapters packets are posted on the Weebly after we read: http://shwartzla.weebly.com/

    HOMEWORK
    * Read for 30 min.
    * Book Club Reading + Reader's Response due Wednesday
    * Reading Logs due Monday

Art 2016-17

  • Ms. Brooker                                   kbrooker@stamfordct.gov
  • Quarter 4 Jacob Lawrence

    Q4 Essential Question:  

    How do artists create work that communicates feelings about “Social Justice?”

    Students in 6th grade art wrap up the year studying the artwork of African American painter, Jacob Lawrence, and his Migration Series. This timely and complete body of work was painted after he researched in the library to paint species he’d never seen, and places he’d never been to. He also interviewed friends and family who had migrated from the South to hear their stories and create narrative art of their journeys and tales. Infusing his unique abstract style into the geometric and biomorphic paintings which portray the sense of hope, dreams, and also loss - that the migration created in thousands who left the South for their new Northern lives.

  • Q3 Designing a Fantasy Space

    Designing a Fantasy Space Using Math in 6th Grade Art

    In art, students are setting a base budget, researching furnishings, and electronics in catalogs and on the internet to create their ideal room environment. By coordinating this art unit with our math curriculum, the concepts of area, perimeter, length, width, and depth become practical and useful. An additional goal is to make students aware of the planning and finances needed to decorate a home. The importance of education and the resulting increase your income as an adult, is stressed in this unit to help you achieve your fantasy living space someday.
