Math News
  • This year Mrs.Spring will teach both Math 6 and Math 7. If you are taking Math 6, we have a new 2018 Go Math book.  For Math 7 students, we will be using the Glencoe 7th Grade Math book. 
  •  Students in both Math 6 and Math 7 will have a Math Binder. We will NOT have IMN composition books this year.
  • All new lesson work as well as "homework" from the book will be done in class this year. Students may bring their Math Binders home to study for quizzes and tests.  
  • Math homework this year will be different. Students will have Simple Solutions work to complete on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. Simple Solutions helps students practice a variety of skills learned in previous grades and introduces new math ideas. Simple Solutions is designed to provide challenge and build confidence in math. Check the Looping Homework Calendar for the SS # that is assigned. Students will also be expected to complete assigned Math Study Island, which will begin once students are assigned their log in codes.

Our current content area topic is Prehistory and Ancient River Civilizations. Students may watch this PBS NOVA video (ideally with a parent) about Otzi the Iceman, the oldest preserved human body ever recovered. To receive extra credit, they must write a one page summary of the video. This summary must include information only found in this longer video (we watched a very short version of this story in class).
 
 
 
 
 
 
  • Challenge Science is available on Google Classroom for students interested in learning more about science topics. Extra credit in science will be available using Challenge Science for the remainder of looping (6th grade).The class code is 2ra8yn 
  • All of the information about Challenge Science is written on the Google Classroom page. Please read the directions carefully. Students must turn in 2 documents via Google Classroom for each extra credit assignment. Poor work will not be accepted for extra credit. Two submissions are allowed each quarter. Each excellent submission will be entered as a 100% quiz grade in Progress Book.
