Wonders of the World

 Overview

We will learn about the 7 ancient and 7 “new” wonders of the world.  Many subjects and skills will be integrated into this class such as geography, history, reading, and writing.  We will use the book “Seven Wonders of the World” as a guide, and we will also learn through videos.  There will also be some fun projects tied into the lessons.


Supplies

1 folder or binder, Janitell toolkit, and student planner.

Assignments/grades

Students will show their learning verbally through whole-class activities and discussions.  They will also have written assignments in which they will demonstrate their critical thinking.  Homework will typically not be assigned, but students may have to finish assignments at home if they missed class.

Students are responsible for completing their assignments to the best of their ability and for turning them in on time.  Assignment scores will be lowered 10% per day that they are late (not due to absence/illness).

Learner expectations

Demonstrate ROAR:  Respect    Ownership    Achievement     Responsibility

Be a problem-solver, not a problem-maker.

 

 

6th Grade English Language Arts

Overview

Students will build upon their literacy skills specifically in the areas of comprehension and vocabulary. Students will participate in whole-class, small group, and independent reading, and will be required to engage in class discussion to share their thoughts as readers. Focus will be on reading, writing, listening, speaking, and critical thinking. We will be using a new series, Pearson Realize. We will also read several novels throughout the year.

Assignments/Grades

Students will have multiple opportunities to practice and refine literacy skills before they are assessed for a grade.  Students have online access to their book and can read passages as many times as needed to reach comprehension and mastery. Homework will be assigned approximately once a week. Students are responsible for completing their assignments to the best of their ability and for turning them in on time. Assignment scores will be lowered 10% per day that they are late (not due to absence/illness). To access your child’s grade please check Infinite Campus online.
