What's Happening in Sixth Grade

From Mr Sinclair

In Sixth Grade Language Arts students are finishing up a unit on persuasion in television commercials. Right now students are writing their persuasive essays and will be peer editing with each other before revising. Students are also writing and will be performing their own television commercials using some of the persuasive techniques they have learned about in commercials.

In math sixth grade students have been very busy developing an understanding of variables in verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs. Students are now at the point where they are applying what they have learned to be able to analyze variables in verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs, and then write one and two step equations.
