Hi Parents and Students,
If you are looking at this page, you are most likely prepping for the upcoming school year! I look forward to getting to know you as we embark on the wonderful world of SIXTH GRADE!! Really, 6th grade is a wonderful time. The thing I like most about teaching this grade is that I get to see children who begin their school year a little wary, maybe a little scared, (okay, some are "VERY scared"), and I get to watch them relax, grow, and become confident 11 and 12 year olds as the first weeks and months progress. Believe me, please. The VAST majority of students handle sixth grade well. Those that have some difficulty will have our continuous support and assistance, and we will work as a team with student, parents, guardians, teachers, and staff to make this a good year for all our students.
So that you are aware, I'll only be updating this website periodically. For daily information, please use Google Classroom. In each classroom stream, I will post my plans for the week (which are subject to change depending on circumstances).
If you click on the homework link on the left of this page, there is a link that will take you to the WHITE TEAM HOMEWORK PAGE. Here you will find the current week's homework as well as all past week's homework for the four core classes. All the White Team teachers will have this updated by Monday morning each week.
If you click on the FORMS page, you will find the vocabulary handout we use for our vocabulary cards and my syllabus for the current year.
Also on the left, there is a link to some great websites for my students to use to study their geography! We'll be starting with the world, then the U.S. states. Next, we'll study the Caribbean and Central America and move onto South America. Later in the year, we'll study the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Asia. Students should feel free to look for any newer website games they can use to study geography.
I'm ready for a year full of exciting learning!
