Mrs. Rodrigues – 6th Grade
English Office Hours: Gr. 4, Friday 7:45AM-8:10AM Gr 5-6, Tuesday 7:45AM-8:10AM
We have been very busy in 6th grade since the start of the year! Students are working hard to develop the skills that they are learning in class.
Religion: We will begin to study Advent and Christmas in preparation for the season ahead. Students will participate in Mass on December 1st and in one of our Advent Prayer services this month.
Vocabulary: Students will complete Units 4-6 in this coming quarter. Please check books for grades.
ELA: We will soon begin a thorough study of Verbs in Chapter 3 of Voyages. We will also give focus to letter writing in this quarter.
Reading: Students will read “A Christmas Carol,” by Charles Dickens. We will focus on the “coming of age” in the character, Scrooge. Students will complete two-column notes during class and they will be working on digital activities in our Google Classroom.
A couple notes:
- Students are starting to run out of required materials (black pens, red pens, pencils, loose leaf paper.
- After the Thanksgiving break, we will do a reset on rules and expectations to assure that we are all on the same page and working as a unit.
- Weekly updates will now be posted primarily on Google Classroom – please check there regularly.
I am truly enjoying this year with my 6th graders. It is amazing to see their development as the year progresses. Please feel free to reach out at any time throughout the year!
