It’s Super-Bowl Weekend!

Dear Sixth Grade Parents and Students,

Happy Super Bowl Weekend!  I hope that you all will enjoy the Super Bowl on Sunday, and may the best team win.

This past week in literature, the Sixth Graders finished reading Greek Gods and Heroes by Robert Graves.  This week, I will read aloud Wings by Jane Jolen, while we wait for our next book order, Tunes For Bears To Dance To by Robert Cormier.  Wings is a detailed and beautifully written story of Daedalus and Icarus.  In addition to this, the Sixth Graders will prepare for the next Literary Terms Test. They will also finish writing the stage play with me in class.

Last Thursday, The Sixth Graders took Part 2 of the History Test regarding the history of Egypt.  I am happy to report that seventy percent of the class scored A’s/A+’s on both Part 1 and Part 2 of the tests.  Well done, Sixth Graders!  I am so proud of you! Those students who did not score high on the test admitted that they did not study for it.  This week in history, we will finish reading Chapter 5, which concentrates on David and Solomon, the Diaspora, and Daniel in the Lions’ Den.

Reminder: It is time again to order your Yearbook 2014.  The cost is $45.  We have ordered 115 copies, so first come, first served.  Order forms are available in the school office.  If you have photographs from this school year, that you would like included in our Yearbook 2014, please send them in to me.  Many thanks!

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Spelling/vocabulary test of Lesson 16 in Wordly Wise.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 16 of Wordly Wise.
  • Complete the CROSSWORD in Lesson 16 of Wordly Wise.
  • Write up the history definitions from Chapter 5 into your history notebook.

Life-transforming ideas have always come to me through books.

Have a SUPER weekend and have a GRAND week ahead.
