This week we finished our Civil War/ Reconstruction unit, in addition our trip to the Grove provided a unique opportunity to step back in time for the life of a Civil War soldier. Next we are beginning our Industrial Revolution unit. We will be focusing on how much our lives have changed because of inventions and factories at the turn of the century.
Welcome to 6th grade gifted enrichment reading and writing!
I believe the students will be well-served by the expectations I have of them to learn all that they can; critically question; and treat each other well. I am interested in their hearts and minds and will bring a positive disposition and my best self to them each day during this first year of middle school.
This year students will read several class books and independent reading selections; participate in Socratic circles; write creative and expository pieces; present speeches; analyze grammar; and enrich their vocabulary. I will be sharing more information with you on Curriculum Night in September.
Here’s to a year of intellectual, social and emotional growth!
