6th Grade Phoenix Team News
Here is a picture of the rainbows that we made while we practiced measuring liquid volume. It was a lot of fun!
Welcome to sixth grade at Springman! My name is Danielle Danno and I teach science on the Phoenix Team. I am excited to get to know the members of this year’s sixth grade class!
Check the classroom news for regular updates on what we are exploring in science. The homework page will be updated daily. If you have any questions, the best way to contact me is through email. Students may also make an appointment to see me before school, during lunch, or during X-Block for extra help.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you to ensure your student’s success!
As the student services teacher, I am the case manager for many students on the team who have IEPs- Individual Education Plans. My job is to collaborate with the rest of the teachers to make sure that these student’s specific needs are being met.
I teach three different classes to some of these students. First, I teach two sections of a resource class each day. During resource, I am working with my students primarily on organization and study skills. I also use resource to encourage and monitor homework completion as well as a time to review concepts from Science, SS, Math, Reading, and Writing. Once or twice a month, I have individual conferences with students to review their IEP goals, help them monitor their own progress in a variety of areas, and then celebrate achievements with them.
I also teach Math. Similar to resource, this class will be taught in a small group environment, with a focus on Common Core Standards and IEP goals. We will use a variety of resources in order to focus on an improvement in overall math skills.
In addition to my own classes, I support students in some general ed math, reading, and writing classes.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding the team or my classes.
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!
Hello, Wildcats! Welcome to 6th grade ELA - we are going to have an awesome year.
Just like you, I'm new at Springman Middle School this year. I can't wait to jump in to reading, writing, learning, and growing together. Check back here every week for updates on what's happening in room 117.
