Mr.Chapman - 6th Grade

chapmanThe Sixth Grade would like to give a huge THANK YOU to all the parents who volunteered to help park cars during Fair Weekend.  We enjoyed being a part of the volunteer crew on all three days.  It’s a great experience for these students to be able to lend a hand in raising money for our school as well as our trip to Washington, D.C.  Thank you!
English Language Arts: The sixth grade students have been reading about, and taking notes on, the Egyptian gods and goddesses in preparation for their work on Egyptian mythology.  

We are all quite amazed by the number of deities that were worshiped by the Egyptians, and we are finding costumes as well as their actions to be fascinating.
Math: The Upper Mulitage Veterans have moved onto their second unit of Everyday Math.  Currently they students are learning the US traditional method for multidigit multiplication.
The Sixth Graders just completed the first unit in the program.  We are now moving onto the second unit which will explore multiplying and dividing fractions, as well as understanding ratios.
Science: We have begun our chemistry unit titled “Mixtures and Solutions.” This week students worked on various methods for making and separating mixtures.  We also learned how solutions are made.  Next week we explore ways to separate solutions into the original solutes and solvents.
Social Studies: Students are deeply immersed in researching Ancient Egyptian projects of their choice. Soon we will use their research to develop writing pieces and display projects to demonstrate their learning.
Genius Hour: Genius Hour has begun and the range and enthusiasm for the various projects is impressive!  We are very excited to start using our Makerspace to allow students to create and problem solve in a safe environment.  We even have technology integrator, KarolBeth Glover coming to SCS to help us with the technology-related projects.
