Hello Grade 6 community,
I wish you all a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Please enjoy the break from school. Read every day and get lots of fresh air!
Grade 6 students, remember lonely and alone are very different. How did you help someone who was lonely this weekend? How did you avoid feeling lonely? Did you enjoy some alone time?
When students return next Tuesday we will continue to work on the novel study “The King’s Equal.” All students should be working on chapter 4 course work. If students are behind I encourage them to spend a little bit of time setting a goal and making a plan to catch up this weekend. Please check planners to see if your child might require some support.
We are starting a new area of study in Science next week that includes systems of the human body! In Social Studies students will wrap up their exploration of the election this week and move into exploring NGO’s working around the world to support human rights and provide relief to those in need. In Math, we continue to explore place value but we have moved to the right side of the decimal expanding our understanding of very small numbers. In French students have been working on getting comfortable with simple dialogue and greetings. In Bible and Daily Devotions we continue to explore how Jesus demonstrates love to those around him in the Bible and how we can do the same at school and beyond.
Genius Hour is a few weeks away from its start but I wanted to give you a heads up. It is coming! Please consider saving paper towel rolls, cardboard and other material you think might be helpful to donate to your student or the class. I can tell I have a creative class this year, I can’t wait to see what unique and wacky projects they will create!
I am so thankful for the students in my class this year! It is a privilege to teach such amazing children.
Did you know you can access your students grades online to monitor their progress? You have already received an email and new password allowing you access to your students portal. If you didn’t, please contact Mrs. Kraubner for support.
Grades reflect student’s learning journey, sometimes letters and numbers do not give a full picture of how hard your child is working or how much they are learning. I encourage you to take a look if you are curious and check in by email or set up a meeting to discuss further.
Please note, I have added a few codes to my system this year that you may not be familiar with. I will enter grades traditionally but I also will have the following codes:
E-exempt (no grade given due to extenuating circumstance)
Ex-extending (student has gone above and beyond expectations and has made unique connections to other areas of study or beyond the classroom, student demonstrates mastery of concept)
Pro-Proficient (students are meeting all expectations of the assignment and demonstrate confidence in subject area)
De-Developing (students are able to show some ability but require support or an example to master concept)
Em-Emerging (student is beginning to show awareness of concept and learning requirements but requires consistent support)
No spelling this week due to a short week.

Bible Memory Verse:
Most students are doing very well with the entire verse. Next week we will focus on the importance of the Lord’s Prayer in our lives.
