About the 6th Grade
Welcome to 6th grade! Your child is now officially in middle school. In homeroom, students will be taught Math, Social Studies, and Religion. This year the students will switch classes for English Language Arts (ELA) and for Science. This is a very important year because the students take New York State Exams in ELA and Math. This is also the year that high schools request to see report cards, in terms of grades, behavior issues, lateness, etc.
In Math, the following are critical areas which are designed to bring focus to the standards in the sixth grade:
In ELA, the following are Common Core College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Reading:
In the area of Social Studies, students will learn about the Ancient World. They will focus on ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Asia and Africa. Students will learn about the early forms of government, trade, community and overall living of these ancient people. They will work together to create projects, put on skits and use websites to further their study.
In the area of Religion, students will explore and learn about the Old Testament. They will learn about early prophets, such as Abraham and Moses. In addition, they will learn about other patriarchs and matriarchs. They will use Bibles, the religion textbook and watch religion video clips to learn more about our faith.
I look forward to working with you and your child this upcoming year. To the students, be sure to do your summer assignments, and take your school work seriously. Have a wonderful, safe and blessed summer.
