PERSONAL MESSAGECURRICULUM:In Grade 6, instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and (4) developing understanding of statistical thinking.
Supplies: Parents of 6th graders, your children need paper, pencils (sharpener) colored pencils, compass, notebook (3 ring binder) with separators for each class and a positive attitude.
Parents I tell the students that they are responsible for having those basic supplies every day. Also, the mechanical pencils are more problem than help as the children spend more time repairing them than they do on Math. Please ensure that your children have enough pencils and paper to get them through the day. Some of them lose or give away several pencils a day and I cannot re-supply them. Also, they need a place to keep their pencils secure. I have tried and I end up giving away a dozen a day.
Thank you for your support
