6th grade Science

Monday to Friday - This week 6th graders need to finish EMM Lesson 6 (they need to answer the three reflection questions and show them to me before they can complete the quest).

This week's focus is on DISCOURSE. I showed students the definition and focused on how it's having a formal discussion on a topic either verbally, face to face, or written, which can mean online. Some students have blogged enough that they are ready to comment on other blogs and have a discussion on the class topics we are studying! Some students have also used our online Shivtr discussion forum enough that they are ready to begin responding to other's posts and discuss what we are learning that way!

Students will be working on their 3D GameLab Available or In-Progress quests in class. It's also their last chance to catch up on the class Star Trek story, the Adventures of the Starship Equinox, before the winter break.

1st per set the traps on Monday and retrieved them to ID and count fish on Tuesday.

HW - None unless you need to do some catch up or make up work.

When we get back from winter break we will do some learning about simple machines before we get to EMM Lesson 7 because simple machines ties in nicely to the ancient civilizations they are learning about for Market Day (happening on Jan 30, 2015!).

Have a great winter break!
6th grade Exploratory
WoW in Schools

(This is my 1st period class come back for 4th period.)

Monday to Friday - This week students will be playing WoW and continuing their character's adventure everyday except Wednesday. Wednesday students will do their typing lessons and work on their hero's journey assignments.

HW - None
Email me with any questions.
