Good afternoon, Global Citizens and Math Brains!  I had a fun, fast day with you.  Here are the highlights:

  • Social Studies: Today in class we examined the Waiting for War article and started a response about why the period of time between 1885 – 1910 was called “Waiting for War?”  Several of you finished in class, but you are welcome to wrap your response up at home if needed.
  • Math: Today in class we practiced a bit with exponents and started MSG notes on numerical expressions.  There is no homework tonight.  Please make sure you have your MSG, a dry erase marker, and a pen or highlighter for class tomorrow.

See you tomorrow kiddos!  Have a good afternoon.


Hello Kiddos,

What a QUICK day!  Time flies when you are having fun, right? Here are the highlights from today.

Social Studies: Today in class we revealed “whodunit” for the Case of the Missing Student Teacher.  There is no homework tonight.

Math: Today in class we reviewed the percent portion of the study guide.  Tomorrow is the test over percent and measurement conversions.  The answers to the study guide are below.


Hello Global Citizens and Math Brains,

Here are the highlights from today:

Social Studies:  Today in class we continued with the “whodunit” for the case of the missing student teacher. Tomorrow we reveal the answer and move on.  There is no homework tonight.

Math:  Today we reviewed percent problems.  Tonight please finish #1-6 on the “Solve Percent Problems” homework.  Below is a link to a soundless video to help you. 🙂  Also – BRING YOUR STUDY GUIDE TO CLASS.  We will be going over it in class.

Hello Kiddos,

Here are the highlights from today:

  • Social Studies:  Today in class we started to solve a “Whodunit” using primary and secondary sources.  Tomorrow we will continue analyzing the “case” to see who the culprit is.  There is no homework tonight.
  • Math: Today in class we continued solving problems involving percent using models and proportions.  Below are links to videos that should help with last night’s and tonight’s homework.

See you soon.  Have a nice afternoon.

Hello Kiddos,

I will update the blog in a few minutes with a video to help you with your math homework.

There is no SOCIAL STUDIES homework tonight. Tomorrow you will need to decide who to “suspend” based on the evidence from the lunchroom fight situation.


Hello Global Citizens and Math Brains.  I had fun, fun, FUN being your teacher today.  Here are the highlights.

Social Studies:  Today we wrapped up analyzing primary and secondary sources from Christopher Columbus’s discovery of America.  We considered both sources using the APPARTS strategy.  Then you worked in small groups as School Administrators to begin your investigation of a lunchroom fight.  We will continue with that Monday.  Tomorrow you have a quiz, so make sure you study the words on the pink sheet. 🙂

Math:  Today we modeled some “friendly” percent problems using Skittles.  You were also given a study guide for next week’s test (October 11th) on measurement conversions and percent.  We will continue practicing percent next week, so don’t stress out that the problems on the back of the study guide aren’t familiar yet, they will be. 

See you Monday, kiddos!  Be your sweet selves for the sub tomorrow. 


Hello Global Citizens and Math Brains,

It was lovely seeing your bright, shiny 6th grade faces after our week off today!  Thanks to all of you for a WONDERFUL Monday.  Here are some updates from today:

  • Social Studies:  Today we started the unit on European history.  We looked at some vocabulary that we will use when examining historical documents and when we discuss historical events.  The only homework is to finish the environmental issue project if it is not already done.
  • Math: Today in class we practiced converting units of measurement using proportions (equivalent ratios).  There is no homework tonight.

I can’t wait to see you tomorrow at Curriculum Night.  Hope you can make it! 🙂


Good afternoon, kiddos!  Here are the highlights from today.
