14 Apr 2017 No CommentsAt last we have finished both our informational essays and our sixth grade math books! Wow on both counts. In writing we are now turning our attention to a little poetry writing before we embark upon our Argument essays. Students are working on some personal poems that help them reflect on their identity as well as some of their hopes, fears, and dreams. It is a refreshing change from the challenges of MLA format and thesis statements.
For math, we will be doing all manner of review and it is now important for each student to be honest with his or herself and really “brush up” on the skills that still seem challenging for them. Student responsibility in this area is critical as the expectation is that they will be able to work with algebraic expressions and equations, distance, rate and time, graphing coordinates, areas of triangles, rectangles, parallelograms and trapezoids, volume and surface area, percents, decimals and fractions. Seventh grade is part 2 of this year’s math.
