Sixth Grade | Kimberly
Welcome to the KMS 6th Grade Weekly Update!
We are pushing our way through the book Wonder. Three new vocabulary words were given to the students last week. I am trying to break the list of words into small chunks so each week three words will be introduced. Students should be at 75% of their AR goal of 15 points. A homework assignment will be sent home each Monday and due on Friday. The assignment should help with reading and comprehension and is worth 10 points. Thanks in advance for your assistance in reminding your student to read each night and assist with the homework assignment.
This week we will be starting Chapter 2 “Arithmetic Strategies and Area” in our CPM book. (Remember this is available online and has MANY helpful tools for homework and clarification!) The tentative sections are as follows (these are subject to change according to teacher discretion):
Monday- Pre-Test (and Finish Friday’s Test) and Chapter 2 Vocabulary
Tuesday- 2.1.1 How can I represent data?
Wednesday- 2.1.2 How else can I represent data?
*This Review Preview homework will be due on Friday due to Early Release
Thursday- 2.1.2 How else can I represent data CONTINUED
Friday- 2.2.1 What else can I measure?
Remember that there is homework EVERYDAY at the end of each section called “Review Preview,” and is due the following day! (If student Group work is efficient they could start on the homework during class and could potentially finish it but, highly unlikely.)
If you lose the Homework paper it can always be answered on a separate sheet of paper and be found online. Come to Math Night tomorrow as we discuss this new Curriculum and how it works!

Mrs. Anderson is absent today, Monday, October 15, and upon her return we will send out her information. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email.
We will be starting a introduction unit to Weather, Climate and different types of climates. Please take time to review notes with students. Notes for this topic will be shared on canvas on Tuesday. We will be working on these Monday and Tuesday.
We begin the week in STEM with a continuation of the pulley lab we started on Friday. Your student is learning how to calculate the mechanical advantage of a pulley and then they are building one. We continue this simple machines theme and study about Screws, followed by the wheel and axle.
