Welcome to Room 16! It’s going to be another exciting year for the new 6th grade class! We will make this last year of elementary school one to always remember!
This year, we are unable to have our intermediate Block schedule, which we successfully implemented the last two years to prepare the upper grades for an easier transition to middle school. We will, however, still be preparing for the middle school transition by faithfully using our daily planners and having homework in multiple subjects: English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science. Students will not have homework in all four subjects in one night, but they may have homework in more than two subjects – check the planner!
One benefit of our previous Block schedule is the fact that I taught almost every student in Science last year, so I am quite familiar with them and their various learning styles and unique personalities! I’m looking forward to the students and parents helping me to make this school year the best one ever!
