Weekly Review written by 6th grade
Our 6th grade humanities class just finished our first test of the year on the Lucy videos. It was fair and not to difficult for us to complete. The next day, we picked another article from Newsweek to present to the class. Before our presentation, we summarized the facts in bullet notes and now we are writing paragraphs about it. We started to read a new book on Greek Gods and Goddesses by W.H.D. Rouse and are comparing it to another Greek book on Gods and Goddesses by D’Aulaires.
This past week we also Skyped with a class from MO. We talked to them about our towns and our school and they responded with information about their school and local area. They were surprised to find out that we call our teachers by their first names and we do not wear uniforms. We all thought it was fun and educational to communicate with them.
All 6th grade students recently took part in family conferences. This is a time where students discuss how they are doing in all subjects with their parents and adviser. Today we looked at a Turkish blog from a university in Istanbul and we are going to comment on their posts.
