Today kicks off the start of new material being taught in all classes 🙂 I am really excited for the novel we are going to begin reading.
Here is a copy of this week’s work list. A copy is ALSO posted in Google Classroom.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rxUAtJYqGIXt3jKhtR6dhSlBPT0h6JA2tHL8RJCJrkM/edit?usp=sharing
All 6th graders will be reading “The Crossover” by Kwame Alexander for the next few weeks. A PDF (copy you can read on an electronic device) is in iLEARN; I will also post a copy in Google Classroom. ALL WORK RELATED TO THIS NOVEL WILL BE POSTED IN iLEARN. We will discuss the readings during our live lessons
Live lessons will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, at 10 am and 1 pm. Students only need to attend TWO of the four sessions offered each week. It is important that students do the reading for our novels BEFORE the live lessons, so we can use this time to discuss. A link for the Google Meet will be shared prior to the meeting in Google Classroom.
Advisory will have a weekly google meeting on Fridays from 11:30 to noon. A link will be shared in the Advisory Google Classroom.
I am available via Remind or email from 8 am to 4 p.m. After 4 p.m., I promise you will receive an answer to your question within 24 hours.
Please add yourselves to our classroom Remind account! I will be sending important information throughout the year via Remind text. Use the link: rmd.at/h8cchc OR text the message @h8cchc to 831-613-1863
Email is the best way to contact me. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
