Math with Mr. Tharinger
 In 6th grade math we completed our first dungeons and dragons style math unit on numerical expressions and factors. We learned and mastered topics on things like prime factorization and order of operations all while battling with goblins, dragons, and bandits. In September we will take on a new quest this time with a focus on decimal and fraction operations. Contact Dungeon Master Tharinger 🐉
ELA with Mrs. Bolton
  • Our first novel Projects were due on the 1st, and the second one is due 9/30. So far they are so awesome!
  • We launched our first project Climate: The Change We Need please encourage your scholar to have conversations with you about it. 
  • Reminder: Homework goes home every Monday, and is due the following Monday. I have been lenient about late work, but we need to build the expectation that when work is due it is due. Welcome to the hive! 🐝

September looks to be an exciting month. 
Scholars will be focused on the history of discovery as they learn how to use simple tools for measuring and making models. 
They will learn how to draw up basic plans to scale and have classmates make the models based on those design plans. Website for Eng&BioMed
