.   Welcome to The ASK Academy Middle School 6th grade page! Welcome back from the holiday break too! Semester 1 has been filled with exploration, experimentation, reading, writing, researching, and hands on learning plus we had a science fair in there too.

Math with Mr. Tharinger
Scholars in math will spend the month of January finishing up the unit on ratios, rates, and percents. They will then begin working with concepts related to the number line like integers and the coordinate plane culminating with a project on mystery pictures in the coordinate grid.

ELA with Mrs. Bolton
Welcome Back 6th Grade Families! New semester new opportunities to grow and learn. All grades for last semester have been finalized, no changes will be made. But here's the good news, we're going to start fresh this semester.  Novel projects are going to look a little different. I will be providing a list of approved books home with the scholars and I will be posing it in Google Classroom. Projects will be assigned by me and we will work on them in class on Thursdays. Scholars will need to have their approved book every day in class.   We will also need their copy of Hatchet on January 30th.
  Each scholar needs their own copy as they will be writing in the book. This link will take you to Amazon  or Barnes & Noble, used book stores with the correct edition.    
 
One of the biggest pieces of feedback I received last semester was a parent's desire to know about upcoming due dates and communication.  Please sign up for my Remind. Looking forward to a new semester. Welcome to the hive! 🐝
