     E L A with Mrs. Beh 

    We have started a unit on MYTHOLOGY that will last until the end of the school year.  Students are reading the extended text, The Lightning Thief, closely and working to analyze each section of the text.  

    This unit has a heavy focus on group work, specifically TRIADS, where students work in groups of three. 




     Science with Ms. Kanaley

    We are working on the use of microscopes and look forward to seeing live specimens under close examination.  We will soon start ecology.

     Social Studies with Mr. LeClair

    ANCIENT EGYPT TEST Friday, April 12th!  Study! 

      Math with Mrs. Meyer

    We are currently working on our GEOMETRY Unit. In this unit, we are learning how to determine the area of various polygons, how to find the volume of a rectangular prism, and how to find surface area using nets. We are also reviewing the process of plotting points on a coordinate plane.

    Anticipated GEOMETRY Unit Test Date: May 8-9

    Students put forth great effort on the NYS Common Core Math Assessment! I was proud to see 

    students applying various problem solving strategies that we have practiced throughout the year on the test. I am PROUD of our sixth grade Rhinos!
