Sixth Grade

Betsy Nielson

Welcome to 6th grade!


Welcome to 6th grade!  We spend time focusing on the blessings God has provided us as we reconnect with the early people of the Bible.  We dig deeper in the world of reading and writing and start making connections to the world around us through our studies.  We read a variety realistic fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, and science-fiction books, including Wonder, Number the Stars, The Watsons Go To Birmingham-1963, and Towers Falling.

 

We use the Saxon Math series for all of our math classes here at St. Gregory’s.  In addition, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Math are all taught using the Flipped Classroom Model.  The students watch a video on each lesson at home to get a first glance at the content, and then they complete the lesson’s problem set in class.  We also spend some time exploring the Ti-83 plus calculator through various graphing activities. Most of the 8th graders complete Algebra I which prepares them for the Advanced Geometry class offered at Maryville High School.
