Circles!

6th graders have been learning how to find the circumference and area of circles, as well as the names of circle parts. One lovely day, we decided to test our knowledge with some chalk drawings! 

Last Art Class of 2018

Today was our final art class, we finished drawing our dream rooms. It has been another great year at Garden City Arts and we thank Katy for being a fantastic teacher!

Liberal Field Trip!

Ancient Greece

As we conclude our unit over Ancient Greece, students were able to show off their newly gained knowledge. Each student/group chose a topic that interested them and found a way to create a project that would help teach the class more about their choice. Below are the results! 

Science, Science, Science!

This quarter in science, we began our unit on Earth and Space Science. We've done several investigations to show erosion, the water cycle, and water conservation. 

King Tutenramen

We are 20 days into the mummification of King Tutenramen! It has been smelly, yet fun. We are learning a lot about ancient Egyptian practices and make observations each time we change the salt solution. Stay tuned for day 40! 

Our Halloween Party!

Kindergarten Buddies

Today during Buddy Reading, we tried something a little different. Kindergarteners worked in teams to try to build a tower using spaghetti and tape. They had to put a marshmallow on top! They did an amazing job of discussing ideas and building unique structures. It was a lot of fun!

Check Your Grades Online!

www.gradebookwizard.com

Don't forget to check your grades at least once a week. You can also see if you have any late assignments, missing work, or low assignments that need to be corrected. I would suggest checking on a Tuesday when graded work is taken home. 

Edmodo

Sixth graders will continue using Edmodo this year. It's primary use is during reading groups, but there is also a class page for students to ask questions to each other or myself.
