Class Update for August 2014

Ms. Palm 6th Grade Classroom

August 19, 2014

Dear Parents of Sixth Grade Students,

Welcome to sixth grade! This is my 3rd year teaching 6th grade at Nash Middle School. This year, I will be teaching Science to all sixth graders and Social Studies to my homeroom. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Olivet Nazarene University. Even though I grew up in a western suburb of Chicago called Elmhurst, I have truly enjoyed becoming part of the Central community over the past two years and look forward to another year investing in the Central schools. I look forward to teaching and learning from your students this school year!

I will be sending home a welcome letter with your student that includes important information on grades, homework, and textbooks. Please read over that letter with your child and return the required pages with your child as soon as possible. Homework will also be starting soon so please begin reviewing their assignment notebook with them so they can begin the year successfully.

We will be spending these first two weeks learning and practicing the classroom routines. In science, we will also be reviewing safety equipment and lab safety rules. At the end of these lessons, students will be having a lab safety quiz as well as signing a lab safety contract that acknowledges their agreement with the rules. Students will also learn about the scientific method and complete a lab to practice this skill. To help students become better skilled at these topics, I have included the following websites below that students can access at their own convenience.

In social studies for 6D, we will be learning about the five themes of geography as well as beginning our study of the Mesopotamian civilization. I have included the following website below that can students can access at their own convenience to become more familiar with these topics.

I hope that this gives you a snapshot into what your child will be learning this month. Looking forward to great school year!
