Welcome to Mrs. Johnson's Sixth Grade Classroom


welcome

Happy October! I can’t believe we’re already in a new month. To both parents and students, I appreciate your support and patience with me as I am adjusting to a new school and new routines. It’s been a wonderful September and I’m looking forward to a great rest of the year!

Some fun things that October will bring: Picture day on October 13th, a half day on October 19th, our annual 5K run on October 21st, and of course some Halloween celebrations as we near the end of the month!

This month in math we’ll begin measurement and start studying decimals (ordering, comparing, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing them). We’ll be continuing with life science this month and focusing on cell structure and function.  In religion, we’ll be continuing our study of the Bible. In particular, we’ll focus on the book of Genesis and the creation of Earth.  We’ll be continuing to develop creative poems in grammar/writing for “Barnes and Noble Night” in November. In addition, we’ll begin diagramming and be doing some writing pieces on a novel that Miss Way will begin reading with the students.

Please e-mail me at any time with your questions or concerns:
