Ray Yearbook

During the month of May, the sixth graders wrote articles to create a “green” Ray yearbook.  Thanks to Mrs. Cobb, the yearbook was published through padlet.  Once on padlet, the password drewa can be used to read the articles.

Miss Wejman’s Peek at the Week ~ Week of June 10th

Peek at the Week

Week of June 10th-14th


Writer’s Workshop

Common Core Standard: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

During writer’s workshop, the students will have time to work on their young author books and their yearbook articles.  All young author books will be due on Monday, June 17th.  Students writing fiction have been reminded to keep the model of a “plot mountain” or “plot cliff” when writing their stories.  Often times, young authors get lost in creating a detailed exposition that they neglect to include a rising action and conflict that leads up to the most exciting part, the climax. 


Social Studies

Common Core Standard: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including vocabulary specific to domains related to history/social studies. 

As the students are learning about the invasions and changes to the Roman Empire, they will be identifying the vocabulary associated with the manor system.  In addition to creating a map identifying the key vocabulary of this economic system, they will work in groups to create a skit acting out this way of life of the people during this time period. Activity book homework includes pages 92 and 93.
