Day 3 – Beringia Land Bridge Theory

Today we had a guest teacher in our class. Ms. Samuel worked with the Grade 6s in all subject areas. The first area was math where students worked to complete and correct all math work for the Data Management Unit. Ms. Samuel and I met with students to check their work and give feedback on ways to improve their responses. Students who did not get done in class need to finish up to page 120 of the MMS 7 workbook for homework. The unit test will be written tomorrow.

Students who finished up their math review began reading our new novel study Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. They had time read the Prologue all the way to Chapter 4 and begin work on the responses. Those who did not complete this in class need to complete it for homework.

Student-Led Conferences take place tomorrow. Grade 6s spent some time preparing for this event.

On Monday, students pondered “Who was first to discover North America?” They then heard the perspective of those who believe that the first peoples were created and placed on this land. Today, students heard a scientific explanation that may explain how first peoples came to North America. Ask your child to explain the Beringia Land Theory to you.

We ended the day preparing for our Christmas concert performance.

Grade 6s attended French and gym class today.
