Weekly Check In!

 Happy Friday!

Happy Thursday!!

I am emailing you a day early as I will be out of the building tomorrow. We will have Mrs. Esparza filling in for me.
The students continue to grow in their math skills. We continue to move through Topic 4. Please see our webpage for more information on math and important dates.
We are seeing an increase of students' being absent from the flu,  exposure to Covid,  or testing positive.  For math...ALL of the classwork for each day and ALL the homework for each day is posted in your student's block google classroom. If your student  has symptoms, but he/she is feeling well or just being cautious they should continue to do their work just as they would if they were in school. If they don't, they will fall behind and this should not happen due to using the Google Classroom every day since the beginning of school. We  expect them to return to class fairly caught up on lessons and quizzes. This is the new way of school during this pandemic. Students can email me or comment through Google Classroom if they have questions and I will get back to them just as soon as I can. I am still teaching live in the classroom, so it may be at the end of the block, my lunch break or at the end of the day. This information was sent to all sixth grade students today in Google Classroom and is true for all of their sixth grade classes/teachers.
There is no school on Monday for MLK, Jr. Day.
I hope you all have a safe and healthy weekend.

Block 1

We are halfway through Topic 4 that covers representing and solving equations and inequalities. The students competed the mid topic assessment for topic 4.  Overall the students did very well and a few were given the option of test corrections to improve their score. Be sure to ask your student to show you their test or check their Friday folder for the test correction sheet. We should be able to test out by the end of January. Students have started their Pick a Projects.

Mrs Stages students will be seen by her on every other Tuesdays and Thursdays for math.

A reminder, our classrooms for math are 'flipped' classrooms, meaning the students will learn the lesson at home via EnVision online and with their workbooks and then we will practice, ask questions and check our understanding and ability to do the skill of that lesson in class the next day.  This approach is being used in middle and high school and provides more classroom time for teachers to work with students whole group, small group or individually during face to face class time

If a student is absent from school they can access the days lesson in Google Classroom. It is important that the work missed is made up prior to returning to class if at all possible. The lessons are presented online and the students follow along in their math workbooks. They then work out the problems and record answers in their math workbook  The students have their math notebook that will be a resource students may use throughout the year.

willing to learn
 Hello!!
My name is Andi Skolout and I am so excited to be spending this next year with you and your 6th grade student. I have been teaching in the district for over ten years. This will be my sixth year teaching 6th grade math here at SCE. I feel I have really found a home here. I love teaching in DCSD. Teaching is a second career for me and I graduated from Regis University of Denver.
I have high expectations of all my students in their learning and behaviors. At this point in a student's educational career I believe they should know and show respect, responsibility, and a resolve of learning to the best of their ability. I love what I do and I work very hard to ensure my students are learning, and hopefully, loving learning. I look forward to a great year!!
