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 in Savvas/Realize found in Clever.  They the work out the problems and record answers in their math workbook for the days they are learning at home. Assessments will be done online and they will not be in the workbook.  The students have their math notebook that will be a resource students may use throughout the year.

Student's will need  technology/computer at home to access work on-line for most classes including iReady. Please let us know if there is an issue for your student having technology/computer access at home.

math woordle

Students did a great job on the mid topic! We are now exploring a four quadrant plane and plotting positive and negative integers that make coordinates. We will learn ways to find distances between plotted coordinates and how to construct polygons on a four quadrant plane. 

Our math classroom is a flipped classroom for math.  This means that the students read, practice and learn the lessons at home.  We still review the lessons and check the practice for understanding the next day,  but this allows us more time to address the questions and confusion more intentionally before the students practice at home the next night and take the quick check at the end of the lesson. Students have their workbooks with the lessons in them as well as interactive videos of the lesson in Savvas, which they can access through clever.


ELA woordle

This week students have been focusing on argumentative writing pieces.  We have also completed a spiral review and we will finish our Unit 1 assessment. Moving forward to Unit 2 we will be diving into Expository (information text), Historical Fiction and Poetry.

Soc studies woordle

We have been discussing goal setting in Second Step. This week we revisited our long term goal and discussed 'markers' that would tell us if we were moving towards finding success with our goals. We are also learning about the geography of Canada and the challenges faced by the newcomers to Canada. We are studying timelines and the development of different societies/cultures.  We are using textbooks, short videos and articles as resources to gather information.

science woordle

We have concluded our study of adaptations and students built wonderfully creative creatures who are adapted to all different types of habitats this week!  Next week we will learn about cells and compare prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.

skolout 2.0
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 eleven years. This will be my eighth 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!!
