Weekly Check In!

 

Happy Friday and fall break!!

I feel we have had a successful first quarter and everyone is ready for some down time.
I can't find the words to adequately express how proud I am of all the sixth grade students. I am just so happy we are all in school together and we can all learn together.
Thank you to all the families that made it to the Student Led Parent Teacher conferences. It was great to meet some of you and to see some of you again. I felt the students did a wonderful job sharing what they have learned so far. It was great to hear them speak about strengths and weaknesses and likes/dislikes.
The website is updated for the week of the 25th when we return to school from break.
I hope all of you have a wonderful fall break!!   Relax, recharge and have lots of family time.
Take care!!!

Block 1

Block 1 has done a great job with the beginning of Topic 2, Integers and Rational numbers. This week we learned how to use the absolute value to find distances between two plots on a map (quadrant plane). We have finished this topic and will review and test out the week we come back from fall break.   This is one of my favorite standards to teach and the students are excited about this topic. We will start our Pick a Projects and have 3 class periods to complete them, hopefully in class. Several students are so excited they may start working on them at home. Students began logging and tracking their iReady lessons. iReady is a vital piece of our math program as it meets the students where they are. This will help fill in math skill gaps and/or provide extensions or accelerated work on an individual need. 

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. 

Block 2

Block 2 has done a great job with the beginning of Topic 2, Integers and Rational numbers.

Back to School Night             

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!!
