They will have completed and organizer form to follow and they will have practiced to be prepared to present what they have learned so far in 6th grade. It is a practice we use to observe students share what resonated with them in classes and how they are feeling about their learning. They will use their class notebooks, chromebook and projects to share this. The three 6th grade teachers will be present to support, guide and answer questions. Students must attend the conferences and there will be a form to sign up sent out through SCE front office.

Checking In!!

 
 Happy Friday!!!

Students took their first online enVision topic assessment. Overall I am happy with the outcome, and as with every new year of new students I will find ways for students to be and feel more successful with effort and desire.  We will work through kinks and obstacles and we all have to remember it will take time. Students were shown and taught how to do test corrections in whole group. They learned and practice what the expectations are for getting credit back on missed questions with the test corrections. Topic 2 will be lessons on Integers and Rational Numbers.

We are working out our RtI routine to provide enrichment and intervention in reading and writing. This is the focus of our building and we are working to find ways to get that extra touch to the students who can benefit from that.

We are still having students missing water bottles and headphones that are so important to have in the classrooms for learning. Starting October I will not be lending out my headphones and the student will receive a minus for not being prepared for class. This could also affect the outcome of their test scores and lessons. Please let me know getting headphones will be a hardship and I will work with the student to ensure we can support them. Also, students will need access to technology occasionally for the online lessons and iReady. Please shoot me an email if this isn't possible for your student. Again, I will work with the student to ensure success in homework.

Please check your students Friday Folders, planner and classroom work sites to see how your student is doing with homework, SOAR expectations and grades.

Back to School Night             

 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 seventh 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!!
