Block 1

We will begin Topic 3, Numeric and Algebraic Expressions when we return from Thanksgiving break. While remote learning we will do our best to keep our daily classroom schedule as it is when we are in the classroom. The students will continue to have a lesson to do as homework each night. The next day we will spend about 20 minutes in a mini lesson in a google class meeting with about 20 minutes to practice and ask questions while in the google class meeting. Students will then have a 5 question quiz online and then move to at least 15 minutes of iReady (daily expectation).  The quiz lets me know if there are individuals that need reteaching or enrichment with each of our lessons. We are going to try to utilize our Fridays for our Pick a Project. In the event there isn't a lesson to be competed at night (testing time) our projects could be part of our homework. 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.  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 possible. The lessons are presented online and the students follow along in their math workbooks. 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.

6th Grade Creed

2020-2021
As a 6th grade student I promise to respect others, work hard, maintain a growth mindset, while following SOAR expectations and Covid-19 rules.
~Mrs. Skolout's 6th grade class
 
 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 fifth 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 to 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!!
