Miss Perris' 6th Grade ELA, Reading, and Social Studies


Happy Tuesday,

Grades are updated in Powerschool regularly.  Unfortunately, I am noticing an increasing number of 0s in the grade book.  Parents, please check Powerschool once a week, so you can keep track of your child’s progress.  Additionally, it is extremely important that your child is doing his/her nightly homework.  
Spring band concert TOMORROW, 4/4 from 7-9 pm.  Bake sale, Kona Ice, and hot dogs from 6:30 pm.
Mrs. Panus could really use help with the Book Fair! 
A message from our librarian, Mrs. Panus:

Homework for 4/3/18:

Language Arts (Perris only): 

*Think about the “hook” (attention getter) for your argumentative essay

*Work on the thesis statement.  Remember that the thesis statement is only one sentence.  Example:  Students should be required to wear school uniforms because ____________________ and _________________________.  Or, Students should not be required to wear school uniforms because _______________________ and _________________________.

You can also twist the thesis statement — Because of _____________________________ and __________________________, students should be/should not be required to wear school uniforms.
*Come prepared to work on your introductory paragraph in class tomorrow.
*Review indefinite pronoun worksheet (5 mins.)  Parents:  You can quiz your children on the singular and plural indefinite pronouns.
Singular indefinite pronouns:  All the ones, things, and bodies (kids will understand this) AND each, every, either, neither, and another.
Plural indefinite pronouns:  Both, many, other, several, few, and fewer 
*Indefinite pronoun quiz on Thursday or Friday.

Language Arts (Chen only):  Complete the reading log

Social Studies (Perris only):  No homework  
Science (All):  Animal/plant cell quiz on Friday.

Reading/Literature (Perris only):  Please read 30 MINUTES every day at home.  

If you want to find out if the book your child is reading is an AR book, please go to www.arbookfind.com.  Please have your child see me if he/she needs help with book selection.

Have a good night.
