Tips for success!

  •  Be prepared for class. Make sure you have paper and supplies with you at all times.
  • Clean out your backpack on a weekly basis. Pick a day on the weekend to do this, like Sunday night before going to bed.
  • Put things away in the proper place. Shoving things in your backpack will only mean things will get lost or destroyed.
  • Save EVERYTHING for the quarter. You want to verify your grade with what is on Schoolloop.
  • Reading outside of school is so very important. It will increase your success in science and math, as well.
  • Never wait until the night before a test to start studying. Get in the habit of studying every night, as soon as you learn of a test.

Welcome to Ms. Muse's 6th Grade Core

What is Specialized Core?

 

Core consists of English Language Arts, Reading and Social Studies. The 6th grade core curriculum is standards based and taught in a "3 period block" of time.

Through the writing process, students learn explicit strategies to help them find meaningful subjects to write about. In addition, they learn ways to structure their writing, revise, edit and publish. They also learn spelling strategies and proper conventions.

Students discover meaning in literature and history by connecting their reading to personal experiences and prior knowledge. The English Language Arts program includes comprehension strategies in fiction and non-fiction and an exploration of genres.

The activity-based History-Social Science curriculum begins with the study of early humans and focus on ancient civilizations through the rise of the Roman Empire. Then we continue starting from the Fall of Rome, through Europe, The Middle Ages, Japan and China. We end our history curriculum with American History up to modern times.

7th and 8th graders follow the same curriculum except they do not have a Reading period. That allows them to take one extra elective.
