Sixth Grade

Sixth grade students have a two-teacher team for the core subjects of math, ELA, social studies, and science. The focus is on Common Core Standards in math and ELA, Next Generation Science Standards, and Idaho Social Studies Standards. We use a project based approach to foster collaboration, creativity, and in-depth understanding of subject matter. With a focus on the arts, we explore topics through dramatizations, visual art, music, dance, and technology. Our curriculum consists of an ELA school-wide focused investigation, the American Revolution and the road to independence, and the study of physical, life and Earth sciences. We supplement the curriculum with Sitton Spelling, Greek and Latin roots, novel units, Scholastic News, Open Up Resources (math), Engage New York (ELA), and Science A-Z.
