Dear Parents and Students:
I would like to welcome you and your child to sixth grade. This year I have planned many innovative and educational activities for your child. I will be teaching your child science this year. Also, your child will be reading nonfiction ( science related) reading selections.
My teaching approach in science is hands – on. We will investigate many explorations while using the scientific method.
I have incorporated a comprehensive language and literacy framework designed to support young readers and writers in the science field. The framework consists of word study, reading (guided, self-selective) and writing.
My goal as an educator is to assure that all students in my classroom become life long readers and writers in science
I am really excited about teaching your child this year. I believe that each child is unique and special , and I intend to treat every student in this manner. I only ask that you encourage your child to learn in many ways and to be a part of this team of learning.
I am looking forward to a wonderful school year. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call.
P.S. If you have any children’s magazines relating to science that you would like to donate to the class, it would be greatly appreciated.
