Hello,
It's hard to believe we are at the end of May! We have officially finished our "assignments" for LA and have moved into final project week. Here are the project choices. (click the link)
Students should have told me their topic by today as I am setting up meets for Monday based on the groups. The choices are from here. (click the link)

On Monday, we will have meets to discuss and begin working on projects by completing a plan sheet. Students are expected to read the articles from the padlet above (we have been working on this for a couple of weeks - but if students haven't started - there is still time - you may just have more work to do next week than expected.)

Math has a last big week of learning to divide decimals. It will be a quick review.

Ms. Roberge and Ms. Lamb are meeting today to plan our week of fun virtual trips, talent shows, games and more for our last week and a half of school.

Have a great weekend.

Hello Aurora,

We had book meets today. Not very many kids showed up. We did have a good talk though and I shared with those in attendance that I am not returning to BRMS as a classroom teacher next year. I am leaving to pursue my dream of reopening the National Writing Project in Vermont (if you have any great higher ed connections, let me know) and working as a writing and social studies literacy consultant. It has been my great privilege to teach this class.

Math continues the study of decimals.

Hello Aurora,

I hope you had a wonderful long weekend. We are beginning the big wind down for sixth grade. Next week we will work on a project for our padlet subject, then we will organize some virtual field trips and group fun.

Today we looked at some rights and power of native tribes and the environment, namely the Mattaponi River.  When you read/listen to me read the article, think about who has power (I'd say both sides have some.) Also, think about what we learned about water in fifth grade.

We had CPR today at 9 and game break at 12:30. Both were great. Next game break is planned for Thursday. Time tbd. As for book meets, we will do them all tomorrow (Wednesday). I will combine the groups. Look for those links in tomorrow morning's email.

Happy Friday and Long Weekend to Come,


We had cpr today at 10. We got to hear a lot of great summer activities Aurorians have been up to.

Here is the list of work from this week that hopefully was completed. If not, that is why we have catch up day.

Here is your list from LA this week:
Monday - notes from Free At Last and note on power PLUS one article from your padlet choice (notes and power)
Tuesday - Constructed response food and friendship in Free At Last PLUS one article from your padlet choice (notes and power)
Wednesday - journal entry of your choice based on the videos PLUS one article from your padlet choice (notes and power)
Thursday - commonlit Free At Last (consider Tuesdays response for the last question) PLUS one article from your padlet choice (notes and power)
Friday - free write day or write about your topic from the padlet

Math today: do your exit ticket, check in on what you missed for the week.... GO ENJOY OUTSIDE!!! 
It's been quite the week of beautiful weather. This weekend looks like it will be stellar too. 

We have one more week of "regular" irregular classes, then we prepare for wrap up with a final project related to our padlet study (or studies) and some virtual field trips and group fun.
happy weekend! (With images) | Weekend quotes, Happy weekend, Weekend

Monday NO SCHOOL - Memorial Day

Hello Team,
Happy summer!

Luckily, LA was on the light side today, and tomorrow is catch up day. I hope everyone got some good outside play time today.

We have CPR tomorrow at 10.

We continue to multiply those decimals in math. Make sure you are showing up for help sessions or reaching out to Ms. Roberge if you get confused.

Hello Team,

Today we had our Wednesday book meets. Remember to contact your teacher if you miss a meet. We can connect with you one on one.

It's easy to get lured outside this week, which is a wonderful thing. Consider doing your school work early. You can do it later in the evening, but you might not find your teachers until the next day.

For those of you who missed ordering books, Mrs. Thompson ordered a couple for you. You will receive notice in a week or so that you can come and pick them up.

Remember, next Monday is Memorial Day and we will not hold "classes" that day. Enjoy your long weekend.

We have CPR on Friday at 10 am. Tomorrow is commonlit day.
