What's Happening in 6th Grade in December... by Rachel Williams
The penny wars have begun! Currently, going through the classrooms, students are bringing in pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and cash to help raise money for the “Make-A-Wish Foundation.” Remember, one penny is equal to one positive point and any other coin/dollar is worth negative points. Still bring in other coins to bomb other classrooms and put them in negative points. The penny wars will continue through Thursday, December 17. That's two days before winter break! In expressions, we recently finished our Laurel Burch animals and our Indian Silhouette. We are now working on our Jai-Ho dance. We have Indian Cultural Day coming up which is Friday, December 18. When we return from break, we will start learning about Ancient China in Social Studies. Last week, we did a week of code in Science/Tech. People used https://code.org to make games on Flappy Bird, Star Wars, Minecraft, Infinity Play Lab, and Play Lab to make their own games. Once again, winter break is coming up December 19- January 4. We are almost in 2016! We have some exciting things coming up, have fun!
