We have a big year ahead! Sixth grade math is a huge step so it is important to study at home in addition to the work we do at school. This year we will have a total of 8 unit tests and each unit has multiple vocabulary words that you will be responsible to know! Unit tests will be 2 times a quarter so make sure to stay on top of homework and studying! Need extra help? Don’t wait to ask! I am always willing to set up a time to help students who need extra support or help on a topic.
