An Emphasis on Life Skills and Independent Learning
Our 6th Grade curriculum will expand your child’s knowledge of classic American literature by delving into works of Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and Langston Hughes. These pieces will supplement your child’s learning of sentence diagramming, which is unique among contemporary educators. The spelling unit that is covered in 6th Grade includes many cross curriculum words from other subjects and integrates with phonics instruction.
Two different math options are available with our 6th Grade curriculum: 1) Calvert Math, a traditional math program where students review common mathematical operations, fractions, and decimals, and dive into integers, graphing, statistics, and problem solving or 2) Math in Focus, a new, modernized math approach where students use integers to represent positive and negative real world quantities, relate fractions, decimals, and percents, as well as generate and identify equivalent expressions.
Other subject areas, such as World History, Technology, and Art are covered in depth in our 6th Grade curriculum. Your child will explore the birth of Western Civilization from the dawn of man through the fall of Rome. In geography, a student will travel to Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antarctica, where he or she will also learn about the environment, weather, and climates in their sciences. Our technology lessons cover operation systems, URLs, Web searches, and presentation software. Finally, to cultivate your child’s creativity, 6th Grade will also cover hands on art lessons coordinated with art history.
