Welcome to Mrs. Watkins's 6th Grade Social Studies Classroom!!!Teacher Name: Mrs. Sarah WatkinsSchool Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for taking the time to visit my class webpage! The purpose of this page is to keep you informed of what is currently being taught in my classes, along with key dates. I will also upload any powerpoints, handouts, and vocabulary lists so students can always access my class material. This is my 5th year teaching 6th grade and I am delighted to continue as part of the Bulldog family this year. Please check back often as material will be updated as it pertains to our class.I am so excited about the direction the class is taking. Students will study world cultures and history, specifically the regions of Europe, Latin America, Canada, and Australia. Our classroom theme this year will be "There's a Latte to Learn in 6th Grade Social Studies".The course provides an overview of each location's history, government, economics, and geography. The goal is to give the students a basic understanding of the world and how the events in various places have shaped the world we live in.
That is why the interactive student notebook (ISN) is such a valuable tool. In this notebook, we will put the materials that your child needs to be successful in my class. Notes, graphic organizers, flashcards, review sheets, and returned quizzes/tests are just some of the items that will be included in the ISN. This notebook, not the textbook, is what your child should be bringing home to use for homework and studying.Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns!
