Welcome to Mrs. Sierp's Class Homepage!
This homepage is for both my English Language Arts and Social Studies classes. Below, you will find blogs for each class with what is going on for the week. I can best be reached through email or Class Dojo. Be sure to check here for reminders and upcoming events for 6th grade! I am looking forward to a fun filled year of learning!
Each month, our school focuses on building relationships and community between our students through lessons, games, and buddy ups. This month's focus is on healthy communication.
CLASS PARTIES! Thank you to Mrs. O'Mahoney for taking on the Homeroom Mom role! :) If you have not done so already, please send in $25(for the year) for our class parties or $5 for each party as we go along. :)
Our WINTER PARTY will be on December 21st at 10:30am! Contact Mrs. O'Mahoney if you would like to help out :)
There IS reading homework every school night, Monday- Thursday. Students should be reading a minimum of 30 minutes a night, even if they have read during class that day. Students should be finishing about a book a week unless it is a lengthier book. Independent reading books are student choice but must be at least 100 pages. If there are any questions about whether a book is appropriate for school/grade level I am happy to answer that. There is also a link to measure LEXILE in the "Quicklinks" tab. Audiobooks are permitted as long as students follow along with the physical texts as they are listening. This nightly reading will help keep you on track to reach your 30 Book Challenge goal by the end of the year, help improve your vocabulary and reading rate, and develop a love of reading overall. :)
We are so fortunate to have Chromebooks in 6th grade that make it easy for our students to access programs and textbooks online! All of our programs/ textbooks have audio capabilities. I highly encourage sending in a pair of inexpensive headphones, so they can take advantage of this resource during rotations and for studying. I can put names on them and keep them safe in my room. :)
Our class LOVES to celebrate special days. When it is your child's big day (or at the end of the year if they are a summer baby), you are welcome to send in a treat. It must be store bought and free of nuts. We have 30 students. You can send it in at the start of the day, and we will fit it in as our schedule allows. Let me know if you have questions. :)
Monday-Friday 8:15am - 4:30pm
Please email to request a parent conference or have any questions/concerns.
Check for regular 6th grade/class updates on Class Dojo, through email, and on the websites provided.
