Dear Student & Parent,
Welcome to 6th Grade! I am Mrs. Jones, your Math teacher for this year.
I am overjoyed to begin my 13th year of teaching as a third year teacher at W.J. Christian. Over my career, I have taught every grade from Kindergarten to 6th grade. This experience provides me with the background knowledge to address any prior Math skills that may have been a struggle. As we progress through the year, if any skill deficiencies are identified they will be addressed in small group instruction.
Our class will be using the Laying the Foundations (LTF) curriculum. This is a Pre-AP curriculum designed to provide more in-depth thinking and reasoning, and ultimately prepare students for high school AP classes. This program is rigorous and will challenge students to focus and think on a deeper level. Students will be given handouts for each lesson to be placed in their Math notebooks. As we move towards a digital classroom, handouts and other materials will be available through Google Classroom. We will also use the Glencoe Math, Course 1 textbook as a supplemental resource. Students will be assigned a book as well as online access.
All assignments/projects will be posted in Google classroom. Feel free to contact me through Class Dojo or email MrsJonesMath6@gmail.com.
I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing!
