Sixth Grade

Welcome to Sixth Grade!

Sixth grade is a pivotal time for our students as they prepare for the challenges of Junior High School. Our task is to get them ready for this transition. Through a rigorous course of study and close attention to the individual needs of all our students, the sixth grade instructional team strives to produce students who are able to demonstrate knowledge of key concepts, principles, processes, facts, and skills in the disciplines of:

  • Language Arts
  • Social Science
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Physical Education
  • Visual and Performing Arts
  • Health/Practical Living Skills

In addition, we will be working hard to get all students to be able to:

  • Effectively communicate through listening, speaking, and writing
  • Demonstrate strong research skills
  • Have the ability to integrate knowledge across disciplines
  • Read with understanding
  • Apply critical and creative thinking to solve problems
  • Use technology to enhance their learning

 

The sixth grade instructional team also strives to develop the following personal qualities in their students:


  • Effective interpersonal skills
  • Concern and respect for others
  • Appreciation of the contributions of diverse cultures, groups, and individuals
  • Social and environmental responsibility
  • Aesthetic awareness and appreciation
  • Integrity
  • Ability to learn independently
  • Ability to work effectively in group settings
  • Ability to reflect on and evaluate one's own learning
  • Persistence in the face of challenges
  • Sense of personal accomplishment
  • Understanding of core values that unify a democratic society
  • Recognition of learning as a rewarding lifelong activity.

 

We encourage all parents to become active participants in their child's learning. Working together we can ensure that every child has the best possible learning experience while at Bradley Elementary School.
