6th Grade Teacher

Taught By Erin Fightmaster

I am so excited for the 2019-2020 school year. Students can look forward to covering all our basic subjects (English, History, Science and Math) as well as exploring Art History, music and issues concerning our world.

In English we will be reading books ranging from Harry Potter to A Wrinkle in Time. We will look at nine different forms of writing and we will learn to write our own biographies in the different styles.

For history we will spend the year exploring Ancient Civilizations. We learn everything from Early Man to the fall of Ancient Rome. We learn to make comparisons from these Ancient Civilizations to our modern world.

In Science, the focus will be chemistry, diversity of life and our solar system. We will delve into these topics and have fun with experiments and hands on projects.

Math will bring new challenges, as we learn more Algebra and Geometry concepts as we hone skills necessary to transition to middle school.

Through art, we will explore other forms of expression. With the study of current events, we will become more concerned citizens and improve our empathy for others in the world.

I hope to have fun with everyone and grow as a group this year.
