6th Grade Weekly Note

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

This week your child began to put together the culminating work for the first trimester: The Museum of Biome Adaptations.

*IMPORTANT REMINDER - the 6th grade Museum of Biome Adaptations will take place immediately after the Winter Concert (approximately 10:15) on Wednesday, December 14. Mark your calendars. *

On Tuesday, we visited the Academy of Natural Sciences to study how dioramas are made and perhaps learn some techniques that can be used in our scaled down versions.

Other units are coming to a close. Your child made the last trades in our introduction to algebra and wrote final equations for the value of cowry shells, stickers, mints, and bubbles relative to each other. In LA, we are finishing the book Fever.

Questions to ask your 6th grade student:

  • Why do you think a paper clip can sit on top of the surface of water? Why? Why?
  • What was left in your bag at the end of the trading unit? What does this have to do with algebra?
  • What is the connection between the book Fever 1793 and water treatment in Philadelphia.
  • What materials will you use for your diorama?

The smell of pine was in the air in the 6th grade space this week. Students designed and conducted experiments to test the strength of original recipe glues they made from pine pitch collected at the Schuylkill Center. This is all part of our investigations into human-plant connections. On the African side of this theme, your children have been continuing their study of chocolate. Through role plays, reading, and calculating various related percentages, 6th graders are considering their buying choices in terms of fair and free trade chocolate. Ask your child about the details.

Other questions to ask your 6th grade student:

  • How did you control the variables in your experiment?
  • What percentage do you think is a fair tip at a restaurant? (We didn't yet have this conversation, but it would be interesting to hear what they say, given our work in math.)
  • What was it like for you to process cacao seeds?
  • Do you think that John Heinz Wildlife Refuge and the surrounding area is a good example of balancing land conservation and development?

Dear 6th grade parents,

Greetings! We have enjoyed getting to know your child over the past few days and are excited about the year ahead. This week, students learned and practiced important 6th grade routines. We have also started reading and analyzing The Giver. This weekend, discuss with your child her/his strengths and weaknesses.

Your child's homework is listed on a shared googledoc. Feel free to check it with your child.

Next Tuesday is our first day at Blue Bell Meadow in the Wissahickon. This will be our home base on Tuesdays instead of the Schuylkill Center, as it provides opportunities to study topics more aligned with our curriculum. Blue Bell Meadow is on Walnut Lane in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia. Please make sure that your child is appropriately dressed. We will go rain or shine. We will do tick checks when we arrive back at school. Your child should do a more thorough tick check at home.

Students are required to wear sneakers during PE class. Students can either wear sneakers to school on days they have PE. Or, they can leave a pair of sneakers in their cubby and change their shoes before they arrive to class.

*Athletics: *A quick reminder that fall sports starts on Monday! Please go to the Middle School Interscholastic Sports page of the school website (remember, the password to the parent portal is tigers) to register; online registration closes today. For students to be able to participate, they must turn in their sports physical and student athlete contract; the contract is the the last page of the Athletic Handbook (It can also be found with the online registration as a supplemental form that can be uploaded once signed.) If one of these forms is not yet submitted, the student is still expected to go to practice to be a part of the team building and learn through observation. Practice for all sports will run from 3:30-5pm. Any questions related to the sports physical should be directed to Sara Forgione, our school nurse. If you have questions about the Athletic Handbook, please email Akemi Moriuchi, our Athletic Director.

Have a great weekend!

Some questions to ask your 6th grade child:

  • What is one thing that is unique to being a 6th grader at TPS?
  • What strategy did you use to solve the stair problem?
  • What is special about being an eleven-year-old in the community described in The Giver? What is special about being an eleven-year-old (and 6th grader) at TPS?

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

The year is winding down, but the 6th grade is still on the move. This was a busy week and the main focus was on the 2016 TPS 6th Grade Rite of Passage Night. Students spent the week in rehearsals and in groups creating original ways to present each of the ten beads we earned this year. Their hard work paid off as the evening was moving, fun, and wonderful way to honor and celebrate our efforts this year.

Featured at Rite of Passage Night were student TED Talks, which showcased student reflection, research and personal growth. The experience of watching each others' talks was powerful and helped build trust within our 6th grade community and within ourselves.

Finally, on Friday we walked to the Philadelphia Art Museum to see the exhibit “Creative Africa.” Students explored bold and expressive photography, architecture, fashion, and traditional African art.

REMEMBER:

Go Play...In The Woods: A Presentation of Play Sites and Ideas Tuesday, June 7, 10:30 - 12:30 @ Smith Memorial Playground.

Questions to ask your 6th grader:

  • What was the coolest piece of art at the Creative Africa exhibit?
  • What is your play philosophy?
  • What is the best feature of your outdoor play space at Smith?
  • How do you feel about the end of this school year?

Graduation is next Friday, with dismissal at 11:30am. 

Take care,

Terry, Mike, Jess & Katrina

Dear Sixth Grade Parents,

What an end to the year for the sixth grade! TED Talks this week have allowed students to directly answer our trimester’s essential question, How do we define ourselves? These TED Talk–style presentation include research, data, and images. As an audience, we have witnessed over fifty of our peers examine themselves and bravely take ownership of their growth as learners and people.

This week also marks the completion of our short stories; we worked on edits and made connections between the hero’s journey often found in short stories and students' own backpacking hero’s journey on the Appalachian Trail. In math we played with decimals and how they can be manipulated to ultimately understand the world. We were also able to observe TPS preschool students at Smith Playground and notice how they play in different environments. We also continued our preparations for our nature play moments presentation (details in final paragraph below).

Announcements: Eleanor Davis-Diver needs magnets for a science experiment that she is doing at home. Any kinds of magnet will do, from refrigerator magnets to neodymium. Please bring in any magnets that you're willing to contribute; donation boxes will be available in units next week.

Save the date: Rite of Passage Night: Thursday, June 2, 5:30.

Go Play...In The Woods: A Presentation of Play Sites and Ideas
Come learn about play from those who know best - kids! Date: Tuesday, June 7, 10:30 - 12:30 Location: Smith Memorial Playground. Smith Memorial Playground and DVAEYC have plans to start an Urban Nature Preschool at Smith. The Philadelphia School's 6th grade students have been studying play this year: their own play, as well as that of TPS preschoolers and preschoolers at the SCEE Nature Preschool. Working in the woods at Smith, our students have developed ideas about where nature play might happen there and how Smith's Urban Nature Preschoolers might eventually engage with their woodland space. At the "Go Play...In the Woods!" event, TPS 6th graders will share their ideas with parents and administrators who are developing the nature preschool. Each group of students will share their ideas about the value of play and take visitors on a tour of the inspiring play sites in the woods that nature has provided and they have discovered. See you there, if you can make it!

Have a great holiday weekend!

Dear 6th Grade Families,

We spent the majority of our week preparing for our annual backpacking trip. On Tuesday, students learned about the various equipment that we would need on the trip. Students also learned how to pack a backpack neatly and how to keep their belongings dry. Fitting all of their clothes and equipment in their bags was a difficult task for many students!

On Thursday, the 6th graders embarked on a trip to the Appalachian Trail. The group hiked uphill for 3.5 miles and set up their tarps at the campsite. Students worked as teams to help each other make it to the top and help set their team gear up correctly. The campsite is a close walk to Sunfish Pond, which provided a beautiful backdrop for a group dinner. After a full day of activities, students slept outside in nature and enjoyed a much easier hike back down to the base.

Important Date Reminder! (your child will receive a paper invitation on Monday with additional details):

~~Rite of Passage Evening. The theme of 6th grade is Africa. We organize various facets of the curriculum around ideas and activities related to initiation and rites of passage. This culminates in a celebratory evening of music, dancing, and reflections about lessons learned throughout the year. The 6th grade Rite of Passage evening will be on Thursday, June 2 at 5:30 pm. All parents, siblings, and elders are invited to this very special occasion.

Questions to ask your 6th grader:

  • What was the most difficult part of the camping trip?
  • What team gear did you have to pack?
  • How many hours of sleep did you get on Thursday night?
  • How did you character change over the course of your short story?

Have a restful weekend,

The 6th Grade Team

6th Grade Weekly Note

Hello, 6th grade parents,

The end of the year brings a whirlwind of activity. Please read all the way to the bottom for upcoming activities.

As part of our play study, your child has been getting the perspectives of TPS preschoolers. In addition to attending multiple play sessions, each 6th grader has formulated questions about play that only a preschooler can answer. The answers to these questions will help round out our understanding of the meaning and value of play.

On the other end of the age spectrum, students have learned about oral histories and next week will be conducting interviews of residents of The Sartain, a community for seniors, about their memories of Smith Playground.

ERB testing this week has not put a stop to other important work. Your child's short story is coming together, with the addition of thoughtfully added character dialogue.

We also began discussions about all students developing a positive racial identity. These conversations will continue in class. In the meantime, please talk with your 6th grader about this issue. What was her experience? How did he feel? What made sense? What is confusing?

Upcoming:

  • Backpacking: We will be leaving for the Delaware Water Gap on Thursday, May 19. Permission slips are due. Please get them in. Students are to bring everything they need to pack on Tuesday, May 17.
  • Spring Fling: Please note that the menu for this evening consists of pizza from Gusto and water ice from John's. Please arrange for a prompt dismissal at 8:30pm. (The event begins at 6:30pm in the Garage.) If your child has not handed in a permission slip for the Spring Fling, he/she will not be able to attend the event. Attendees should bring $1.00 to support Philabundance in lieu of an admission fee.
  • Right of Passage Night: Please make room in your schedule for this celebration of your child's intellectual, artistic, and emotional growth. Thursday, June 2, 5:30 - 8:00.
  • Play Symposium: On June 7, mid-morning (time TBA), the 6th grade class will host a play symposium at Smith Playground. Student groups will present their philosophies on the importance of play exhibit style, take questions, and give tours of playscapes they uncovered in the woods adjacent to Smith.

Have a good weekend,

The 6th Grade Team

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

This week we have been discussing the success, triumphs and aspirations of African countries.The students researched the histories of these countries and the connection to the design of their flag. For the CYOC project the students are now adding a flag for their created country. As the students reflect on what their country’s citizens are proud of and how they define themselves they will create the flag. The flag will have elements of it that are significant to country and will include an element that represents the country’s aspirations.

In math we have been adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals and fractions. We learned that using a fact family when dividing decimals really helps!

In language arts the sixth grade has continued looking at short stories. This week they have begun to write their short stories The students worked on their introductions, they have developed their main characters, setting and plot. They know their characters so well that they were able to act out a scene from each of their stories.

We have continued our unit on play, even in the not so ideal weather conditions. The students went to Smith Playground and were able to look at original documents from Smith’s archives. Towards the end of the week, they observed and interviewed students from our TPS Preschool in the garden and inside their classrooms. Also, some students created Play Inspiration Boards to display what inspires them about nature play. The sixth grade has been working on their TEDTalks. Throughout the week we viewed several TedTalks related to Africa’s future, play and other topics.

Questions to ask your child?

  • What is one thing the citizen’s of your CYOC are proud of?
  • In your short story, how did you hook the reader’s attention in the introduction?
  • What is an interesting fact about your main character in your short story?
  • What is your TEDTalk topic? How will you document the information as you prepare your Talk?

Please read the information below about our cell phone policy: We recognize the conveniences of communicating via cell phone. However, improper use of cell phones by Middle School students during and after the school day has been disruptive and disrespectful. Thank you in advance for supporting the school's work to make responsible use of technology part of our culture here.

~ During the School Day. Students may not use cell phones during the school day without both teacher permission and supervision. Phones must be turned off and kept in a backpack, preferably stowed away in a cubby. If a student uses a cell phone during the school day without permission and supervision, any staff person can and should confiscate the phone. The phone will be given to Matt Eskin or Justine Hoffman and will only be returned to a parent or guardian, who will have to come to school to pick it up. Should that student choose to continue to bring a cell phone to school, he/she will be required to leave it at the front desk each day until the end of the school year.

~ After School. Students may not use their phones in the building after school without both permission and supervision. We understand that some parents text their children regarding pick-up times and after school plans. If you plan to communicate with your child that way, please let your child's advisor and whoever supervises your child after school know this. If a student improperly uses a cell phone after school, the above consequences will hold.

Finally, to attend the Middle School Spring Fling next Friday evening (6:30-8:30pm), students must return a signed permission form by Monday.

Have a great weekend,

Dear 6th Grade Families,

We began our week by learning the story of a young Maasai woman from Kenya, Kakenya Ntaiya. Against expectations, she resisted her culture’s path for girls and women: forced marriage and female genital mutilation. As a high school student, Kakenya negotiated with her father; she would go through the traditional rite of passage of female circumcision only if she was able to continue to pursue education. It was after she left her village that she realized that she, and all other women, had inherent rights that this tradition violated. She founded a primary boarding school that gives space for Maasai girls to learn and define their own future, and 6th graders have been tasked with creating their own schools for their Create Your Own Country that match the culture and values of its people, with Kakenya as inspiration.

In science, we continue to explore the nature of play, by observing young TPS students play, and by creating play experiments that will unearth principles of human behavior. In math, students are working with manipulating fractions with multiplication and division. While in LA, students have begun the process of writing short stories. Our work (and play) so far has centered around building elaborate and well thought out main characters and settings. 

Upcoming Events:

May 19 & 20: 6th grade overnight backpacking trip (more details to follow).
June 2: 6th Grade Rite of Passage Night (more details to follow).

Questions to ask your 6th grader:

  • How did Kakenya Ntaiya overcome the way she was defined by others?
  • What is your play experiment?
  • Why do you use the term "simplifying fractions" instead of "reducing fractions"?
  • What is the premise of your short story?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dear Families,

Our investigation into "How do we define ourselves?" has begun. We spotlighted South Africa's process of redefining itself in its struggle to repair the damage of apartheid. Closer to home, 6th graders took detailed observations of preschoolers in our ongoing investigation of the importance of play in defining one's self. On the other end of age spectrum, we took oral histories of grandparents in order to get an idea of how play has changed over the generations.

We are excited to announce the opening of our new and improved 6th Grade Library! We have replaced many of our old books, which were largely geared to white students. We purchased almost 150 new books, and the majority were ordered with a lens of diversity. New books include protagonists of color and authors of color, and several deal with the topics of gender and identity. The students seemed extremely excited about these new books, so please encourage them to discuss what they are reading with you!

Questions to ask your 6th grader:

  • How is your play similar and different from the play of previous generations?
  • Why is the area of a triangle 1/2 b X h?
  • How does America's struggle for racial equity compare with that of South Africa?

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

This week we revisited Decisions and focused on gender and identity. The students had a discussion about societal expectations and stereotypes for girls and boys. We did a dot activity showing the difficulty in placing people in boxes based on gender.

We traveled to Smith Playground on Tuesday and enjoyed the natural playscape of the woods and the playground, the perfect setting to begin our investigations on the importance of play as a formative process in growing up. Students played, reflected on the experience by interviewing a partner, and created categories for the types of play in which they engaged.

We ended the week with a TPS-wide trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Each family circle participated in a mystery tour lead by a museum educator. The students searched for clues, sketched, made collages, and wrote about artwork they observed.

Questions to ask your child?

  • What is your favorite type of play at the Smith Playground?
  • What was the dot activity during Decisions? How did it connect to the bathroom symbols?
  • Describe one of the paintings you saw at the art museum and why was it important in solving your mystery.

Have a great weekend,

Greetings, 6th Grade Parents, 

Students participated in Spring Mini-Courses for most of the week. All 6th, 7th, and 8th graders were in courses in which they had a special interest in, such as Stories of India, Flash Mob, and Rats. Students learned various new skills, danced, cooked, built various items, and so much more.

Additionally, students prepared for their conferences that will take place next week. Students have reflected on their growth, set goals for the future, and rehearsed their presentation. We look forward to sharing their information soon. Reminder - some conferences start on Monday!

Questions to ask your 6th grader:

  • What is one thing I should know about conferences?
  • How have you prepared for your conference?
  • What is one thing that you created during mini-courses?

Happy Spring! No note next week!

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

Our primary endeavor this week has been crafting Big Idea Papers. After studying each of our four spotlights on modern Africa, students developed big ideas, or thesis statements, about the legacy and influence of outsiders on the continent. They have spent the bulk of the week further developing these big ideas and supporting them with examples. Students created their outlines using a mapping program that allowed them to make connections visually, and then the program turned their thoughts into a standard outline. Then they created a Google doc with their outline, which has allowed us to communicate with students and support them throughout the process.

In math, we began our understanding of shape and volume. Using the 3-D paper cubes, or rectangular prisms, that they created, students began to understand surface area, volume, and shape, while they were being pushed to think and express themselves algebraically. In science, our exploration of the history of human migration and genetic variation focused on adaptations that resulted in particular physical traits, in particular sickle cell anemia.

Questions to ask your child:

  • What is one of your supporting details in your big idea paper outline?
  • Why is having sickle cell both a genetic negative and a positive?
  • Why is advantages to have a larger surface area to volume in warmer climates?

Have a great weekend,

6th Grade Team

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

In the midst of a chilly and rainy week, the 6th grade explored the essential question of “How do others define us?” by examining the colonization of Africa. To do this we studied the process by which European powers callously carved up Africa during the Berlin Conference in the 19th century. We also had the honor of interviewing Dr. Alden Young, Chair of the Africana Studies Department at Drexel University. During his visit, students were able to ask questions about his area of expertise, the colonial history of Sudan. Our 6th graders are taking what they learned from Dr. Young and applying them to their ongoing Create Your Own Country project.

In language arts, we have been looking at America’s own colonial history, the rights and laws that have favored whites, and African Americans’ brave resistance to this racism and discrimination. In math, students have added another dimension to their study of geometry and are now tackling the calculation of volume and surface area of cylinders, cubes, and other three-dimensional shapes. In science, students pieced together clues about rainfall, temperature, and location to discover how sickle cell anemia and malaria are connected and why sickle cell anemia rates are high in some parts in Africa, but not in others.

Questions to ask your 6th grade child:

  • Is America a “color-blind” society?
  • Who was King Leopold?
  • Which 8th grade performance of Shakespeare did you enjoy more, The Taming of the Shrew or Twelfth Night? Why?
  • What 3-D shape did you make and what was its volume and surface area?

Please note that at the bottom of this post is a message to families from the Strategic Planning Steering Committee.

Have a great weekend!

Greetings, 6th Grade Families,

We continued our study of Rwanda and how the country has been able to move forward after the 1994 genocide. Students have discussed how people from Rwanda have been able to reconcile with others after such tragedy. In language arts, students have been writing big ideas about each of our spotlights; these ideas will build up to our research paper. Students evaluate the importance of each spotlight, and make a statement that they could support and defend. This will be the majority of our work in the upcoming weeks.

In math, students thought critically about fixed area and fixed perimeter and connected physical dimensions to the patterns shown in various graphs. Our geometry unit will continue over the next month and move into three-dimensional objects.

During science this week, students discovered the difference between meiosis and mitosis. They learned the purpose of each and how they are important for our growth.

Questions to ask your 6th grader:

  • How do fathers pass down identical “Y chromosomes” to their sons? Why not to their daughters?
  • Given a fixed area of 100, what are the dimensions of the rectangle with the smallest perimeter?
  • How have Rwandans reconciled post-Genocide?
  • What is one of your big ideas?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dear Families,

This week we turned our focus to Rwanda, Burundi, and the legacy of colonization leading to civil war and genocide. We interviewed Adrien Nioyongabo, a Burundian peace advocate who is currently studying at University of Notre Dame. Jess reported on changes in Rwanda over the last two decades since the genocide based on her trip to East Africa this past summer. She also discussed Tanzania and cultural differences across East Africa. Students asked many insightful questions to Adrien and Jess.

Students examined racial conflict in America through the lens of the Black Lives Matter movement. Later students will be challenged to compare American issues of race with those in Africa.

Questions to ask your child:

  • How does a fixed area graph look different from a fixed perimeter graph?
  • What is your inference regarding why the Y-chromosome is used as evidence for human migration through Africa and the rest of the world?
  • What is the similarities and difference between the situation now in Burundi and 20 years ago in Rwanda?

We will see you on Tuesday!

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

We began our week with a spotlight on language in Uganda. We had a guest speaker, Ms. Annette Oyana. She grew up in eastern Uganda and was a professor who trained teachers. The students interviewed her about her experience with language and culture in Uganda, and the complexity of having such diversity in language and how that affects Africans.

We wrapped up our poetry unit with the “They think / I AM” Poetry Show. Students identified a poem written by another that answers the question, “How do others see me?” They then reflected and wrote a poem that answers the question, “How do I see myself?” Visitors to our show were Junior Unit students who were able to see their older peers share deep and powerful poems through spoken performances, as well as in a hanging poetry gallery.

In math, students worked with area and perimeter and have begun to develop algorithms and equations to accurately express trends they identify as being related to both factors. They used this knowledge to graph various data points on a coordinate plane. The 6th graders thought critically to connect the physical dimensions to the patterns shown in the graph. Students spent the week in science completing their research on key moments in the history of human migration. Then, zooming in from the global level to the make up of individual cells, students were able to tinker with the nature of our chromosomes.

Questions to ask your 6th grade child:

  • How does language affect culture in Uganda?
  • Given a fixed area of 100, what are the dimensions of the rectangle with the smallest perimeter?
  • What was your favorite line or phrase from your poem?

Have a great weekend!

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

As winter asserted itself, we had a shortened but focused week. We spotlighted gold in Mali, and we considered the impacts, both positive and negative, that natural resources have on a country. We widened our scope by examining data, images and materials showing diamonds, oil, and conflict minerals in Tanzania, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. As we weigh the costs and benefits, as well as who pays and who benefits, we are asking ourselves, “Is having natural resources a blessing or a curse?”

This week in math, we began exploring geometry and the relationship between shape and size. In language arts, we read poetry from the Harlem Renaissance, considered the power of self-expression, and began the process of writing a poem about ourselves. In science, we used microscopes to look up close at human DNA extracted from inside our students’ cheeks.

Thank you to everyone who donated toys to this past month's Helping Hands collection. This Sunday, Student Council will be cleaning and packing up the hundreds of items, and we'd love some more help. Please come by the Multipurpose Room on Sunday, January 31, 1-4 p.m. Friends and family are welcome!

Questions to ask your 6th grade child:

  • What is inside my cellphone that comes from Africa?
  • What was special about Harlem Renaissance?
  • What is the ideal shape of a bumper car track?
  • What does DNA look like?

Dear 6th Grade Families,

Although it was a short week, it was full of exciting topics and learning. In math, students are working towards mastering their use of integers. Using positive and negative numbers, students have been conceptualizing and learning algorithms to add, subtract, multiply and divide integers. This math work is complementing an ongoing timeline project in which the 6th grade is creating a massive timeline that will extend from our 3rd floor space all the way down the stairway to Patagonia. Using the number and year “zero” as our anchors, we are placing historical events from the history of Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan and others to complete an educational display for the whole school.

We continued our research on the history of human migration, as students have been assigned a specific turning point in human migration history, with which they will create a timeline card that will be added to the timeline describe above.

In language arts, we spent the week discussing African poetry. We examined poems about an African boy making his way to the strange, wealthy and sometimes frustrating America. Students investigated the importance of "voice" in poetry.

Questions to ask your 6th grade child:

  • When one multiplies a positive integer with a negative integer, is the answer positive or negative? Why?
  • What event are you researching that impacted human migration hundreds of thousands years ago?
  • Explain the topic of the poem "How to Fall in Love with an African City".
  • Compare and contrast prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
  • Have a great weekend!
