Welcome Sixth Graders!
On this site, you will find the homework listed for most of your classes. This site may not always be updated, so you need to still record the homework in your agenda books.

Mrs. Honabach - Welcome to 6th Grade Math!
The sixth grade math department has been stressing a "Mathematical Mindset" based on the research and subsequent book by Jo Boaler.
This is where the homework would be listed for each class period.Honors: 12 Days of Christmas - computation review this week.Due on Thursday/Friday.Test on Wednesday -- Data Analysis - Measures of Center, Data Displays, M.A.D.Periods 3/4 and 5/6:12 Days of Christmas - computation review this week.Due on Thursday/Friday.Test on Wednesday -- Data Analysis - Measures of Center and Data DisplaysAll Classes: Computation reviews get a final grade on Friday. They may however ask for a pre-check 2 times before the final day it is due, therefore it is wise to not let it go until Thursday night.Below are the directions to access Office 365 and OneNote. Please take the time to set up your son/daughter's account on the computer he/she would use to access OneNote from home. This will also help in staying on top of your child's classwork. Your student will have done this on their school laptop during the first week, so it should look familar.All agendas are on OneNote.(OneNote is a Free download from Microsoft at Onenote.com)
(If you have Microsoft Word you may already have it. Check the all programs, it will be in the Microsoft folder.)To access this the students use their Office 365 account. Follow these steps:
Click this link: office365.com to go to the sign in page.
Find the sign in – It is in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
Type in the following as the email:
year of graduation (which is 23)first initial last name (no spaces or punctuation) @bloomsd.org
Choose work or school account (some times this is asked and other times it is not)
Put in your password (student id number -- it begins 24...) - same as the network password.
You are into your office 365 account.From your 365 account get One Note shared files:
Click One Drive. (the cloud icon)
On the left menu find “shared with me”.
Click on that and you should see the One Note class notebook that I shared with you. (It will be the name of the period I have you in class.)
Click on that. Once it is opened, at the top hit the menu choice “EDIT in One Note.”
You will be prompted to Launch the program.
Go ahead and hit the button “launch the program.” You will be asked to sign in again. Once it comes up, you can right click on the icon on the taskbar and pin it there. From now on all you will have to do is click the Icon to access it. OneNote always remembers which notebook you had open last, so it will start there when you click the icon.

Accelerated Reader/Independent Reading Program
Our AR/Independent Reading Rewards program has just begun for the 2018-2019 school year! Each time students read an Accelerated Reading approved book, they take an AR test. For each passed test of 70% or higher, students receive a ticket to be entered for a monthly drawing of a $10.00 Walmart gift card. Ex.-If you take 3 AR tests (and pass them), you will have 3 entries into the monthly drawing. Students must complete an Independent Reading Test (AR Test) OR complete a reading packet each marking period along with another side choice item! This will count as 50 points per marking period. Please see your student's "Independent Reading Folder" for all information and student choices. This is also posted on my Google Classroom page on the stream.
