Best wishes for a very happy Summer vacation!



June 1 - 5

We are now in the month of June! 

Do you like to travel here within the USA and to other countries? If you do, think of the places to where you have traveled, activities you did while there, and the sights you saw. 

For this week's assignment, you have the opportunity to view some travel videos with some unique traits. Proceed to the "announcements" for more details.

This is our last full week, and the last week for assignments. Please have work turned in by this Friday, no later than 1:00 p.m.


May 26-29

Do you enjoy reading stories just to have something great to read? This week's assignment is one we usually do in class to have reading time.

Proceed to the "Announcements" page for the first announcement of the week, and, then, to the "Assignments" page for this week's fun reading assignment.

:-) Have a very happy week! :-)


Week of May 18-22

Culture...what comes to mind when you think of that word? In our class, we talk about culture and how countries have similiar cultural aspects with each done in their own unique ways. This week's assignment will have you making a slideshow project on various cultural aspects right here in our country. Proceed to the "Assignments" pages and find the directions for the project. Read the directions carefully. Most of this project will probably be completed from your own perspective.

Please turn it in by this Friday by 1:00 p.m.


Week of May 11-15

Happy new week! Your projects last week on the various global concepts were wonderful! Today, we are moving along to a new global concept. To read what it is, proceed to the "Announcements" page and read the first announcement for this week. From there, go to the "Assignments" page to locate the activity. Work for this week, as with last week, is available on Monday, at 8:00 a.m., until Friday at 1:00 p.m. This provides five days, ample time, for everyone to work on it. 

:-) Happy week to each of you! :-)


Week of May 4-8   

Do you like to problem-solve? This week's assignment is about you selecting a concept and problem-solving through a project. You can find this assignment on the Assignments page. Please remember to read the Announcements page daily for any potential updates!

Have a very happy week! :-)


Welcome to Global Connections, 6th graders!


                                 It is nice to meet YOU!

                                                                  Hello -                                                                                               

"What exactly is Global Connections?" might be thinking.

In our class, we learn about global concepts. In the 6th grade, we usually study the concepts of Culture, Culture Shock, U.S. Americans, the Lost Boys of Sudan, and Microfinance. This would also include other details within each concept. We usually complete two projects during the six weeks rotation. During this unique time of remote learning, we are going to try doing as much as we would usually do, with some adapting.

Expectations during Global Connections Remote Learning:

1. Read the "Announcements" on a daily basis!

*This is my most important form of communication with you as a class!

Even if there is not a new announcement posted daily, look at the "Announcements" tab often as I might add in something new during the day.

2. Participation is important to learning!

*If you are reading this, you probably have your school Chromebook and access to Internet! That means you are able to participate on a weekly basis! Yay! :-)

3. Do your best work possible!

*Although we are not in our school building, you can still do your work as great as you would if we were on a regular school day schedule in our classroom.

Now that you know the remote learning class expectations, please go to the Announcements tab and click on it to find our

first announcement  of Term 6!


Have a very HAPPY Term 6!

Happy face
