<Welcome to 6th Grade at Twin Falls Middle School!>
My name is Janelle McCarty. This year at TFMS we are so excited to meet you and hopefully take you into some amazing discoveries.
Social Studies: In Social Studies we will be focusing on Ancient History - discovering the Ancient Egyptians, early Greek culture, Ancient India and the Middle East. Our exploration will focus on how communities work together, including our school community.
Language Arts: In Language Arts we are starting off the year with a focus on Expository writing and the topic of how wild and domesticated animals impact our lives. We will read various fiction and nonfiction texts around that topic and learn how to write an expository essay as well. We will move into argumenative writing and speaking about the role of technology in our lives. Finally, the year will end with a focus on narrative writing, both personal and fictional narrative writing.
Enrichment: In my Enrichment Classes I will work with my students on Public Speaking and Drama. We will play acting games like "Guesstures," practice how to use a Google Slideshow effectively and generally get more comfortable with speaking and listening.
