6th Grade: English Language Arts/ Social Studies

Hello Parents/Guardians!

My name is Sydney Shrinivas. My email is sydney.shrinivas@sacredheartbayside.org

This is my first year teaching at Sacred Heart School, but as an alumnae it feels so good to be back! I have my BA from St. John’s University and am currently in the process of obtaining my MA in Special Education. This page will be updated with important events, class assignments and any changes that may occur throughout the school year. If any child is struggling in a subject, I will offer extra help on Mondays after school as well as during any recess period upon request. 

 

Google Earth

In Social Studies the sixth graders have been studying the 5 themes of geography, latitude and longitude, and the tools of geographers. On Tuesday, they put what they have learned to the test. I gave them a list of coordinates that they had to input on Google Earth. They then had to explore the location, describe what they saw, and try to determine where they were. It was a very fun activity that they really enjoyed. Please ask them to tell you about it, if they haven’t already!

Online Vocabulary Games & Quizzes

Sadlier has a website that correlates with our vocabulary book. The website has games and practices quizzes to go with each unit. How fun! The students should be familiar with the site, as we use it in school. Be sure that the correct unit is selected and start playing/studying! It provides a fun way to study!
