Quarter 1 Reflection

Student Post:

Hi 6th grade families!

I am one of Mr. Funk’s students. My experience of 6th grade so far has been amazing! All of the freedom you receive as a 6th grader is a interesting new experience. I have learned so much in the first quarter of 6th grade in Mr. Funk’s class. The way Mr. Funk teaches math is a amazing method. He does an amazing job of explaining and makes learning enjoyable! Science is something I do not really enjoy, but hopefully I will like it more by the end of the year. I have big goals to keep my grades up throughout all of 6th grade and I think Mr. Funk will help me reach this goal.

The transition for 5th grade to 6th grade was not too hard for me. My teachers all did a great job of doing class bonding activities, assigning simple activities, and helping us adjust to the new environment.

I will always miss my elementary school, mostly my 5th grade year. That was probably the hardest adjustment for me. I have enjoyed all the assignments, including tests and quizzes, so far. Mr. Funk have provided good study materials and given us all the information we need to do well on our tests. That is all I have to say!

Hello Sixth Grade Families!

Welcome to my class website! We will go over it together in class so you can see the different things that I have set up and you can make suggestions for things that you would like to have added. I'm looking forward to starting this school year and getting to know all of you tomorrow!

Wednesday is a day everybody likes. School starting late helps everybody (almost). This Wednesday started out good. Our class began the day with a warm up of science workbook pages and spelling workbook pages. People started turning them in, so I started working. After warm up, Mr. Funk started calling out chromebooks, so people could start to finish up on their state reports, D.A.R.E. reports, and Student Treasures Publishing Book. I turned in my state report which was on Hawaii. I was about add my final touches to my D.A.R.E. report when Mr. Funk told #33-20 to log out and turn our chromebooks in. I took my computer to the cart and sat back down. Table groups started lining up for recess. Many of the boys (including me) were upset that we had to line up in number order. We had to wait until our lines were good to go outside for recess. I don't know how it happened, but our number order line restriction was lifted. The boys were happy, but noisy. The girls had to line up in number order. The boys happily went off to recess with the girls following behind. So the moral of the story is : Be good. You will be rewarded. Eh. Too classic. The new moral of the story is : With great privileges comes great responsibility.

Being Grateful

 Everybody should always be thankful for what they have, Thanksgiving or not. That's what I learned today. Being absent for two days last week, I had to take a benchmark test. Yet I was irritated, not being prepared. But after a while, not only did I realize that it wasn't a test to be prepared for and a test that measures your general knowledge, but I figured that if I were to be in middle school or high school at that moment, I wouldn't get a second chance, and I would be in BIG trouble. So, today I learned that Thankfulness comes in handy to help you in the future with Reality.
             It definitely isn't our fault if we happen to get sick and we can't go to school. But School isn't the only place that gives you education. Life itself can teach you only so many lessons in just one day.
