The Sixth Grade Teacher Planner is a student supplement to the Sixth Grade Syllabus. It contains detailed daily lesson plans for each subject in an easy-to-read format addressed to the student. In addition, each week has a Notes section for every subject in order to track any changes to assignments, field trips, extra-curricular work, deadlines, weekly grades, etc.
In Religion we use St. Joseph's Baltimore Catechism, No. 2 to continue the study of Catholic doctrine. We also use the Gospel according to St. Mark and the Gospel according to St. Luke along with study questions for each chapter to facilitate discussion in the study of Sacred Scripture. In Mathematics we use Math 76 (Saxon) to develop facility in computation and understanding of mathematical principles. In Grammar we use Easy Grammar, Grade 6 (Phillips) to continue the formal study of grammar which assumes a more central place in the curriculum this year along with literature, poetry and history all of which contribute to the formation of the intellect in a way that is appropriate at the end of the Grammatical stage. We begin the practice of editing through The Great Editing Adventure, Vol. II. In Spelling we recommend continuing to use The Writing Road to Reading along with Starting a Spelling Notebook. In Poetry we continue to use The Harp and Laurel Wreath for selections of poetry to memorize. In Science we use Balance Beam (Tops) and Pendulum (Tops) or Magnetism (Tops) and Electricity (Tops) which provide a hands-on approach to science. In History we begin The Old World and America which provides a springboard for the study of Egypt and other ancient civilizations through supplemental texts. In Geography, which is correlated with history, we use The Penguin Historical Atlas of Ancient Egypt (Penguin) to let the student master the geography of Egypt and the Ancient World through extensive map work. In Latin we use Beginning Latin III to continue the formal study of Latin. In Art we use Calligraphy – First Steps Series (Marsh) to encourage the practical application while we use Art 7 for Young Catholics (Seton Press) for continued appreciation. In Music we use Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory along with classical music selections for music appreciation.
