Introduction into Mr Garcia's 6th Grade Social Studies in Google Classroom

Introduction into Mr Garcia's 6th Grade Social Studies

To all of my new incoming 2020-2021 6th grade students and parents,   A big and awesome welcome to your new phase in your young growing and developing minds and bodies.  Although this is not what I expected for the start of the new year. I am hoping and praying that this new distant learning model will only be short term and am looking forward to getting back into the classroom where I can make history come alive for all of you.  Until then we will have to endure this new model of learning the best way we can.   For the next week and a half all teachers will be introducing you in the different subjects what all of you are responsible for, and hoe we will be setting up this distant learning idea. 

As you already should have been researching the normal online school agenda is the following.
Periods 1,3 and 5 will be meeting on Mondays and Thursdays.  Supposedly 90 min block periods.  I will not keep you on Zoom for that amount of time 
Periods 2, 4 and 6 will be meeting on Tuesday and Fridays    Supposedly 90 min block periods.  I will not keep you on Zoom for that amount of time 

On Wednesdays will be what is called Enrichment for 35 min from 11:25 to 11:55

For me, there will be office hours on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays from 1:30 to 2:30 to help any student who need extra help, and on Friday there will be what is called "Fun Friday" from 2:00 to 2:30.  My class is Card playing, I'm still trying to figure this out myself.    I'II let all of you know how is goes.   A lot more will be explained during our first meetings this Thursday and Friday, so be a little patient :)  

Now I want to give all of my students and parents my cell number so that any of you can get in touch with me for any reason.  It is 310-871-3679.  Parents usually call me and students usually text me.  Either way is okay with me.  I would appreciate that no phone calls or texting should be done after 8:00 p.m daily, but other than that go for it.     Cant wait to see you this Thursday and Friday on Zoom

 "THERE IS ONLY ONE SUCCESS: TO BE ABLE TO SPEND YOUR LIFE IN YOUR OWN WAY."
"Christopher Morley"


To all of my amazing and wonderful 6th grade students. Look at the quote above, read it, and try and understand its meaning.  Your ultimate success and happiness in life is up to you.  You are the painter, and with your brush you and only you will paint your life. I hope and  pray that your weekend was restful and fun with family and friends.  

So are you ready for Academics in school?  Well ready or not, here we go jumping in feet first.  We will be going over geography this week.  The first work assignment will be a Geographical Vocabulary digital worksheet.  Your job is to use your Social Studies TCI online book, or your hard copy I hope all of you got from the CCHS library.  Don't worry if you did not.  We will go over how to use the TCI "Histroy Alive " online book.  Just know, that if any definition of the vocabulary words are not in the book, you may use a dictionary, your ChromeBook, Personal laptop or Personal Computer via the internet.

I'm using a program called Padlet to do this digital vocabulary sheet.  You will be answering, and writing your definitions on the Padlet program, and when finished turn it in for credit.   When all of you are done with the Vocabulary worksheet you will be doing a Digital World map, and physically locating those vocabulary words. 


We will go over how to start and complete this assignment in our Zoom Class, so be patient.   I want to make it clear that geography is essential to understanding Ancient History.  All of you need to understand the physical locations of every civilizations we will be learning this year.  The first, and most important is understanding the geographical features of our world and its terminology.


Please do not try to do the work now, just because I have placed it on Google Classroom.  We will go over what your are  responsible for on Monday and Tuesday so be patient.   


f for any reason you are unclear of what we are doing this week, do not hesitate to either call me or text me for more information.   Your wonderful and amazing teacher!!!!!    Mr. G  :)        310-871-3679
