This kit includes summer work that covers the CORE curriculum used in a sixth grade classroom, fraction insets to cut out, a set of decimal insets to cut out, an answer key, and a progress chart (download separate- free). Each section of work includes a brief review (where needed) of how to do the work and directions. The work sections in the sixth grade kit include: Greatest Common Factor and Lowest Common Multiple; Mean, Mode, Median, Range, and Outliers; Simplifying Fractions; Fraction Number Line; Adding, subtracting multiplying, and dividing Fractions; Operations with mixed fractions; Decimal number line; Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals; Converting fractions to decimals; Ratios; Percent's; Decimal, fraction, and percent review chart; Graphs, charts, and plots; Integers number line and comparing integers; Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing integers; Inequalities; Rates; Exponents; Distributive property; Order of operations; Solving Algebraic equations; Coordinate plane; Graphing systems of inequalities; using the substitution method; Area of rectangles, squares, triangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids; and Volume of rectangular and triangular prisms. The set of red fraction insets includes insets: 1/10, 1/9, 1/8, 1/7, 1/6, 1/5, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 1. There is one set of decimal insets (7). There is a progress chart to record work done. At the end of the summer you or your child can post how many days were finished on either the ABC Crate Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook page to win a prize that will be mailed to your child. I would recommend logging the days that need to be completed on a calendar (there is a copy of the June, July, and August calendar for your use in the kit) with your child to set expectations for your child at the start of the summer.
This educational kit was made with love by a certified Montessori teacher of 18 years. I am certified in Early Childhood Education (preschool and Kindergarten), Elementary Education I (grades 1st to 3rd), and Elementary Education II (grades 4th to 6th). I have worked as a lead teacher in all the above grades, Montessori teacher trainer, dance director, and Parent Education director. I hope you enjoy this kit as much as I enjoyed making it. I created the ABC Crate LLC so that I could share the joys of Montessori lessons and philosophies with all who seek wonderful lessons for their little ones. I have many more kits to come ranging from preschool to middle school. Feel free to drop a note about which lessons you would like sooner. ABC Crates are great for Home School programs, parents seeking support material for the home, and for teachers to use in their classroom.
