Rebecca Yockey's Sixth Grade Class

We are making great strides in sixth grade!  As students prepare for the increased rigor of Jr. High and High School they need to develop many skills, including: organization, prioritizing, study skills, social skills, healthy habits and responsibility. It is my goal as a teacher to include these skills in with our academic curriculum.  Students also need to practice these habits at home.  Parents are crucial to their children's success in school and life.  If there are any specific needs that your child has, or if I can support you in any way, please feel free to contact me.

The BIG list of math resources-year end review.

Hello Parents and Students,

As part of our review for SAGE and seventh-grade readiness, students will be given a review sheet to do everyday.  If they do not finish these in class (which is okay), they will go home as homework. Naturally, it can be difficult to remember everything from the beginning of the year. So, I am compiling a list of review videos students can watch at their leisure.  I highly encourage parents to have your child watch these, as they probably won’t want to on their own. As an incentive, for every five videos that a student watches they can get a homework pass and a prize! They do need to take good notes and show them to me, in order to qualify. Though most of these are already on my webpage, I thought it may be helpful to have them all in one place.  

So, here it is:

Order of operations:


Prime Factorization:

Multi-digit multiplication and Division:

Distributive Property:

Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying and Dividing Decimals:


Fractions (kids needed a lot of help with these):


Rates, Ratios and Percentages:


The Coordinate Plane:

I also recommend that you keep this reference list.  If you have the time, have your student watch these over the summer.  It will give them an advantage as they head into seventh grade, and move forward into Jr. High and High School math.

Best wishes and happy studying!

Mrs. Yockey
