Welcome to EMS and 6th grade World Geography! I look forward to a fantastic year and getting to know my students. 
Students will not have homework regularly but are expected to study for a few minutes every night. They should study their notes, handouts, and vocabulary regularly for tests.
The supplies students will need for World Geography are a small 3-ring binder, paper, pens or pencils, and colored pencils. The majority of assignments will be completed digitally in Google classroom. 
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or wish to check on your child's progress.
