Bridge to GEM

Next year as a 6th Grade GEM student, your child will be learning all content standards from grades 6-8 prior to entering Algebra 1 Honors in 7th Grade. He/she has already learned some of the 6th grade content in his/her 5th grade PRIMES class. Your child will be learning the other 6th grade standards through virtual bridges at home while learning the 7th and 8th grade content in class next year. To support his/her success in 6th grade GEM, we are recommending that he/she start the work described below to practice and continue learning over the summer.

Your incoming GEM student can begin the “6th Grade Mission” in Khan Academy. After starting the sixth grade mission, Khan Academy’s adaptive software and instant feedback will guide them on their individual learning path. This allows them to practice skills, understand which ones they have truly mastered, and focus their effort where it’s most needed. Students will also be able to link their work to their teachers when they start the school-year so that they can pick up their learning from there.
