Mr. Kim

 

( NOTE : I RARELY USE THIS WEBSITE. PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL OF YOU USE SCHOOLOGY AND HAVE AN ACCOUNT. I POST ASSIGNMENTS AND UPDATES ON SCHOOLOGY. I ALSO SEND MESSAGES ON THE REMIND APP. SIGN-UP INFO IS BELOW. )

Welcome to Mr. Kim's Sixth Grade English, History of Ancient Civilizations, and 6th Grade Leadership !  Email : ysk4725@lausd.net

This is my 22nd year as an educator and I am thrilled to be part of our team effort. I am also a world traveler and experienced the history and architecture and cultures of over 52 countries. Inside my classes, get ready to experience :

  • Various literature and student writing in English.
  • The diverse tapestry of cultures, innovations, and ideas in Ancient Civilizations.
  • Host various events in our Leadership class.

I look forward to working with all of you !

* PLEASE SIGN UP FOR MY REMIND TEXT. ALL WORK IS POSTED ON SCHOOLOGY INSTEAD OF THIS WEBSITE.

PLEASE BE AWARE : LATE WORK IS NOT ACCEPTED UNLESS IT IS AN EXCUSED ABSENCE OR DUE TO EXTREME SITUATIONS WHERE PARENTS NOTIFY MR.KIM.

Students who are absent : It is your responsibility to turn in missed work when you return and get the missed assignment.

 

PARENT LETTERS WILL BE PROVIDED THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL WITH A WEEK TO PURCHASE NECESSARY ITEMS.

* MUSIC MONDAYS (5 minutes during English or History ) 

Each Monday, while students are working, I will roll out my Music Mondays program as they either read in English class or do classwork in History. We will alternate the following :

  • Mozart Monday ( classical music; and we've all read the studies related to Mozart on a young scholar's mind. )
  • Meditation Monday ( meditation music; Indian sitar or Ravi Shankar; meditation as a means for students to stay focused. )
  • Monk, Thelonious Monday (jazz or/and jazz pianist, Thelonious Monk.)
  • Mash-Up Monday ( World Music from Mexico to Morocco; etc. )

Basic Reminders :

* No Name Folder

There is a No Name Folder in the back on the bookshelf. Sort through it during this conference or/and Break time or when it is not disrupting instruction. Do not disrupt instruction to resolve No Name issues.

 

No Name assignments will be graded but with a grade reduction as a penalty.

For example, an “ A “ assignment will be reduced to a “B.”

 

* Late Work

I do allow late work with no penalty for students with an excused absence or various family or personal situations with a parent note. Without one, I will still receive late work but with a grade reduction as a penalty.

 

* Absent

When you are absent, my homework is on SCHOOLOGY ( lms.lausd.net or use the Schoology app ). 

 

The best time to get an explanation on an assignment that you missed is NOT during instructional time but during Break time. Tell me or email me you want to see me so I will stay in class during Break.

You are also responsible for turning in Missed Work.
