Another term has come to an end. I can't believe how fast the time is going by. We have focused a lot on writing lately and as we will be continuing this, we will be starting a novel (short and at their level) study. We are looking at the bigger picture, and not focusing on understanding each word. I encourage you to go to library and pick up some chapter books with your child. We will be starting a Journal de Lecture next week and the students will have to read 3-4 books (or chapters) per month and complete comprehension questions about them.
I have noticed that some of you ticked that you would be interested in discussing the report card and I will be in contact shortly. If ever you want to chat please don't hesitate to contact me.
I have explained to the students that an A refers to going over and beyond the overall curriculum, whereas a B is meeting the expectations for each strand.
Science: The students were responsible for finding and performing an experiment to the classroom to demonstrate their knowledge of the matter unit. We have had a lot of fun with this unit and have learned so much, including myself!
Etudes Socials: We are starting les Autochtones, First nations! Researching about the different tribes. If you have any connections it would be great to share them with your child and with the class!!
