Weekly Update: June 6

Good morning!

The Redberry Field Trip is on Thursday of this week. Students should be meeting in our classroom at 7:45am. We will be back by 3:00 to catch the buses at the end of the day.  The activities we have planned for the day are: archery, hiking, beach volleyball, and wall climbing. Students should be bringing (depending on weather):

  • sunscreen
  • bug spray
  • snacks and additional lunch(if they do not like hot dogs)
  • good walking shoes (no flip flops)
  • a great attitude!

We will go on our field trip rain or shine, so if it’s wet, please bring rain gear.


Other than the field trip, here is what is going on this week:

  • Math- Examining coordinate grids and moving into transformations on grids. This is a great time to play the game battleship at home to practise!
  • ELA- We are finishing our non-fiction books this week. Miss Hartl and I would like to have them printed off next week for the Reading Party.
  • Social Studies- We will be meeting in small groups to share our Final Global Teenager Projects with Mr. Carra’s class in Thornhill, Ontario via Google hangouts. Two students from our class will virtually be paired with two students from Mr. Carra’s class to share their final projects and receive feedback.
  • Art- Independent art projects are well underway! Thank you for all of the support in helping your child secure supplies for their project!
  • Genius Hour- continues to go great! I can’t wait to see the final projects. Many students are assuming that they are done because their final product is finished. I am encouraging them to go back to their original inquiry questions to help guide their thinking and questioning around their projects.  Genius Fair is scheduled for June 23- all projects should be completed close to that date.
  • Brown Bag Share- the following students are sharing this week in CPR: CR, TT, KF, BP, RF, BH, KZ, JR
