Weekly Update: Oct. 17

Hello! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. This week is going to be a bit wonky: I am away tomorrow to facilitate sessions at the Beginning Teacher’s Conference, Miss Harvey is away on Wednesday for internship meetings, and I am away on Thursday and Friday to present and attend the Creating Learning Culture’s Conference.

Wednesday is the last day for fundscrip orders! Our class is at about 33% participation rates- in order to win a class movie and popcorn party we need to have a 75% participation rate. All money gathered through this fundraiser goes to extra-curricular activities at school. Large orders can be dropped off at the school office by parents on Wednesday morning starting at 8am.

Here’s what’s happening this week in class:

  • Math- we are reviewing multiplication of single, double digit, and triple digit numbers before we start multiplying decimals.
  • ELA- In Writer’s Workshop we will start working on our Where I’m From poem on Tuesday and Wednesday. We had an awesome class last Thursday analyzing and understanding the original poem and I cannot wait to see what the class is going to write! In Reader’s Workshop, we will be continuing on monitoring our comprehension and ensuring that we understand completely what we are reading.
  • Health- Miss Harvey has started on a unit dealing with body image, media, self esteem and healthy living. Students will be combining this with some procedural writing (ELA) to create a “Grade 6 Survival Guide.”
  • Fine Arts- Students will continue to work on their independent art projects this week. They will have a large part of tomorrow afternoon to work on them, so supplies should be brought to school.
  • Social Studies- We are continuing to work on geography skills.

Other items to note:

  • Brown Bag Share this week: Sydney, Jackson and Brock (Tuesday), Joe and Keiran (Wednesday)
  • Please return any SeeSaw permission forms ASAP

  • Class poltuck on Tuesday, November 8th to celebrate meeting our mystery student goal!
