A message from Mme Lind




Dear parents,

 

I have asked the grade 6 students to bring in a variety of different leaves for science class on Monday. We will try to identify which trees they come from. Can you please remind them to do so?

 

Thank you,

 

Mme Lind

This week:

  • We’ve been working on writing biographies of our classmates, and we have started working on writing a biography of a famous person. Please check in with your child to make sure that the classmate biography is completed.

  • Both grades wrote quizzes on our latest math lessons.  I will send the results home next week.

  • We’ve continued researching the major political parties for the election, and we presented our research to the class.

 

News:

  • I’ve updated our class schedule, and the copy on the blog is now downloadable.

  • We are starting a new classroom economy.  Students have applied for jobs in the classroom that will pay pretend money.  There will be elements of financial literacy incorporated in the near future, as well as a reward and penalty system for speaking French in class.  See the Économie page of the blog for details.  The students are very excited to start this and have already applied for their top 3 preferred jobs.

  • Hot lunch orders are due Monday.  You can order online at https://stmargaret.htcsd.ca/apps/form/form.HTCSD-SMARG.rEvPJC5.DC

 

Have a great weekend!

Mixed Messages

One day Annique is all like “Don’t acknowledge that I’m your daughter.”

Then one day she complains that I don’t acknowledge it enough, and she’s never on the blog. 

Kids! :)

Writing - Revisions and Editing on paragraph about self due Tuesday

Students have been writing a paragraph about themselves. Today they were taught how to do a three step revisions/editing process. The three step revisions/editing process, done on their rough draft is due on Tuesday. Here are the three steps:

  1. chose a color. Find 3 words to change into a triple scoop word.
  2. choose a different color and find three spelling or grammar mistakes (can have more if they see more!)
  3. use a third color and choose 1 sentence to rewrite in a different, maybe more interesting, way.
