Dear parents,

My grade 4 student has returned to the classroom, so I’m happy to be able to offer you more time with me.  I was thinking that we could spend some time together in the morning and afternoon, and have some time to work off camera as well.  So the new schedule will be as follows:

 

Tuesday:

10 am: ELA

1 pm: Religion

 

Wednesday

10 am: Science

1 pm: Social Studies

 

Thursday:

10 am: Math

 

I think we’d probably meet for an hour during each time slot, and then if your child needed help with some of the work, I’d be available for the following hour.  I won’t be available Thursday afternoon this week due to a medical appointment.

 

Thanks

M. Boyer

Monday Memo – La classe de M. Boyer

 

Good morning!  I hope everyone is doing well.  I can’t believe its May already! I’m continuing to expand our online meeting times as they are very successful, and it gives us a chance to go through the assignments together.  I find this very valuable and I’d rather spend the time teaching students directly than making video lessons.  If your child is unable to join a meet time and requires some extra assistance, let me know and we will find a solution.

 

My online meeting hours will be:

 

Tuesday: 

Grade 6 Math – 11am-12pm.  Grade 7 Math: 1pm-2pm.

Room code: Contact M. Boyer

 

Wednesday: Grade 6 French – 11am-12pm.  Grade 7 French 1pm-2pm.

Room code: Contact M. Boyer

 

Thursday: Grade 6 Social Studies 11am-12pm           Grade 7 Social Studies 2pm-3pm

Room code: Contact M. Boyer

 

Friday: Fun French Games: Grade 6: 11am-12pm  Grade 7: 1:00pm-2:00pm

Room code: Contact M. Boyer

 

IMPORTANT:  If your child is using a tablet or phone to do their work, I ask that you install a free app called “Explain Everything Whiteboard”.  We’ve been using Explain Everything to provide an extra layer of collaboration and interactivity during our meet times and it works really well.  If you are using a computer or laptop to connect you do not require the app.

 

Here are this week’s activities.

Monday Memo – Week of April 20th

 

Dear parents,

            I hope that everyone is doing well.  The Boyers have been doing great.  We’ve been watching lots of movies and playing lots of games. Annique has been beating me at darts lately, so I need to practice up!  We’re hoping that this week brings some nice weather so that we can get outside for a bit.  Maia is itching to try her new stunt kite again. 

 

            Here are this week’s learning activities.  Please note that next week, one of our activities will involve some reading about the Regina Indian Industrial School, a residential school that was open in the late 1800s.  There are some parts of this lesson that deal with difficult topics, but I want to include this learning to go with the activities that we’ve been doing as part of our participation in the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Legacy Schools program.  We’ll be adding to the map of Saskatchewan that the students will create this week, so make sure you hang on to it.

 

We will be using Google Meet to meet up online. I will be available the rest of the week via email from 8:25am-3:00pm.  If you need face to face help, we could set up a time to meet online apart from the hours listed above.

 

My online meeting hours will be:

 

Wednesday: 10am-11am – We will discuss and correct “le genre du nom” together.

Thursday: 1 pm-2pm – We will discuss grade 6 Math.

Friday: 2pm -3pm – We will discuss grade 7 Math.

Reflect/Research/Answer the following questions:

  • What is human dignity?

  • How does God want me to treat other people?

  • Why am I called to love and serve others?

  • How does Jesus inspire me to live with love and respect the dignity of others?

  • What actions show love in my family, school, community, and world?

 

  1. Give examples:  We are called to treat one another with respect, love and support, and to defend and stand up for what is right and fair.  Can you think of an example where you have stood up for what was right and fair?  Can you think of a time when you witnessed someone else standing up for what was right and fair?

 

  1. Catholic Social Justice Principles

 

 

  • Human Dignity is the base for all other Catholic social justice principles. Are you familiar with any other Catholic social justice principles?

Dear parents,

Our first Google Meet was a success.  We were online for about 35 minutes.  We went over our day and played “Qui suis-je?”.  It was so good to see all of “my kids” again today.  Thanks for your help in getting everyone online. 

 

Today I also went into FreshGrade and looked at your child’s work.  I tried to leave comments for everyone who turned something in.  I especially enjoyed the videos the students posted about how they are spending their days.

 

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy Easter.  Thanks for your support over these past few weeks.  I was playing around with some new software today, and I made a little Easter message for everyone.  It isn’t perfect but I thought I should post it anyway.  I’ll be able to use the software to create lessons for the students over the break, so it was a nice way to try it out.

 

Take care! Be safe!

M. Boyer

Hi everyone,

 

We’re going to meet online on Google Meet at 2pm tomorrow.  As this is the first time, we’re going to take it slow and concentrate on speaking French and asking any questions that the students may have.  I’m sure there will be technical difficulties, so if that happens, please don’t worry.  We’ll get it working as quickly as we can.

 

Students are to log in to their HTCSD Google account and find Meet in the menu that looks like 9 little squares.

 

The meeting code will be (removed – contact M Boyer).  You will have received an email from Holy Trinity regarding the protocol for using Google Meet.  Please review this with your child prior to joining. 

 

Have a great evening!  Let me know if you have any questions.  I’m looking forward to seeing the class again tomorrow!

M. Boyer

We're still sorting out the technical and legal kinks in the online meetups.  I unfortunately have to cancel my online meeting time for today.  I'll hopefully have more information tomorrow.  If you child needs help, send me a quick email and we can work something out.

Monday Memo – La classe de M. Boyer

 

Hello everyone! Welcome to our first Monday Memo that will outline some learning activities for the week.  As per school division directives, grade 6 is to have about 5 hours of work, while grade 7 is to have about 10 hours of work.  Let me know how things go this week, as I’m doing my best to stick to these guidelines.  Not every student works at the same pace, so I’ll be checking in with a few families at the end of the week to get feedback on the amount of work that I’ve sent.

 

 

We will be using Google Meet to meet up online.  More information about joining the class online will be sent home early this week.  I will be available the rest of the week via email from 8:25am-3:00pm.  If you need face to face help, we could set up a time to meet online apart from the hours listed below.

 

My online meeting hours will be:

 

Tuesday: 1pm-2pm

Wednesday: 1 pm-2pm

Thursday: 2pm -3pm

 

Here are this week’s activities.  I’m hoping that I don’t overload families with this so I’m trying to ease us into a new way to learn.  Feel free to complete them in whatever order you see fit.

 

Our teachers were blessed to start the year with the very talented singer/songwriter, Steve Angrisano. His songs touched our hearts then but now our theme song Love Is What We Need means more than ever!  Click on the link and sing along!
