Grade 6 Class

November 2017

Fall, Halloween ~ Such a fun and creative season!  I commend the parents and the students on their fabulous effort with their costumes.  The creativity and originality never ceases to amaze me!

Our class novel, The Hatchet is entertaining the class as-well-as challenging them to think outside the box when it comes to interpreting then writing about the character.   As we come to the end of the novel, we will be starting a new assignment looking at Brian's development throughout his journey.

The class has been given their term project for Science and Socials ~ Genius Project.  This is largley an in-class assignment, however, check ins with your child will keep them on task and accountable to the time frame.  DUE NOV 3rd

In Math, we have completed theAddition and Subtraction Unit and are now looking at Multiplication (with 2&3 digits as well as decimals).  After this we will move on to Division.  It is beneficial if you check with your child each night looking for homework ~ incomplete from class time, or possible corrections.  Keeps them accountable as well as ensures the practice they need.  Mathletics is always another option for students to practice their skills in Math.  Unfortunately we only have time for one session in Mathletics a week, so please encourage your child to take advantage of this fabulous computer tool.

A few dates to consider :
Genius Project is due this Friday November 3rd
Remembrance Day Posters due Tuesday, November 14

Homework Book is the  best form of communication.  Please feel free to make notes, comments or requests in the HWB as I check these daily.  I also post important dates, assignments and information, along with weekly spelling words, on this web site each week.

Library is Monday - each student is able to take out two library books for a week.  They are to be returned / renewed each Monday.  If the books are not processed on Monday, the student is not able to take another library book.

PE is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday - Full gym strip required i.e. Running shoes, shorts / leggings, t-shirt
                                                                            * missing gym strip 3 times within a term results in dropped grade
                                                                      -    Need written permission from parent if excused from gym (HWB), especially if for an extended time.

Novel - each student must have a novel in their desk for personal reading at all times.  There are books available within the classroom if necessary.

Reminder :  All parents who wish to volunteer / drive need a NEW driver's abstract and copy of your insurance papers
                    along with a Criminal Records Check on file (valid for 5 years)

Here's to a year of growth in learning, faith and social development......  And perhaps a little fun, too.
With kind regards, 
Lexie Wilson
