Social Studies – We have completed the first unit in the text Culture Quest, and students received a review sheet today for a quiz we will be having on Friday. Students need to have this review completed for tomorrow so it can be corrected. They can then use this as a study guide for the quiz. Please ask your child about this and ensure that they are prepared for Friday.
Language Arts – We are four chapters into our class novel entitled “Iqbal”. It is a story about the actual Iqbal Masih, a young Pakistani boy, told as a realistic fictional account. The story addresses child bonded labour in Pakistan as the children in the story are working in a carpet factory. The assessment I’m using on their knowledge of the story is a storyboard they are creating using Pixton. They are constructing one comic panel per chapter that illustrates the main idea of the chapter. Check these out if you wish. Just ask your child for their login info.
