Math – I have almost finished reviewing the number sense strand of the math curriculum with both grades. Grade 5 have completed their second foundational outcomes quiz while grade six has finished their third one. There are four quizzes for each grade to complete on the key foundational outcomes.
Language Arts – The first week of the language arts assessment for grade 6 has finished. Next week on Tuesday and Thursday, the assessment will take place again. The grade fives are completing some end of grade comprehension activities as they have finished an ACRAR (non-fiction passage) this week. They will do another one next week while the grade sixes complete their assessment
I will be taking the grade six students to Stonepark tomorrow for their school orientation which takes place from 9:30-11:30 am. There is also a parents’ meeting on Tuesday, May 23rd @ 7PM at Stonepark for any parents that wish to learn more about the workings of the school.
Today, students also had their second of four classes with Cst. Markam Long of the Charlottetown Police Services. He is instructing the “Healthy Me” program offered by the Charlottetown police. The students are really enjoying discussing the material with Cst. Long as the focus is on Internet safety, making wise decisions/peer pressure, and information on drugs, alcohol and smoking.
