Report Cards, Christmas Concert

First term report cards have gone home with your child today. Inside there should be a slip to fill out saying that you saw the report card.  Please have your child bring the slip back to me. If for some reason there was no slip in the envelope, just drop me an email or write a note to say that you saw it. Thanks!

Notices also went home today with information regarding the grade 3/6 Christmas concert. Please check with your child for this.

Language Arts – Students are to have the rough copy of their persuasive essay completed for tomorrow as they will begin to work on their good copy in class tomorrow afternoon.

Math Grade 6 – Students just completed a unit on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals last week. The quizzes on this unit will be returned to them on Monday.

To date, the students have covered 3 of the 8 foundational learnings in the grade 6 math curriculum from the three units of study we’ve completed. We are currently working on developing an understanding of mixed numbers and improper fractions and how fractions relate to decimals and percentage.

Writing – Students were given a writing assignment today that I will be formally marking. They have to create a persuasive essay, and they have three options to choose from.  Along with these three options, they have an example of a persuasive piece of writing in their writing duotang. They also have a checklist to make sure they are including the necessary details.

The rough copy is due this Friday, so they have three days to complete this. This rough copy will not be worked on in class, so students need to manage their time at home to ensure it is finished by Friday.
