January 2020 Note...

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. It was much needed. The kids came back rejuvenated and ready to learn. A reminder to parents and guardians to check the weather regularly to ensure kiddos are dressed with proper winter wear to stay warm while they play. 
In literacy, grade 3s have finished exploring  procedural text and are moving onto graphic novel narratives. Students have prior knowledge of standard narratives so are excited to experience this new genre. Students will be reading a variety and also creating their own. 
We have also begun our unit on the Acadians  and students are looking forward to learning about their culture and the many parallels and relationships to the Mi'kmaq. We will be doing some fun craft activities and some exploration through texts and videos. 

That's all for now! Over and out!
