Elementary Resource

Kwe’/Hi

March was a busy month in which everyone enjoyed winter carnival and March break. We have seventeen students receiving resource support in their Language arts skills.  Many of our resource students are learning sound-symbol correspondence and/or decoding skills. Every resource student is working at their own pace and making gains in their literacy skills. It is a pleasure working with the students and observing their growth in reading and writing. I am looking forward to some nice spring weather in April and wish everyone a Happy Easter .

If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to the program planning process or elementary resource, please feel free to contact me at the school.

February was a busy month celebrating Valentine’s Day and Family Day. We have seventeen students receiving resource support in their Language arts skills.  Many of our resource students are learning sound-symbol correspondence and/or decoding skills. Every resource student is working at their own pace and making gains in their literacy skills. It is a pleasure working with the students and observing their growth in reading and writing. I hope everyone enjoys their well deserved break in March and have a happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Happy New Year! Welcome back to school! I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. I am looking forward to working with the students in person and observing each one grow as readers and writers. Many of our resource students are participating in the “Road to Reading” Program and are on the red (first) level. When students complete this level, they should be able to do the following:

  1. Identify all consonant sounds.

  2. Identify the five short vowel sounds (/a/, /i/, /o/, /u/, and /e/).

  3. Read and spell closed syllable words (e.g., bat, sit, hot, run, fed).

  4. Identify the diagraphs th, ch, sh, and -ck.

  5. Read and spell closed syllable words with the digraphs th, ch, sh, and -ck (e.g., thick, shin, chick).

Also, there are three students participating in the Edmark Reading Program and three Primary students participating in the phonological awareness program “Road to the Code”. Each student is working at their own pace and the programs are adapted to meet the needs of individual students.

If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to the program planning process or elementary resource, please feel free to contact me at the school.

I started the regular resource support schedule in November. It has been a busy month with eighteen students receiving resource support in their Language arts skills. Many of our resource students are learning sound-symbol correspondence and decoding skills. Every resource student is working at their own pace and making gains in their literacy skills. 

As we are now entering into online learning, I am looking forward to supporting staff and students in providing for the diverse learning needs of the students during this time to ensure their success.

Please stay safe, wash your hands and enjoy some fun educational activities at this time with your family. I wish everyone a Happy Holiday!

Kwe’/Hi,

October has been a busy month for both students and staff, adjusting to school routines and celebrating Treaty Day, Thanksgiving and Mi’kmaq history month. I completed administering the Test of Preschool Literacy (TOPEL) to the Primary students for the Martin Family Initiative (MFI), and the CAT-4 to grades 1 to 4 with Kelly Oliver. In November I will complete administering some math and reading assessments to support students program planning. After the tests are completed I will start seeing resource students on a regular basis, supporting them in their literacy and math skills. I am really looking forward to working with the students and supporting their academic growth.

I would encourage parents/guardians to communicate with their child’s classroom teacher any concerns they may have pertaining to their child’s school success. Parents/Guardians and classroom teachers can refer a child for program planning to assist in identifying the child’s strengths and needs.

Kwe’/Hi,

September has been a busy month with both students and staff adjusting to COVID-19 protocols. I’ve enjoyed welcoming students back to school and I’m looking forward to working with students on a regular basis soon. In September, we held some site-based meetings to support students and their needs. In October, I am looking forward to completing these meetings and working with parents/guardians during program planning by telephone and/or video conferences. I will also be administering the Test of Preschool Literacy (TOPEL) to the Primary students for the Martin Family Initiative (MFI), and administering some math and reading assessments to students. 

I would encourage parents/guardians to communicate with their child’s classroom teacher any concerns they may have pertaining to their child’s school success. Parents/Guardians and classroom teachers can refer a child for program planning to assist in identifying the child’s strengths and needs.

Kwe’/Hi,

I hope everyone is excited to begin another school year as I am.  I am looking forward to welcoming back students and continuing with Resource Support. My main responsibility as resource support is to work collaboratively with classroom teachers, parents, administration and other service providers to assist in program planning to meet student needs.  The first step in September will be to schedule Program planning meetings to support our students and their needs. I am looking forward to meeting parents/guardians during these program planning meetings throughout the school year. Due to COVID-19 protocols the meetings may look different this year with telephone and/or video conferences. I will also be busy administering the Test of Preschool Literacy (TOPEL) to the Primary students for the Martin Family Initiative (MFI).

I would like to thank parents, guardians and students for their hard work and dedication this year. It has definitely not been our typical school year and I hope everyone enjoys a wonderful summer break; you all deserve it. I continue to miss all the students and look forward to seeing them when school begins again. Please stay safe, wash your hands and enjoy some reading this summer. 

I would also like to congratulate all the graduates! I have always enjoyed teaching early elementary and it is a real pleasure to see past students succeed and achieve their high school diploma. It is with lots of respect and admiration that I wish all the grads the best in their future adventures,

Take care of yourself and others.

Kwe’/Hi
