Elementary Resource

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. 

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.

Wela’lin/Thank you,

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). 

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 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

I am missing all my students! I am looking forward to when we can return to school and see each other again. I hope everyone has a Happy Mother’s Day and that we all get to enjoy some warmer spring weather soon! Please stay safe, wash your hands and enjoy some fun educational activities at this time with your family.

Kwe’/Hi

March was a busy month, before the extended break, with fifteen students receiving resource support in their Language arts and/or math skills. We got to participate in some fun winter carnival activities and two students celebrated milestones in their learning. One student mastered 100 Edmark reading words and received an award, and another student, Treasure McDonald, completed Level 1 of the Edmark Reading Program. We celebrated with an award and cake in her classroom. Way to go Treasure! It’s great to observe every resource student working at their own pace and making gains in their literacy skills. I am missing all my students and look forward to welcoming them back as soon as possible. Please stay safe, wash your hands and enjoy some fun educational activities at this time with your family.

February has been a busy month with fifteen students receiving resource support in their Language arts and/or math skills. Many of our resource students are learning sound-symbol correspondence and/or decoding skills concentrating on short vowel sounds. Three students are participating in the Edmark reading program and are making good progress. One student has mastered 100 Edmark words and received an award certificate and a prize. 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.

Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays.  The school year is well under way so many students have already participated in many new learning experiences that will assist them in their development as confident readers and writers.

Many of our resource students are participating in the “Road to Reading” Program and are on the Red (first) level. Upon completion of this level students 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).

Currently we have three students participating in the “Edmark Reading Program” and four Primary students participating in the phonological awareness “Road to Code” program.  Each student is working at his/her 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.
