Who can believe the year is almost over. The grade 7-9s have been working hard in class each day. In ELA we are really taking time to read articles that engage the students, and can generate conversations that show their understanding, their connections to the real world and make them think outside the box. We are also reading the novel “Touching Spirit Bear” and looking at the concept of justice with both an Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal focus. Through this novel we are making even more connections to the culture and respect that is given to Elders and those who are willing to help us grow. Science is coming to an end with the grade 7’s studying man made and non-man made structures and the grade 8’s learning about fracking and clean water.
I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning to their Spring.
Science Fair prep is in full swing. The grades 7-9’s have been diligently working on their experiments and display boards. Feel free to drop by on the afternoon of April 3rd to see what the students have been working on!
Spring is fast approaching (yay!) and that means Science Fair for studetns in grades 4-9. Projects are moving along and we are looking for some interesting results. The tentative date for the LSK Science Fair is March 27. Keep your eyes peeled for more info.
In other news, my first month as grades 7-9 ELA teacher has been great. We've been working on silent reading with a purpose and writing persuasive letters to the principal, their teachers and even their parents! Seeing the writing process from start to finish has helped students see the importance of adding detail.
I hope everyone enjoys his or her upcoming March Break. As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to contact me at school, or find me on Facebook!
