Hello from High School Resource,
Resource Students have been working in a small group setting on vocabulary building, reading fluency and grammar rules this month. We are almost finished our first novel studies together on books like "The Magic Treehouse: Pirates at Dawn" and Jerry Spinelli's "Stargirl." Keep up the great work everyone!
We have had a busy month of learning in the resource room! Our 7-9 students have been working on vocabulary building and reading fluency, and are just beginning to write creative fairy tales with a moral.
We had a special field trip on October 18th with Mason Pierro-MacDonald. Mason is a lover of classical music, so we were very lucky to have the opportunity to attend a performance of Jeremey Dutcher along with symphony Nova Scotia.
Jeremy Dutcher is a member of the Tobique First Nation, one of six Wolastoqiyik reserves in New Brunswick. Dutcher delivered these words in English and in his traditional Wolastoq language, with the phrase: "Psiw-te npomawsuwinuwok, kiluwaw yut!" Translated: "All of my people, this is for you!"
The music was beautiful and we all agreed it was a wonderful experience!
Welcome back LSK.
My name is Meredith and I am happy to be back at LSK for my second year as High School Resource. In the Resource Room we are working on building our students' strengths and providing them with strategies, supports, and skills to become successful, confident, and independent learners. I am looking forward to working as a team with classroom teachers to support learning skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, and inquiry-based activities. Our Resource Room will also have available hours for drop-in tutoring and extra help for students in grades 9-12. Interested students should check the schedule on my door, or come talk to me to book time for extra help. It's going to be a wonderful year.
