Welcome back. Last week as challenging to say the least. I trust everyone was able to weather the storm. We will continue to work through the material that had been planned for last week. With that being said, the schedule is as follows:
French - Grades 6 and 7 students continue to draft an informative writing piece, whilst the grade 8 students continue to delve into the sections of a narrative writing piece either about a tale/legend or an adventure. As always, writing traits continue to be taught throughout as well as grammar, verbs, conventions, homophones, guided reading, etc.
Math - Decimal numbers (understanding place value less than 1000, multiplying, and dividing) will be our unit of study. Our focus this week will be on division. Additional work and remaining homework will be sent home to be completed. Please let me know if you wish to have any additional work for your child to complete at home. Refer for my "web link" for numerous math websites to practice at home.
Please note that Mathletics will be commencing soon. Students will receive a username and password this week. Various activities/assignments will be handed out as we progress in math throughout the year and will either be completed at school or assigned as homework.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact me at the school. I will respond promptly via telephone. Let's have a great week at GG!
