Welcome back! Please note that our school Remembrance Day service will be held Thursday morning in the gymnasium…”Lest We Forget” Report cards go home on Monday (Nov 14th). Parent-teachers interviews next Thursday evening and Friday morning.
French - Grade 6 students were introduced to the elements of an adventure and/or personal writing piece. Likewise grade 7 students have commenced a mystery story and the grade 8 have outlined and begun an explanatory writing piece. As always, writing traits continue to be taught throughout as well as grammar, conventions, homophones, guided reading, etc.
Math - We have begun our new unit on patterns and equations. Students have been exploring patterns within columns in a table of values via input/output machines. Relationships amongst lager tables consisting of more than one column have also been explored. Input and output values have been described using various pattern rules. Please let me know if you wish to have any additional work for your child to complete at home.
If you have any questions, please contact me at school. I will respond promptly via telephone. Let's have a great week at GG!
