It is a pleasure to be working with you and your child this year. I have every confidence that we will have an enjoyable and productive year and that by working together we can help your child continue to experience academic success.
In the month of September, please sign your child's agenda nightly. This will help them get into the habit of showing you the work they have to do and will acquaint you with your child's homework, workbooks and assignments. Using the link to the right you can access a list of the current homework, helpful if students forget agendas or miss school.
For the first term, we will be working on the following units:
Math: Number Sense (read, writing, comparing, adding and subtracting large numbers)
English Language Arts: self-expressive and descriptive writing; punctuation and paragraphing; beginning of the leveled reading program
Social Science: Geography of central Canada; review of French Society circa 1745 and the fall of the French regime; study of Canada circa 1820 and the changes that came about after the Loyalist influx
Over the next few weeks, as your child adjusts to a new teacher, a new class and a different workload, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
