SOCIAL: 

I can explain my rights outlined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

I can explain how the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms defines and protects my rights

This week, we began our presentations on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms family connections.  Students are required to choose one component of their presentation and teach our class more about their families as well as answer any questions. 

SCIENCE:  

I can identify human actions that enhance the existence of forests. 

I can identify human actions that threaten the existence of forests. 

This week, we discussed what types of things enhance the forests and threaten the forest.  Students looked at a detailed photo of a forest scene to determine what could help or hurt the forest. Some of what students came up with were: conks, water sources, trees, animals and animal scat, mushrooms, fallen logs for enhancing the forest. We then discussed types of reforestation, including natural generation and direct seeding. 


Looking ahead: 

This coming week, we will start our week with a “show what you know” review of what we have learned lately (factors and multiples) and we will continue our work with investigating factors.  In ELA, students will investigate their own writing and break it down into different writing strategies to determine goals for their next writing assignment.  In Social, we will continue with our presentation and hopefully begin work with municipal government.  And lastly, in Science, as we wrap of Trees and Forests, we will begin our final project.  The following week will be our unit test.

I can identify human actions that enhance the existence of forests. 

I can identify human actions that threaten the existence of forests. 

I can identify an issue regarding forest use and explore different perspectives in that issue. I can identify actions that might be taken on the issue. 

This week, students got to take on the role of “land manager”. They were given 80 hectares of land to distribute to a number of stakeholders and had to justify their reasoning as well as identify problems that wildlife may encounter on their developed map. 

 






Looking ahead: 

This coming week, we will be circling back to story writing. Students have created writing goals from their last story and will be applying them to their next one.  In math, we will begin work with factors and multiples before coming back to multiplication with decimals.  In social studies, students will present their Charter connections to the class. And lastly, in Science, we will continue our learning about human uses of forests.

Have a great weekend!

September 1 - 11

WELCOME TO GRADE 6! 

Wow! What an amazing start to the 2020/ 2021 school year it has been for us in Room 16! Everyone is adjusted well to the new routines and has been doing their part to keep themselves and those around them safe and healthy.


Please read the following important information:

Outdoor Classroom: As we practice social distancing in our learning community, we will be utilizing our Outdoor Classroom.  While outside we will participate in various learning experiences and engage in our natural environment.  It will be important that students dress for the weather each day.  Layered and warm clothing will be crucial to a positive learning experience.  Proper footwear, coats, mitts and a toque will ensure we stay warm and ready to learn.

Indoor and Outdoor Shoes:  It has been EMJ’s school policy that each student wear separate indoor and outdoor footwear. Due to Covid-19, we will are changing our usual routine.  When the weather changes - either rain or snow - students will then need separate indoor and outdoor footwear. Their indoor shoes need to be suitable for gym class (non-marking running shoes) and outdoor shoes need to be weather appropriate.

Home Reading & Basic Fact Practice:  I highly encourage each student to read 25 to 30 minutes each night.  I understand that schedules are busy and families are always on the go, but daily reading is important to all children’s educational growth. You and your child can figure out a time to read and what material is most engaging. Please check out our Google Classroom for Basic Fact games and practice - I suggest 5-10 minutes/day. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. 

Supplies:  Students may bring in their own supplies if they choose, but be assured that we have supplies in our class for everyone.  Our current school order was delayed but we have received our pencil crayons and will be receiving pencil boxes soon.  The only optional supply we are requesting if possible, is a standard binder.  We will be supporting our students as they learn to organize their binders by subject and unit.  

Google Classroom: Our Google Classroom is up and running! Students are able to log in with their CBE gmail account and password. 

Water Bottles:  Water bottles are necessary this year.  I ask that they be taken home daily to be washed.

Ear Buds:  Students will need ear buds when using the technology at our school.  Please send in a pair as soon as possible.  If able, earbuds with a microphone will be valuable as we plan to use this feature at school and home.

Library Book Exchange:  As well as our classroom library, we will be having a book exchange from the Library on a scheduled basis.  Mrs. B and her library expertise will be mobile this year as students will request books, choose books virtually and learn to use our eLibrary.  

Parent Volunteers:  Parent volunteers have always been a crucial element of our school year.  Unfortunately 2020-2021 may not allow us to utilize this resource, but we will keep you informed if things change.

Thank you for all of your support in making this year the best it can be for students!
