Room 23June 23, 2023
It seems hard to believe that ten months has come and gone, and that our school year is coming to an end. I am extremely proud of all the growth the members of Room 23 made. It has been a pleasure working with such a wonderful group of young people, and getting to know their families.
In Science we will finish off the year by learning about the growth and changes that occur in plants. We are doing this by creating and looking after our own “mini-gardens”. I hope that the students will continue enjoying looking after their “gardens” throughout the summer months.
In Social Studies we will be researching a country, and focusing on the similarities and differences as they pertain Canada.
In Language Arts we will continue to practice the three main genres of writing (narrative, expository and persuasive) through a variety of activities in order to further develop the ability to express ourselves in writing for different purposes.
In Mathematics we will be learning about fractions and further reviewing materials that were covered throughout the year.
I would encourage all students to maintain and build upon the academic gains they have made this last year over the summer months. Reading daily for pleasure (magazines, comics and brochures, etc.), help with preparing a meal by reading a cookbook or following instructions on packaging are just two of the many ways in which students can apply their literacy or mathematical skills.
In closing, I would like to wish you all a safe and restful summer, and look forward to hopefully seeing all of you again in September.
