Almost time for the Holidays!!! With the holidays quickly approaching, there are a number of items will need to finish prior the Winter Break.
1) The students have begun their 4 week unit on New France. It will require nightly reading (approx. 5 pages) from the history text (chapters 1-5). Chapter one was due today. The completion of each chapter will be followed by a quiz. The quizzes are generally true and false. Chapter 2 will be due on Friday and there will be a quiz to accompany the deadline. Every week until the holidays will require 1-2 chapters of reading. The students are encouraged to make jot notes which will aid them on the quizzes and the final unit test December 22nd.
2) We have started a new 3 week unit in math covering the topic/strand of Data Management. There will be weekly quizzes on Fridays followed by a unit test Dec. 21st prior to the Winter Break.
3) Skiing trip information will be sent home in the next week or so as our three trips commence shortly after we return to school in January.
4) In January, the students will begin a 4 week unit in Geography which will run until the end of term 1, at which time they will return to science.
5) For those students interested in competing in speech competitions, organizers will be started and sent home over the break. Those interested in competitions must have a 3-5 minute speech which is persuasive (essay format) in nature.
Cue cards may be used, but only paragraph topics may be written on them and not the entire speech.
