Only one month to go before the Christmas Break :-)
A Glance at Our Classroom This Week:
Literature Circles - groups will continue to explore Literature Circles - roles and responsibilities
Reading and writing activities - Literature Circles - from the Gift of the Magi
Letter Writing - parts of a letter, letters to Santa
Introduction to Basic Handwriting Techniques
Read Aloud - Parvana's Journey
Quick Writes - pertaining to Parvana's Journey
Special Note to Parents: A few of you have expressed to me concerns regarding student handwriting.
As a result, I have decided to incorporate into English class "Basic Handwriting" skills.
An excellent resource for this is the consumable booklet entitled "Canadian Handwriting - Book E".
I have ordered a class set of these booklets - one for each student.
The cost of these booklets is $ 7.00 each. When our booklets arrive I will send along another note to remind you of this payment. If this cost is a problem or concern, please let me know and the school will cover the cost.
