Hello parents and students,
I have taken Monday and Tuesday off this week to spend with my family, and one day to study curriculum. I have a very capable substitute in for me working with students. If there are any questions or concerns while I am out, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will try to check email regularly and respond promptly.
Here’s the plan for the next two days:
- Students will spend one more class period in the library, working on their illustrated poetry assignments. This assignment MUST be submitted to Mrs. Charlton in class on Thursday.
- Students should maintain their independent reading, whenever possible. However, there will not be a novel reflection due this week – more to come on this on Thursday.
- Students will be working through an in-class poetry activity on mood. They will be asked to apply the lesson to revising their poetry assignment.
- Students will be working on some pre-reading activities as an introduction to the novel Shattered, including viewing the movie The Pursuit of Happyness, with a written response.
Have a great couple of days, and take time to reflect, on Remembrance Day, for all that veterans have and continue to do to ensure we have rights and freedoms in Canada, and to reflect on all that still needs to occur to ensure peace around the world.
