Well, we’ve made it to the last week of term 1! It has been a rollercoaster, hasn’t it?! Honestly, I couldn’t pick a better group of people to ride along with on all these twisty loops and hair-raising hills!
This week, we will be continuing our daily lessons on writing, arithmetic, cultural studies, spelling, vocabulary, and geometry. On Wednesday, you will be taking the first spelling test of the year! It will be the same format of the inventory you took where they will watch a recording of me telling you the words to spell. You will then use a key to check it and report how many you spelled correctly. That day, they will also complete a vocabulary activity using the word list they received last week. Please know that you will NOT need to have the definitions memorized, because it will be an “open book” activity. I just ask that you spend a few minutes each day looking at the words and definitions in preparation for the activity. The more you study the words, the easier the assignment will be.
Thursday is the last day of the term. All work from term 1 is due that day. Please go through all of the required assignments in Google Classroom to view teacher comments on submitted works and to complete any unfinished works.
I am looking forward to meeting virtually with your family at our upcoming student/parent/teacher conferences! Please use the following link to choose your conference time: https://signup.com/go/rJGSxoJ
Finally, remember that Friday, October 9th and Monday, October 12th are school holidays! Enjoy your much-deserved time away from the computer!
Have a wonderful weekend,
