Week of November 13 - November 17

 What's Happening in the Class?

Swim Lessons  - Monday and Wednesday- Nov. 6 -Nov. 22 - 11:20-12:30. 

Thank you to all the parents that attended Parent Teacher Interviews. Many did not know they could look at their child's work and some grades on Google Classroom. Ask your child to show you his Google classroom and how to get there. It is accessible from any computer or ipad. If you download the Google classroom app it is easier and skips the sign in step. If you see they have missing assignments they usually are late or not handed in. As we are in grade six, I expect the students to be accountable for their own learning. Some may be shocked to see "incomplete" on their report card due to not handing in assignments. 

In order to practice basic facts in math, there are some excellent apps, such as King of Math or Mental Math Cards. 

For direct instruction in video on certain math topics, this is a great website:  https://www.khanacademy.org/
