Well, we've had two weeks of school and it's been great. The boys and girls are getting used to our routines and things are running along smoothly. We started homework assignments last week and you should find the homework to be manageable. Students are asked to read 15 minutes each night and then record this in their reading log. On Friday of each week we will be looking for 60 minutes of reading time in total. Students will also have a comprehension and/or math practice activity each week. Students are encouraged to manage their time and can turn in the homework book on Friday.
We were lucky to have a trip to the Sculpture Saint John site last week. The two grade 4 classes were taken on a tour and were able to view sculptors and interns at work. There was an opportunity to ask questions. After our tour, the children used their new sketch books to sketch one or more of the sculptures. Surprise surprise, I had my group sketch the sculpture from The Netherlands!
This week we will be having a visitor from Scotland who is in Saint John for the Stonehammer Geoparks Conference. We are looking forward to this presentation which will take place on Wednesday.
Have a super week!
