FIRST WEEK OF ADVENT: HOPE
First Sunday of Advent
Jesus, you are light even in the darkest places.
Help us to trust in you when we are lost or lonely.
Shine hope into our hearts we pray.
Social Justice Project:
If you haven't already done so, please take a minute to complete the form regarding our Social Justice project in support of the Therapeutic Clown Program at CHEO. We will be closing the form at the end of the day Monday. The Grade 5 teachers will put the ideas together and all the students will come together and create a plan as a Grade team, going forward.
Math: This week, we will be wrapping up our Patterning Unit with a test on Wednesday. Please be sure to come see me if you are struggling with any of the goals we discussed in class, and are posted on our blog.
Language: This week we will continue our unit study on Narrative Writing. We will be looking at the elements of a plot curve. You will be asked to start your own narrative, using the plot curve to plan out your story.
Things to reflect on for your own language development. Are you reading every day? This is critical to you strengthening your reading and writing abilities. And, it's just plain awesome! There's nothing better than curling up with a good book and getting lost in the story. Another way to becoming stronger is to read each other's blogs and leave comments for one another. You are all working so hard, it would be great to support each other.
Have a great week!
