This is Miss Em and I am excited to join the Grade 6 team this year. I will be teaching ELA and Science to this wonderful group of students. My goal for this year is to provide continuity of learning for both students in school and those who are at home. We will be making use of Google Classroom for the bulk of our assignments, with weekly instructions in both print and video, so students be sure you have joined the classroom and parents make sure to sign up for guardian emails!
Our ELA program will be based on the 6 Traits of Writing, foundational skills in reading comprehension, differentiated vocabulary building through Spelling City, and a variety of literature reviews (novel studies, short stories and poetry).
In Science we will cover Sky Science in late fall/early winter, Air and Flight in the winter, Investigation in spring, and circle back to Tress and Forests for a review in June. I look forward to building an engaging science program through a variety of activities including hands-on experiments and STEM projects.
