After a very mild introduction to winter, it looks like things could remain chilly for the next week or two. However, things are still warm and cozy in the Grade 7 classroom! We are beginning to look at a thematic unit in ELA: Challenges. We will discuss, explore and delve into challenges literary characters are faced with, as well as reflect upon our own. We are currently studying decimal fractions in math. Social has us investigating Russia, and in Science, we will be experimenting with some mixtures and solutions.
January 27th is our scheduled ski day at Table Mountain. Look for a note to come home in the next day or two which will outline our day. We will be looking for several parent volunteers to join us on our adventure. If you are interested, please give me a call at the school. The class participated in a Prairie Meats fundraiser last week. All orders will be ready for pick up at the school on January 19 at noon. Please ensure you have made arrangements to have your child’s orders picked up at this time. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make it a success. Finally, I look forward to wrapping up our first semester! Report cards will be out shortly. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me and we can make arrangements to meet. Thanks to all the parents and families for their support and positive contributions thus far. 2012 is shaping up to be a great
