Grade 4

Week of Dec. 10 – 14

Dear Grade Four Families,

This week, we focused on the core competencies which are skills, knowledge and strategies that the students are learning to use in class to extend their understanding in all subject areas and to foster life-long learning.  The students listened to a book called “The 6 Cedar Trees” (Strong Nations Publishing Inc.) and learned about indigenous animals that were associated to each of the core competencies.  Your child has uploaded their work onto their Class Dojo portfolio.  Please have a look at it and ask your child to explain what they learned.  They’ve also done a self-reflection and goal setting.  My hope is that the your child will be able to grow and develop in all areas of the core competencies throughout the year.

Here are the reminders for the week:

  • Hot lunch forms for Jan – March due today
