Grade 6

February 24-28, 2020

Dear Grade 6 Families,

The students have put on their creative thinking hats this week, planning and designing a mobile, inspired by Alexander Calder. I enjoyed seeing the collaboration of students as they were cutting the wires with their pliers.

I am pleased with how the students peer-edited their assignment on First Nations Principles of Good Governance. They were very focused as they typed their paragraphs in class. I am looking forward to seeing their drawings for each of the different sections. See rubric on Google classroom.
