What Are We Up To? 

Math:
March 13: In math we are finishing up with our last 2 outcomes in Number Sense: Order of Operations and Multiplying/Dividing Decimals. After March Break, we will move onto our Patterning Unit. 


Science:
March 13: We are well into our Air and Aerodynamics Unit! Students have learned about the Properties of Air and are now focusing on how birds/insects fly. We are looking at the similarities between flying animals and airplane and determining how the 4 forces of flight work for both. Students are currently working on a "Flight of Birds" poster to showcase their learning. Assignment is posted on google classroom. 

Language Arts:
March 13: In LA we continue working through the Daily 5 structure. Which means students are making 3 choices each day about what they will work on (Writing, Reading or Vocabulary). 
As a class we are reading the novel "Holes". Students are using the novel to practice various reading strategies and reading response techniques. They complete vocabulary activities related to the novel.
In writing, we are focusing on Functional Writing and learning how to organize a well-written newspaper article.  

Social Studies:
March 13: In Social Studies, our focus is on local government. Students have learned about the different types of local government in various municipalities and how the election process works. Students also learned about the structure of local governments and what local governments are responsible for in their municipality. Students are working on an assessment task where they will create a resource for a newcomer to Slave Lake to explain how our local government works. Assignment is posted on Google Classroom.

I’m Mrs. Granta and I am SO EXCITED to be teaching grade 6! We are going to have a year full of FUN, learning and awesome ADVENTURES

A Little About Me:

I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario (where got MARRIED   this summer)! My husband and I both come from Italian families and I speak the language! I love to travel! I actually met my husband in AUSTRALIA,  where I went to school to become a teacher! Before this, I worked for DISNEY Cruise Line, where I was lucky enough to travel to many different countries. Having the MOUSE for a boss wasn’t so bad either! This will be my 4th year teaching in ALBERTA. I have taught Grade 2, Grade 4 and for a short time in Kindergarten and Grade 1. 

Communication is key! Please talk to your children about what we are learning, check our classroom website or contact me if you ever have any questions! You can send me a message on Remind, e-mail me through the "Contact Me" section of the website or give the school a call at (780) 849-3539.
