What Are We Up To? 

Math:
In math we are working on our "Data Analysis" unit. Students are working on selecting, justifying and using appropriate methods of collecting data. We are busy collecting data using a variety of methods, graphing the data and analyzing our results. One of our main outcomes is focused on creating and interpreting line graphs. Please click on the "Math" page in the menu for details about we are learning and links to practice websites.


Science:
We are working on the last few outcome of our Sky Science Unit! Students are exploring patterns in the night sky and learning about the sun, the moon and the stars. Please click on the "Science" page in the menu on the left for details about what we are learning! This is also a great study guide! 

Language Arts:
In LA we are 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). 
With reading, students are working on using the CAFE menu to choose their focus area and implement strategies while reading. Our focus in writing is on expository writing. Students have just completed an expository writing piece of their choice. Now we will work through the writing process to revise our work. 

Social Studies:
In Social Studies, our current focus is on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Students are learning about the 8 sections in the Charter, making personal connections and applying them to various scenarios.

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.
