Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to week 7 of “Home Learning”!  I am hoping you are continuing to do well and keeping safe!  It’s nice that some of the restrictions have been lifted and some things are getting to a new normal. 

Literacy:  I have provided you with nine (9) ideas to explore.  This week I would like you to investigate and follow the instruction of five (5) of those ideas.  Be creative!    

Math:  This week we will review factors and multiples.  The new focus for this week is to learn how to calculate the third angle of a triangle when two of the angles are given.  You will also construct triangles using a ruler and a protractor.

Have a great week!

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to week 3 of “Home Learning”!  Here are a few highlights you will find in our learning suggestions this week:

  1. Our new topic in math is “Percent”. 
  2. Math art project using tessellations.

I hope everyone is enjoying the weather outside, especially since most of the snow has disappeared and the sun is shining so bright!  Bella (my dog) and I have been taking advantage of this weather and have enjoyed several walks up and down our lane. 

If you have any questions, concerns or you just want to share a story, please do not hesitate to reach out to me!  (I miss our daily conversations and stories!)

Hello Grade 6!

I hope everybody had a wonderful Easter weekend!

Welcome to our second week of “Home Learning”.  This week, I have included some writing prompts, word work, math questions on “Ratio’s” and the District’s STEAM newsletter.  In the STEAM newsletter, you will find a challenge specifically for grades 6-8 students that you may want to try!

I look forward to talking to each of you this week to see how you are doing, and how “Home Learning” is going.  As always, if you have any questions about this week’s post, please do not hesitate to email me at holly.brophy@nbed.nb.ca

Don’t forget to check out Miss. Downey’s and Miss. Mountain’s pages for ideas on “Wellness” and “First Nation’s Culture”.

Talk to you very soon!
