Maintaining great communication between home and school is key to the partnership of a student’s success within school. West Rouge has a great website that allows parents and students to update their home calendars with special school events as well as links for each teacher. Please visit my link (Ms. Genco) for information and feedback about special events for our class, information about extra and intra- curricular activities as well as direct links to fantastic websites, which relate to what we are learning.

Classroom Activities

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Students are expected to do their very best at all times and use class time efficiently. Therefore they are expected to accomplish a lot during class! Those students who we find are slipping behind will bring work home. It is recommended that all grade 6 students spend not more than 60 minutes on homework daily. This can be accomplished by reading for fun, self-discovery and enrichment, writing and reviewing concepts from all subject areas as well as self-directed discovery through the ARTs.

All the MATHS!
Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

All students are encouraged to challenge themselves with math puzzles and fun math activities and review by playing card games with your friends and family, @Mathletics @ Khan Academy @ Mash it up Math, @ Illuminations @ MATH
ANTICS, etc... check out the links below! Look for math in your everyday lives.

We are already well into our math program. Along with several ministry and board resources the students are prepared for future textbook work with the Nelson and Pearson programs. Much of math is learned using problem-based learning. Concepts and skills are taught in 2-4 week periods which include daily practice work booklets or a specific research/ tasks / games- activity. At times math homework is assigned to review current lessons and is taken up the following day for consolidation. Please ensure that all homework is returned daily and organized and stored in backpacks.

Topics this them: Positive Growth mindset with all MATHS, Patterning and Algebra, Measurement, Geometry 2D and 3D, Working on fluidity and automaticity with numbers using Daily Number talks, Problem Solving across all strands utilizing various efficient strategies.
