Assignments

English -  This month we will work on letter writing; letter format, envelope addressing, etc.. In grammar we will focus on sentences; diagramming, two subject, two predicates, fragments, etc. We will also be doing our English book report this month.


French - We have started a unit on commercials and advertisement strategies. We are also working on the French Canadian Artist projects.  We will also be doing small class activities to build their vocabulary.


Science - This month we are studying electricity! We will learn all about energy and the movement of circuts.


Math

This month, we will be continuing unit 6 : geometry and doing unit 8 on motion geometry called transformations. Your child will explore how shapes are moved or transformed.

In this unit, your child will:
• Describe and explore translations (slides), reflections (flips),
and rotations (turns).
• Perform and identify translations, reflections, and rotations.
• Draw translations, reflections, and rotations.



Grade 6 Math -

This month we are starting a mathematics unit on motion geometry called transformations.

Working on transformational geometry helps students develop spatial sense.
Many everyday activities, such as map reading, giving directions, and following assembly instructions, rely on these skills.

In this unit, your child will:

·         Identify and draw shapes on a grid.

·         Apply and describe single transformations of a shape on a grid.

·         Draw and describe the image of a shape after two or more transformations.

·         Use transformations to create designs.

·         Explore transformations using technology.

Here are some suggestions for activities you can do at home with your child:

·        Draw a map of your neighbourhood on a grid.
Identify the coordinates of 3 different locations.

·         Play games where coordinate grids are used (such as Battleship®).

·         Look for designs or patterns that show transformations (translations, reflections, rotations) or combinations of transformations; for example,
patterns on wallpaper, tiled floors, clothing, and art.
Have your child describe the transformations he or she sees.

·        Hold an object in front of a mirror. Have your child compare the object to its reflection image.



Art - We will be starting a unit on comic strips.
