Welcome to 6-1.

 

Dear Parents,

Welcome to grade six! This will be a fantastic year where your child will continue to develop independence, responsibility, explore interests and learn about the world we live in. I will be teaching 6-1 Science, Social Studies and Math, as well as 6-5 Physical Education.  I am also a Learning Support teacher here at the school where I work with kids in all four grades who require extra support.  I am excited for the school year ahead!

Homework Expectations
For the classes I teach, I generally try to give the students as much class time to complete assignments as possible. However, as the due date approaches, your child may have some finishing up to do. If students are using their class time wisely, there should not be much homework assigned. I give a lot of notice for due dates so students have ample time to prepare given their busy schedules. Please have your child speak with me regarding conflicts prior to the due date, if necessary.

Agendas
I will post major assignments, projects, test and quiz dates on this site under the homework tab.  I also have a homework board in the classroom with all dates posted.  My expectation is that your child will use some form of an agenda, either print or digital.

Assignments
I post copies of assignments, projects, textbook pages, lesson sheets, etc. on this site under the curriculum tab in the appropriate subject folder.  If your child is away for any reason, all of the work they require is included in the subject folders.

Study Habits
Grade six is an important year in terms of developing good study habits. If students do not have assigned homework for the evening, they should be spending 15 – 20 minutes reviewing material covered in a subject area. The vocabulary in science and social studies is challenging. Regular review for short periods of time throughout the year will be extremely beneficial to your child at the end of the year when writing the Provincial Achievement Tests.  I also encourage you to have your child share their class work with you on a regular basis.

Contact Me
Please contact me any time. The best way to reach me is through email at ccarpenter@rockyview.ab.ca. I will do my absolute best to respond within a 24 hour period.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you and your child this year.

Sincerely,
Corinne Carpenter
