 Dear Students and Parents of PIF 6,7,8, and 6/7English,

I hope this message finds you well.  All students are asked to go to their Teams page to get their assignments and class materials beginning tomorrow.  See past notes should you need a refresher (May 19 Post) on how to get there. Remember that you should be notified by email when assignments are posted. Assignments will be posted daily on Teams.

Daily Procedure: Students will be asked to” Join” or “accept” their class meeting on Teams.  I will start with a discussion question, mini-lesson and then follow with an opportunity for students to ask questions about the assignments and the subject in general. Students are to participate in class by attending the meeting, participating aloud or through “chat” online class and complete weekly assignments.

Expectations: Participation online or at home is compulsory for all students to the best of your ability. Assignments and participation will contribute to your Term Two mark.  I will be available to help students through Teams and email. 

Look forward to chatting with all students tomorrow!

PIF students are reading, reviewing, and recording what they learn.  A Journal entry page has been added to your weeklong assignment.  Instructions are in the previous post(below). We will have a Team chat Thursday and Friday this week about it.

6/7 Stewart.  Your posted reading assignment is due tomorrow.  Continue working on your story. The draft should be complete.  I will post my favorite poem of all time-Sour Patch Kids.  This poem has wonderful imagery and strong verbs. Read it a few times and then I would like you to highlight the vivid language. As well, see if you can find examples of figurative language- similes, metaphors, alliteration and onomatopoeia.  I will attach some examples in TEAMS.

Once you have played with the language, go back, and look at your story. Are there examples of figurative language? Can you try to add a few?  Use a colored pen when revising.

Dear Students and Parents of PIF 6,7,8, and 6/7English,

I hope this message finds you well.  If we are learning from home on Monday, November 1, all students are asked to go to their Teams page to get their assignments and class materials. See past notes should you need a refresher on how to get there. Remember that you should be notified by email when assignments are posted.

6/7 English has their writing journal and rubric.  Lessons will be posted daily if needed. There is a reading assignment already posted due on Tuesday.   Reading your own book and practicing reading strategies such as Somebody Wanted But So.

All PIF students will be asked to log on to to practice their French for 20 minutes a day.  If you have access to Netflix/ kids shows on YouTube, watch one of your shows in French.  Change the subtitles and audio to French.  Watch a few minutes and then see how many words you know. Keep a record of new words.  Remember, you are listening for pronunciation, fluency, and key words. I don’t expect you to understand all the words. Practice makes perfect.

Have a great weekend. Happy Halloween!

Mrs. Frost

Hi everyone,

I hope this finds you well.  I cannot believe that this is the final week of “Learning from Home”.  I enjoyed our class meeting last Friday, chatting about our books and upcoming project! We will have our last class meeting this Friday at 11:00 a.m.  Please, spread the word.

This week there is a graphic organizer posted on Teams to help organize your thoughts added to the assignment. The due date is September.  As we discussed, it may be easier to choose things that represent your life during Covid-10 as life happens.  Anything that you notice can be jotted down and/or listed. This is NOT a detailed written assignment.

I also added one of my favourite poetry assignments with which you can have fun. If you want me to see your parody of “This Is Just to Say” poem, send it in this week. Mine involves candy and, you guessed it, an apology.

Even though this is the final week of officially Learning from Home, DLMS teachers’ pages are full of great ideas. Remember that you may check out any teacher’s assignments, and try them should you want more learning opportunities over the summer.  Choose whatever interests or challenges you. More exciting, is your world is a world to explore this summer. The best kind of learning is doing activities with your family- playing games, cooking together, going on hikes, doing projects and so on.   I hope that you continue to take every opportunity to learn with your family and friends this summer. 

I will continue to post messages over the summer.

Stay safe,

Mrs. Frost

In the attachment below, you can read the rationale and overview of an exciting project that we will begin now and finish in September.  Over the summer, we invite you to start collecting information, photos and memories of your life with the Covid-19 pandemic, and your life despite the Covid-19 pandemic.To get a head start, start working on Part 1 and 2 during these final two weeks of Learning From Home.

Part 1: I am going to have you begin reading some articles from "Currents4Kids". (Some of you may have already completed some of these.) The articles are:

 Fighting A New Virus, Feb 7              How to Squash a Pandemic, March 20

 Suds Up, March 2                                Keep Your Distance, April 2

 Leading By Example, April 10     You may continue to do the quizzes if you like.

Read at least two of the articles.

 Part 2:  Keep a journal/list and reflect on how Covid-19 has affected you, your life, society, music, commercials, etc.   Note interesting things that represent the times that we live in.

The project information is on my Teams assignments, so you may access it there, and record your thoughts.

Have a good week and stay safe!

Mrs. Frost

Hi everyone,

I hope that you had a wonderful long weekend!  

 Assignment One:  Read “Cooking for a Crowd"

Assignment Two:  Do the "On-the-lines” and “Between-the-lines” online quizzes.

Assignment Three: Complete the question of your choice Under STUDENT RESPONSE. I suggest that you use the spellcheck built into the response box. 


Looking forward to chatting with you all later this week.

In preparation for our book chats on Thursday, consider these responses: What is your favourite part so far, and why? Which character would you be friends with, and why?

Stay safe,

Mrs. Frost

Hi everyone,

 I hope that you are doing well. I enjoyed reading your responses! Since there was so much interest, I am ordering the book, Harpoon of the Hunter by Markoosie Patsauq.  You may borrow it in the fall.

Assignment One:  Read “Homegrown Soccer Star”.

Assignment Two:  Do the “On-the-lines” and “Between-the-lines” online quizzes. Class average was 80% last week. Keep up the great work!  I like going back and checking my answers to make sure that I understood the question.

Assignment Three: Under STUDENT RESPONSE, choose a questions and write a short paragraph in response. Enter your response in the space and submit by clicking on REVIEW.  If you do not have time to finish, click on DRAFT and finish it later.   I may send it back to you to make punctuation changes if needed. J

HOW TO AVOID LOSING YOUR WORK: Usually when typing on a website, I type it up in a Word document first. I run spell check and then paste it into the website. When using Word, my work is automatically saved, so I do not lose it.   There is also a spellcheck built into the response box. 

INDIVIDUAL OPPORTUNITY FOR LEARNING: Click on FIND OUT MORE. Teachers were recommended to pass on a link related to immigration since Phonzy, the soccer star, immigrated to Canada from Ghana. Check out the link to Pier 21, Canadian Museum of Immigration in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Remember to keep reading your novel daily. I am planning a book chat with our class next week. I can’t wait to chat with you!

In preparation for our book chat/Skype conference, consider your responses to the following questions:

1)     What is your favourite part so far, and why?

2)     Which character would you be friends with, and why?

Have a great week! Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you have a question or concern.

Stay safe,

Mrs. Frost
