In L.A we have finished our novel study...we will move onto poetry. In math we will continue with geometry. Science we are doing Simple machines. The big one is HACE. We are starting our puberty unit. Please be aware that there is a big distinction made between sexual development (which we will be talking about in great detail) and sexual activity (which we will NOT be talking about in great detail). I know this is a difficult topic for parents to broach with their kids but be aware they may have questions or make comments based on what we are learning. I am sticking to the curriculum which states that we are to teach the 'physical, social and emotional changes associated with puberty'. While often an uncomfortable topic, I try hard to make the discussions open and honest. If you have any concerns, comments, or questions, please feel free to contact me.
We still need permission slips for Aboriginal day, Swimming lessons, and the year end swimming & BBQ...PLEASE GET THEM IN ASAP!
