Dear Divisions 17 and 18,
For your first blog homework assignment, please think about the year stretching ahead of you. No matter what grade you are in, every school year provides the opportunity for growth, learning, new experiences and friendships.
Expectations are as unique as each of you. For your blog post, please write a short summary of your top one or two goals for the 2017 / 2018 school year. Remember that before you click “post”, you’ll check your response for spelling, capitals, and to make sure that you are answering the question as well as writing in full sentences.
Here are a couple of samples, from Tami, Karim and Jody’s goals for the year:
Jody: I’m looking forward to the new experiences of our new class and teacher arrangement. I’m so pleased that I get to work with two teachers I respect and admire so much. I’m also really delighted when I look around the classroom and see each of your faces. My goal this year is to get better at using agendas to keep track of our class events and reminders, and to try to eat a healthy lunch every day.
Tami: I was thrilled to look out and see our new class, your beautiful, bright, happy faces. I’m so excited to be in this new space with two of my favourite people, Jody and Karim, and all of you. My goal for this year is to make time to really celebrate what we’re doing well and find creative ways to support our class to embrace a leadership role within our class and school.
Karim: I am thrilled to embark on the wonderful journey this year working with my best friends Tami and Jody and our incredible students. I value and appreciate each of your unique talents and skills. You amaze me constantly! My goals for this year is to explore technology and see how we can use it even more in the classroom.
Remember to use your pseudonym when you write! Have fun!
We look forward to your responses,
