Welcome to Miss Ricketts' Class

Hi Parents;

Can you believe it?  We are nearing the end of the year.  Even though the weather has changed and the school year is ending soon, your child still has curriculum to finish and review of concepts taught throughout the year.  Please try to keep your child's routines as consistent as you can so it is easier for him or her to concentrate on school.

In math, we have completed all of the 8 units.  During the month of June we will review many of the topics we covered with a major focus on multiplication and division to prepare for Grade 5.  Continue to study times tables with your child to increase his/her speed.  Our science unit on Plants is near completion and there will be a test in the second week of June.  After this we move into Building Devices that Move, which we have already worked on with Bricks for Kidz.  In reading comprehension, we focusing on all twelve strategies learned especially identifying the  author's purpose, interpreting figurative language and summarizing.  Our writing focus is article writing and persuasive writing.  In social studies, Mrs. Fontaine is discussing the cultures or backgrounds of the students.  What is their heritage? traditions? foods? etc...

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at: bonnie.ricketts@fmcsd.ab.ca  

Thanks so much for your attention,
Ms. Ricketts
