This week in ELA, students will be continuing to work on how to build suspense when writing a story. For this assignment, make sure to go back and have a look at last week's notes, as student work must either raise story questions, use word referents, or the “Magic of Three.” Next week, we will start looking at how to write the main event of a story. Happy writing!
For this week's Health and Wellness addition, here is a video playlist that includes a workout for each day of the week. Enjoy!
I must say, I loved reading your elaborative detail stories. Very creative and descriptive work from many of you!

Hello parents and students,
As we move on to our 3rd week of online learning, I am happy to find that most students have begun to work through Google Classroom and managed to complete and hand in posted assignments. I will regularly update this blog to communicate to parents what students are learning as we move forward. If there are any questions about student learning or assignments, I encourage students and parents to email me at anytime with any questions.
For questions from students, please use email@example.com. For parent questions, please use firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week in ELA, students have continued working on their elaborative details when writing stories, and the creativity of students has proven to be strong! We will continue writing strong and effective details when describing an important object, setting, or character in a story. Students have the opportunity to practice this skill in this week's assignment, "Elaborative Details Part 3". This assignment is due Monday, April 27.
Just a reminder to students, I am available on Monday and Wednesday each week on Google Meet, from 10am-11am, and from 2pm-3pm. Class code is always RennerGrade6.

Hello students of 62 & 64,
I am still missing several students on Google classroom. Please ensure you are signed up for my Google classroom, and are signed up for both ELA and Social Studies. As well, make sure you are signed up for Ms. Sharma's classes on D2L. Her instructions are on her blog.
Class codes for Google classroom:

Hello! I am announcing that Humanities 6 will be on Google Classroom. Here is where you will find our classwork and assignments, and other things. BOTH 62 and 64 students should sign up for each class (ELA and Social Studies).
You will need to use your cbe email to sign up. Class codes are as follows:
Social Studies: seatwjk
While school work and curriculum will not be available until next week, take some time to familiarize yourself with Google classroom. For now, I have posted the question: How are you? What did you do over the break? This can be found in our Social Studies shell. I look forward to hearing from you all!
As our learning environment changes from in a physical classroom to online, there has been some restructuring of responsibilities to best suit the needs of students. As such, Humanities 83 will no longer be taught by me, but will be taken on Ms. Janey Chan. Please keep checking blogs and emails for more details as they come.
It has been a treat to teach you this last semester and to watch all of you grow as learners. I look forward to seeing your faces when we return to school, whenever that may be. Feel free to reach out by email anytime. Stay well and stay safe.
This message is for students and parents of 64 and 62
Hi students and parents,
It is unfortunate that I will be not be able to connect with you in person for the next while, but I am incredibly optimistic and looking forward to a different type of education after spring break. Please read this communication, as it includes a survey that will help us prepare for the learning after break. After the break, we will be working hard to create and build upon new learning environments. It will be a challenge, but it is one that I am eager to begin.
Please respond to the following questions and send to the following email: email@example.com for Ms. Sharma's homeroom class and firstname.lastname@example.org for Ms. Renner's homeroom. We will need this information by Tuesday, March 31st. Copy and paste the questions into the email and respond!
1. Do you have access to a computer, laptop, iPad/tablet or smart phone?
2. Do you have access to the internet?
3. How have you been during these last few weeks? Any concerns or comments?
At this time we thank you for your patience as we wait to hear about expectations and timelines. I thank you for your understanding as we are planning and getting organized and sorted. As soon as we know more, I will be in touch.
As you are aware, classes are cancelled this week. For Humanities, I will not be assigning any additional work during the break than what has already been assigned. Please regularly check emails and my blog as we get more information to stay updated. If you have questions in the meantime, the best email to reach me is email@example.com.
Over the next two days, it is important that all students come and collect their belongings from their lockers and gym lockers prior to spring break.
Be sure to bring the following things:
- Textbooks (Grade 8s: This means returning Worldviews: Contact and Change)
- Library books (The Giver included)
- Classroom books you may have borrowed from me
- School jerseys
- Music Books
- School instruments
