    {pe.gif} This month the students will continue to improve their hockey skills. We will do drills to improve their control of the ball, stick handling, passing and shooting. We will also play small sided games to put all the actions into motion. The students will be able to work on fair team play during these times as well as participation throughout.
    Once we have completed the hockey unit we will than move onto soccer, which has similar skills that are used in hockey, these skills are transferable skills so this is why these sports are done together, one after the other.

    Welcome Students and Parents to the great month of March!
    I hope that all students and their families had a great break. It may take some time to get the students back into the groove of things but I will do my best to get them going. This month we have a lot on the go as the end of the school year is only 4 months away! Some of the important things this month are:
    REMINDERS & UPCOMING EVENTS
    March 2 - Classes resume
    March 4 - PAC Mtg. @ 1:30
    March 16 - 20- An ti Bullying Week
    March 20 - Anti Bullying Theme Day ……’Wear Pink and White’
    March 20 - Student Presenting Assembly @ 10:30
    March 27 - Last Day of Term 2
    April 1/2 - Student Led Conferences 2:00p.m. dismissal on both days
    April 10 - Term 2 Formal Report Card Issued
    This month in Language Arts we will be covering a variety of different poetry. We will learn and discuss everything from the types of poetry, how to write each one and also learn about famous poetry from around the world. The students will continue to be given weekly/bi-weekly spelling tests, and we will close out the month with the beginning of an independent novel study.
    In Science we will begin the month by reviewing the first two chapters which covered; living things, and their kingdoms. We have had two quizzes so far so it is time for an assessment of these two chapters. The rest of the month we will be working with the microscopes and discovering living things that are not seen by the naked eye, as well as discovering how living things adapt to their environments.
    Math will continue on as usual. The students should have math work nearly every day as homework is assigned at the end of each lesson. We will be covering 2-3 chapters this month. We will be working on ratios and fractions, and angles. The lessons are teacher guided and the students are given the information required to complete the assigned work. If the students do not understand a question they are encouraged to highlight it and bring it to the attention of the class the next day, because if one student does not understand, it is likely that others do not either.
    This month in P.E we will be covering skills in; Hockey and soccer. There will be an emphasis on skill acquisition in these sports. Passing, control and shooting are all things we will work on and improve. While also working on; fair team-play, participation and effort.
    I look forward to a great month and if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at any time.

    Every Monday morning, students will receive a new spelling list, usually containing about 20 words. Every Friday, students will be given a spelling test. Please remind your children to study, since having a larger vocabulary bank is one of the easiest ways for your child to improve their English.
    Aside of spelling, we will be working on reading, writing, and speaking everyday, not only in LA, but cross-curricular. Students have a reading log that they will complete daily, and a writing book that they will write in at least twice a week. As for reading, we will be focusing on short stories this term in our textbook "Language Arts: Going The Distance". This textbook offers a variety of literature to engage students in exploring peoples thoughts, feelings, and experiences about setting goals and achieving them. By learning about how others strive for their personal best, they will have opportunities to learn about themselves.
    March
    For the month of March we will be focusing on Poetry and learning how to write poems. Poetry has been very important for hundreds of years and it is important as English learners that we learn the importance. This month we will focus on learning the different aspects of poetry, history of poetry and eventually creating our own poetry for each type. We will be covering Acrostic, Ballade, Free Verse, Haiku's and Limericks.
    We will first learn what each of the poems are and how they are formed, we will than create one of our own.

    So far in HaCe this year we have covered:
    Staying Organized - This is important in the classroom as well as at home and when doing homework. Many students fail to succeed when they are unorganized. It is not that they can not complete the work it is because they forget the work or lose it. It is important for the students to understand that staying organized is part of being a top grade student.
    Time Management - we have discussed several techniques related to time management. Some important aspects are; 1. prioritizing, students need to realize that some things are more important than others. When a surprise comes our way like having to go to a doctors appointment, they need to realize that, that is more important than playing a video game. 2. Thinking ahead; many students wait until the last day to work on a project or study for a test. This has been shown to NOT work, cramming for tests is not a very effective way of learning the course material. 3. Sleep: sleep is very important for all students! Without energy at school students are unable to learn to their full potentials. When we are tired we are unable to process certain things and this in turn ruins our class time.
    Skill Transferring - Many of the things we do outside of school, whether it be sports, or any other active can relate to what we do in school. We looked at different skills and how they can help us at school and also in life.
    Philosophy for a happy life - As a class we watched a video about a boy with Progeria a rare disease and his philosophy for a happy life. Even with all the complications he had he was able to still have a positive outlook on life. After we watched this the students came up with philosophies they can follow to live a happy life.
    The next objective will be to create a brochure helping someone who may have been bullied or abused online. This is a topic that is becoming more and more seen and students need to be able to find ways to deal with it and report it if they are noticing it happening to their friends or to themselves.

    March
    For the month of March we will be focusing on visual arts. The students will be using perspective and point of view to create pieces of art that will be on display throughout the school. We will view various types of artwork that are given from different perspectives, than we will create our own.
    We will also be working on a skit/play. We will work together to find a skit or play that we like and we will act it out as a class. The students will practice various skills such as; memorization, movement across the stage, presence and acting skills.
