Welcome To Our Page


Posted: May 6, 2020


From here on, I will only be posting work on Microsoft Teams. If you cannot access Teams, email me at and I will send you the assignments directly. Thank you! 



This week's assignment will have you do a few different activities for you to do, but I've put them all in one place. The most important thing to note is that YOU DON'T NEED TO DO THESE ACTIVITIES EVERY DAY. You can do a couple of journal entries, perhaps a reading response and maybe find a photo or two that you can discuss with a family member. However, if you wish to do a journal entry, reading response etc each day, that is totally up to you.


Remember the motto - "just do what you can, when you can".


I've attached your tasks in a PDF file. I invite you to submit your work if you would like some feedback.

Hey there everyone,

Hope you are all doing well! For this coming week, you can focus on working on the assignments that were posted last week if you didn't get a chance to work on them. For those of you who may be ready to move on, I've attached a freewrite activity you can work on along with the Weekly STEAM Challenge. You can find the link for the STEAM Challenge here:

Scroll down to 6-8 activities. Freewrite is attached below. I invite you to send any work, pictures or questions to me at
