Today was a fun-filled day of learning as usual. The students walked into the classroom and used their self-regulation strategies to start the day off right! Way to go everyone! Later, the students learned about 'C.R.A.A.P.'! More specifically, they learned about the C.R.A.A.P. test to check to see if their sources of information are reliable. Parents, click here to review the handout. Here is a video for you to review with your parents. Explain to your parents what each letter stands for and a few things you should be looking for when looking to see if your source are reliable or not. Later in the afternoon, our teacher librarian, Mrs. Altman, taught the students how to use a legend to organize their inquiry research notebooks.
IMPORTANT: Some students have not yet paid for their Gr.7 Hoodies. Please pay ASAP!
