The students are delving into a Shakespearean experience by participating in a simpler version of some of Shakespeare's plays - a different play for each class. We hope to perform these as readers theatres sometime during the third week of May, perhaps outside on the soccer field, weather permitting.
The students are also working on an assignment of their choice from Shakespearean/ Elizabethan England. They can choose to write a report, build a model, write a poem, do a drawing or a virtual model of something from that era. It can be clothing, Shakespeare's plays, food, buildings, theatres, games, type of work or some other topic that the student may wish to do, with the teacher's permission. A copy of the outline is attached.
Have fun with it!
The students are working on a civics project that looks at information new immigrants would find helpful when they arrive in Canada. A representative from the Multicultural Association of Fredericton has presented to the class and the Honorable Matt DeCourcey will be visiting to talk about his job as Member of Parliament and secretary to the Minister of Immigration.
The assignment is to be at least 4 pages long, include pictures and graphics and a 1 page fridge sheet with contact names and numbers of frequently contacted departments in the government and other community supports.
The outline is attached. Information sheets from the MultiCultural Association are also attached.
The assignment is due April 23, 2019.

The interested students have received Scholastic book order forms for their perusal. The order will go in on Thursday, January 17.
The students have been looking at Greek, Roman and Norse Mythologies over the last few weeks. During this time they were told that they would eventually need to create their own myth and now that we have completed giving them overviews of these mythologies, the time to start their writing is here. There is a sheet attached that gives the students the due dates as well as some graphic organizers and information sheets to assist them with their writing.
The students need to complete a plan/outline by Friday, a rough draft by Tuesday and completed their final copy by next week Friday. Much of the work will be done in class but some may need to be done at home. Please have your child talk to you about their myth. This will help them do a better job of writing one.Creating Your Own Myth.docxStoryMapSettingCharactersBeginningMiddleEnd.pdf
