- continued research on provinces and territories. Their presentations start Monday and if they are not complete, they could be working on them over the weekend. That said, sufficient time was provided in class this week. Also, students did a creative writing exercise through a prompt.
Two check-ins were taken this week (place value) and results will be posted on FreshGrade. If you haven't had the chance to log in with your parent account, please do so as we have been using the platform to submit and evaluate students' work. Parent invites to student accounts were sent out via email weeks ago. Check your junk mail folder just in case.
