A Request For Your Help

Happy New Year! Starting on January 4th, I will be having a student teacher in my classroom. Bryan Rancier is from Charles Sturt University, and he is completing one of his practice teaching placements at Ancaster Meadow School. My students met Mr. Rancier in Decemember, and they are very excited to have him return.

When I was in the Faculty of Education and completing my teaching placements, I always wanted to learn more about my students and find out what motivated them in school. I feel the same way now too. While I will be sharing some of this information with Mr. Rancier, I'm sure that he would love to hear some of this information directly from you too.

Here are some questions for you to think about:

1) What is your favourite subject (i.e., Language, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, Drama, Health, or Phys-Ed)? Why?

2) What classroom activity do you enjoy the most (e.g., literacy centres, using the SMART Board, tweeting, Show and Tell, agendas, etc.)? Why?

3) How do you feel about coming back to school tomorrow? What are you looking forward to the most? What are you looking forward to the least?

With your parents' permission, please post a comment here answering as many of these questions as you would like. Even if you are not in my class, feel free to comment here, as through various group activities, Mr. Rancier will be working with all of the Grade 1 students during his time at Ancaster Meadow School.

I can't wait to read what you have to say!

JD says she likes literacy centres and using the smartboard the most. She is excited to come back to school to see Ms. D and use the smartboard. School is fun!

Thanks JD! I like literacy centres and the SMART Board too, and I'm excited to get back into routine tomorrow as well. Can't wait to see you in the morning!

Love,

JM's favourite subject is Math. His favourite activity is the Friday Journal because he likes to draw in the entries. He is most looking forward to coming back to school to do the Friday Journal entries!

Thanks JM! I can't wait to read what you write in your Friday Journal this week. I love reading all of the Friday Journal Entries because they show just how much everyone's writing has grown since the beginning of the year.

Have a great evening! Can't wait to see you at school tomorrow!

Love,
Miss Dunsiger

Thanks for your comment, Jocelyn! I love Language time too, and I'm excited to use the SMART Board again tomorrow. It seems like it's been so long since we last used it. I'm sure that Mr. Rancier will love to see everything we can do on the SMART Board.

Hope you had a great holiday! I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Love,
Miss Dunsiger
