Ms. Ellison

April Showers Bring May Flowers, Welcome to May 2020!!

Hey Everybody, it's Ms. Ellison and I'm missing you guys like crazy!! Hi Chantel! Hi Jace! Hi Jillian! Hi Loesali! Hi Nathaniel! Hi Noah! Hi Olivia! Hi Saige! Hi Zachary!! I hope you guys are doing great at home, relaxing but still working on your homework! Remember: Exercise helps to grow our brains as well as our body and how do we exercise our brains? We read, write and do a lot of important thinking exercises! A little bit each day helps A LOT! 
Parents and Guardians, I hope that you are handling this extended period of closure as best as possible. What I am hoping that my kids especially focus on during this extended period of home learning, is reading and writing, which is reading the books that I have included in their learning packages and the little writing piece that I have sent home.
Writing: Once your child has completed that writing piece, please take a close-up photo (so I can read their awesome stories) and send it to me! You can send it directly to my messenger inbox OR you can send it to my email: melissa@esgenschool.ca!! Either way is perfect! I am excited to think that I'm going to get to read their stories when they have completed them! 
Reading: I have sent several books home with your child, PLEASE return the books once the children return to school. That is the only thing I am requesting to be returned at this time. 
Folder Assignments: Math: I have included Math sheets in their folders. Have them work on them a bit each day. There is no need to rush through any of the assignments, work at their own pace.
In the next few days, assign IXL Math and IXL Language Arts assignments for the next round of home learning to work at their own pace.
I will also send a hard copy of another writing piece with several different ideas! Again, once your child has completed that writing piece, please take a close-up photo of their completed story and send it to me! 
EPIC Books: In their EPIC account, I have assigned many different stories, mainly READ TO ME books, and some videos with songs and learning videos! Please feel free to have your child choose from these assigned books. NOT ALL need to be completed, but the more the better also because it helps strengthen their listening and reading skills! Work at their own pace, but I am hoping that each child will TRY to read for AT LEAST 20 minutes per day! This is really really beneficial for strengthening their reading stamina and skills, especially during these times of home learning where we can't be all together to read in our class! 
PLEASE stay safe, stay warm with all the little storms that roll through and most of all, stay calm and work slowly on!
Be Safe and you are all missed dearly, 
Ms. Ellison and Brittany!

Parents and Guardians!!
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!! We hope everyone had a wonderfully relaxing holiday, unfortunately, we're unable to be together to celebrate the first two weeks of 2022. Soon enough, we have our hopes up!
As you know, we are all on a 2 week home learning cycle again, so I have put together daily learning activities for our children so they will not miss out on too much in the absence of school.
Parents and Guardians, for Mrs. Schofield and Ms. Taylor, please refer to their Teacher pages so your children can receive their assignments.
I will have our children's assignments in their homework packages which will be distributed between the hours of 10 and 2 pm tomorrow, Tuesday, January 11, 2022.
Please note that this work is over a TWO-WEEK period and not expected to be completed in a day, or in one week. Please take the time to review with your child, their assignments and listen to them while they read their books. A child needs to be heard when reading to both learn to read and learn to enjoy a story, and strengthen listening and speaking skills! 
Thank you and stay tuned, 
Miss you all very much, 
Ms. Ellison & Brittany!

Dear Parents and Guardians! 
Be sure to check your children's backpacks today after school or at the soonest possible for important notices that were added, as well as their paintings from Wednesday's Take Me Outside Day! Please be sure to find your child's bag of reusable masks as well in their backpacks and please WASH them! This is very urgent to keep the spread of germs down.
Please find the most beautiful spot in your house to display this ORIGINAL masterpiece painting that your child had worked so patiently on! 
Thank you and have a lovely weekend!!
Ms. Ellison and Brittany!

On Wednesday, October 20th, Ms. Ellison's Primary class participated in #takemeoutsideday. We went to our Outdoor classroom and brought our painting supplies with us! Each child chose a spot to sit and a scene within their proximity and painted what they saw. Their paintings turned out...

Parents and Guardians, 
Please check your child's homework folders for all forms that need to be completed and returned tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 21. 
Students, PLEASE be sure to have an adult READ your book with you. Parents and Guardians, please ensure that you read the book that your child has brought home, with your child. These are books that are not at their reading level but are sent home to ensure Book Talk and discussing, as well as sharing ideas about the story that you have read to them. PLEASE do NOT make them read the story by themselves, as stated, these are not at their reading level and will cause frustration. These books are sent home for enjoyment to listen to, but the children may point out words or phrases that they recognize and they may "help read the story".
New spelling words for this week will be sent home in tomorrow's homework! 
**PLEASE RETURN HOMEWORK FOLDERS THE NEXT DAY**
Thank you, 
Ms. Ellison
Have a wonderful evening, you have a gift of sharing bonding time with the book and your child tonight!
