Team Teaching Grades 3 to 6

 

April 2015.

 

On January 12, 2015, the grade three, four, five and six teachers at Wagmatcookewey  School started team teaching.  Team teaching means that each teacher teaches one or two specific subjects to different classes.  The team teaching provides consistency and continuity for the students, as well as an exposure to different teaching techniques and styles.  The teacher also gets an overview of what skills are taught in each specific subject and what skills need to be improved, as the student progresses in school.  Each week the team teachers meet to share ideas and discuss the children’s progress, often discussing ways to help individual children.

 

Cathy Cooper has grade 3 homeroom and she teaches grade 3 to 6 Language Arts and levels H to M in Guided Reading.  James Young has grade 4 homeroom and he teaches, Grade 3 to 6 Science, Computer Tech and levels M to S in Guided Reading. Wayne Morris has grade 5 homeroom and he teaches Grades 3 to 6 Health, Social Studies and levels Y to Z in Guided Reading.  Fred Matthews has grade 6 homeroom and he teaches grades 3,4 and 6 Math, as well as levels S to W in Guided Reading.  Corinne Phillips teaches levels A to H in Guided Reading.  Ann Peck teaches grades 3 to 6 Art, Religion and Grade 6 Math resource.  Louise Simon teaches grades 3 to 6 Mi’kmaqLanguage and Culture.  Brent Nicholson teaches Grade 5 Math. Jamie White continues to teach grades 3 to 6 Physical Education.

 

Homework is assigned each night from Monday to Thursday in different subjects. A list of homework assigned each night is attached to the back of this note. Homework is expected to be completed and passed into the teacher the next day.  All homework is a repeat of work completed in class.Please make sure your child’s homework is completed each day, as homework is counted as part of the overall marks of the students.

 

The teachers feel positive about team teaching and how it is benefitting all the students involved.  If you have any questions or concerns or have any ideas and suggestions for team teaching, please feel to contact us at the school.

Confidence is having faith in someone.
 
Self-confidence is trusting that you have what it takes to handle whatever happens.
 
It is a feeling or belief that you can do something well or succeed at something. You feel sure of yourself and enjoy trying new things, without letting doubts or fears hold you back. When you have confidence in others, you rely on them
 
Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong."

Some ways to help build self confidence are:

Recognize your talents and good qualities and write them down. No matter how down you feel, try to pat yourself on the back a little and remember the things you excel at.

 

Think of the obstacles that stand in the way of your confidence. Take a piece of paper and write all the things that you think are keeping you from becoming confident, e.g., bad grades, introversion, not many friends, etc. Now ask yourself this: Is that valid or logical?

 For example: You didn't get good grades on your last math test, so as a result you're not confident when it comes to your next test. But ask yourself this: If you studied really hard, worked with the teacher, and prepared for the test, would you do better?! YES.

 

Remember that everyone struggles with confidence. Some people are good at hiding it, but nearly every person has struggled with his or her self-confidence at one point. You're not alone!

Take risks. Sometimes the only way out is through. In order to get good at life, you have to encounter experiences that force you to learn. You can't be awesome at it right off the bat. If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll never get better at...anything. You have to take chances to grow.

Failure is inevitable. It always happens. And it doesn't matter. The only part that matters is that you get back up. Everyone experiences set backs, but not everyone gets back up. It's the getting back up that builds confidence, and you've got to fail in the first place to do so.
