May is finally here!
We have a fun packed May ahead of us, including our Aboriginal Presentation this Thursday, the Surrey Children's Festival, and our many units, including Dance, poetry, and career development!!
Last week, we started our unit on Aboriginal Communities. As part of this unit, the presentation this Thursday will be about the history of Aboriginal and European relations. With the help of our Aboriginal Support worker and presenter, the students will learn about disease brought to North America during Early Exploration, different laws created involving Indigenous rights, and what residential schools where. There was positive feedback about it last year, and I thought it would be a good exercise to incorporate into the unit. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me (link to my email is under the "Teacher/EAs" tab).
My door is always open, so feel free to drop by with any questions, or if you just want to say 'hi.' :)
