Welcome to Chelsey Bird's Home Page
Hi! Welcome to Grade 6! This will be a very exciting year filled with new opportunities and many changes as you enter middle school. It's going to be a lot of fun!! I am a grade 6 Language Arts and Social Studies teacher at the school. I also teach middle school photography and drama. If you are interested in drama, I also direct the Spring Musical which is open to all middle school students. Grade 6 also opens the door to joining sports teams like volleyball and basketball.
In grade 6, we also have a very exciting field trip to Camp Chief Hector in June. This outdoor school experience is one that many will remember for a lifetime. More information on the outdoor school trip will be announced in the coming months.
On the left hand side of this page, you will find different folders for the courses that I am teaching in grade 6. These folder will contain assignments, rubrics, study guides, homework and important information regarding dates and events at the school. I encourage parents and students to check this page frequently to stay on top of schoolwork and school activities.
If you wish to contact me please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-936-4579. I am looking forward to an exciting year!
Tips for parents:
1. Parents should encourage their children to review concepts on a regular basis regardless of upcoming assessments.
2. Parents should encourage their children to try and perform calculations without the use of a calculator as much as possible.
3. Parents should have their children show and explain recently covered work to them as part of a regular review of important concepts.
