Welcome to Taylor Grant's Home Page

Hi! Welcome to Grade 6! This is going to be an awesome year filled with new opportunities and many exciting new challenges to conquer as you navigate your way through Middle School. Trust me, it's going to be a lot of fun; you won't be disappointed.


I am a grade 6 Language Arts and Social Studies teacher at the school. I will also be teaching PE and Art. Going into Grade 6 also opens the door to joining sports teams like volleyball and basketball. Be sure to sign-up for tryouts if you are interested.

A little bit about me: I have a rambunctious dog that keeps me on my toes! I also love the outdoors, and when I'm not teaching, you can find me camping in the wild, hiking, and partaking in several outdoor sports. I am a lover of history and old priceless junk. Having an academic background in ancient history and archaeology, I am frequently getting my hands dirty on dig sites, hoping to find the next Parthenon or King Tut.

Below, you will find a variety of links and icons relating to the various subjects and apps used in our class. These links will take you to a Google Classroom for Social Studies, English Language Arts, Physical Education, and Art, which will contain assignments, rubrics and study guides. There is also a calendar button below, which will allow you to see homework due dates and test dates for 6G, as well as 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 to get the word on what we are doing in class; to check in on your child's progress, or simply to say hello, please email me at tagrant@rockyview.ab.ca. 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.
