This is the last week of Home Learning.  This is not how I thought the school year would end, but I just want to say I am so proud of all my boys and girls.  The progress you have made since September is all because of your hard work and great attitude towards school.  I also want to thank all my wonderful parents and guardians for all the support you have given me the past few month.  Your effort is much appreciated, and your children are so lucky to have you.

Have a fantastic summer and stay safe.  I will miss you all!! Make sure you stop in to see me in September!!

Hugs, Mrs. Lamkey

I hope you had a great weekend.  Thank you to all the wonderful parents for ensuring their children continue to learn during these trying times. Your effort is appreciated and does not go unnoticed. 

We are going to change up the home learning for the next few weeks.  Students can choose one activity a day from the Reading, Writing and Math choice board.  We will post new boards every 2 weeks. The choice boards are below (the same board is posted as a pdf and a word document). You might spend a couple days working on your writing choice.  Please continue to work on learning new sight words, Raz-Kids reading, and Splash learn math. If you have any questions, you can send me an email melanie.lamkey@nbed.nb.ca

Sight Words

Review your A - C Level sight words:

I, a, am, at, can, go, is, like, me, see, the,

to, dad, he, in, it, look, mom, my, on, up, we,

and, are, come, for, got, here, not, play, said, you.

all, away, back, big, her, over, this, want, who, with,

came, have, help, next, now, one, some, then, was, what.

again, because, could, does, every, laugh, many, new, night, very, walk, why.
