Hello! We are Rhian and Ryan,
We teach the grade 6/7 split class at Frontenac Public School!
Our class at Frontenac is filled with high-energy kids who love to be active.
Throughout the past months that we have been teaching, we have incorporated fun activities into every lesson. These activities allow the students to engage in the material a creative way while also allowing us to gauge how much information the students retained. Their favorite games throughout the year have been drug bingo and jeopardy! Throughout the past months, we have covered a variety of health related topics. We started out by teaching the students about basic nutrition and health and have since moved into peer pressure, cyber bullying and healthy decision-making. In our last few weeks we are wrapping up our puberty unit and are planning on having a master jeopardy game of all the material we have covered so far for our last class with the students.
Although our time at Frontenac is coming to an end, we still have so much to look forward to. Next week we are taking our class as well as the 7/8 split class to The Boiler Room for some rock wall climbing fun! Everyone on QHO is so excited for this, and so are the students. It will be a great way to end a fantastic year with the students. Ryan and I have had such a rewarding experience at Frontenac. We feel like the students have learned a lot through our lessons and in return we have learned so much from them! It will be sad to say goodbye in a couple weeks, but we hope to visit again!
