Information for the October Puzzle piece - "My Interests"
Good morning parents,
Your child will be bringing home the next puzzle piece in our Social Studies program. The October puzzle piece has the theme of “My Interests”. The directions for what information should be on this puzzle piece are at the bottom of this e-mail. As always, the directions are also available on my Teacher Page, under the “Projects” button.


Please take note that you should involve your child in talking about and writing down the information as much as they are capable of (with your assistance of course!). If you do all of the talking and writing, your child is less likely to be able to confidently share the information with the class when they bring it back to school. After you work together with them to complete the puzzle piece, help them to practice sharing it out loud. All of this will help them to achieve more success in their learning through this project. Please also make sure that the information is placed on the same side as their name and that you try to provide all of the information asked for. Please do not include other information that is not within the topic of this puzzle piece.


If you have any questions about completing the puzzle piece, please let me know. I want each child to be as successful as possible in their learning! Thank you for your partnership in helping your child progress in their skills and knowledge

Citizen of the Day
My Interests – October Parent Letter
Dear Parents,
Our next focus of the “Citizen of the Day” program will be “My Interests”. Please discuss with your child the following:
I like to read books about _____________ because _____________________
I like playing ______________ because _________________________
My favourite TV show is ______________ because ______________________
I would like to _______________ when I grow up because ________________
If your child has other interests they would like to share with the class please have them do so (they may be interested in collecting things or they may participate in a sport or club, etc.).
Please assist your child in recording their interests on the puzzle piece provided (the big piece of coloured paper shaped like a puzzle piece in the plastic bag) – they may draw pictures, glue on photos, write some words, etc. Your child will be asked to talk about their interests that they’ve recorded on this puzzle piece when it they return it to the class. Please return the piece before the end of the month, as they will receive another puzzle piece and project next month.
Thank you for your support of this program.
Mr. Miller
