Dear 8B Parents/Guardians and Students

Hello everyone. I hope everyone had time to enjoy the holiday season with family. I realize as a parent myself that this return to the school year is difficult for everyone.  I am asking if anyone has any questions or difficulties about their child signing on to our Microsoft Teams page (students have all done this at school) or with any other concerns to email me at gerrit.bosma@nbed.nb.ca

Link to the TEAMs page is on my Nelson Rural Teacher page which can be googled or can be found at: http://nelsonrural.nbed.nb.ca/teacher/mr-bosma

Starting this Tuesday Jan. 11 until Friday Jan. 21 we will have online virtual classes following their regular class schedule (attached on my Nelson Rural teacher page). While we will meet virtually on TEAMS for lessons for 20 to 30 minutes, the remainder of time will be spent on individual practice, assignments, and for questions. Also, students are reminded to read independently for 30-40 minutes a day (There will be a learning packet with reading skill work to pick up Monday).

This Monday Jan. 10 between 12pm and 4 pm parents/guardians and students can get books (including French, Math, Science and English Language Arts duotangs/binders and textbooks) and any other needed materials form their lockers. Someone will be at the school after these hours if needed. Also, for Mr. Bosma there will be a learning packet of papers to help them with lessons these next two weeks.

8B Students: Mr. Bosma is going to focus on ELA and resume Social Studies when we return to the classroom (hopefully on Jan. 24). If you miss an ELA virtual class you can sign on during the SS class to get explanation. You can also use the TEAMS chat to ask questions or Mr. Bosma’s email.

Reading Material Resources:

1)    Students can sign into their Sora accounts: https://soraapp.com/

2)    Students can use their New Brunswick Library cards to sign books out through overdrive    and download the Libby app. https://www.overdrive.com/apps/libby/

3)    Sign a book out on Monday from my classroom library

No live video meetings today. You can continue to read independently while working on your 10 vocabulary words in the chart, and using the words in sentences. This vocabulary is still due on Friday. Also, you can working on your latest Raider 8er writing piece. Have a good day.

Hello everyone. This is not an easy time trying to learn from home, and I truly hope we are back in the classroom soon. If you have not been able to get on Microsoft Teams through your Microsoft Office account, there is a link on the right hand side my teacher page. 

Also, please email me if you need help logging on or are having any difficulties. We are following our class schedule each school day with Teams video meetings. Until you can log on to Teams, please follow your 72 hour packet page you took home and that is linked on this teacher page below. 

I have also linked all the home learning explanations, links, and attachments we have been working on during Microsoft Teams classes this week for students to catch up (if they couldn't log on). All assignments and Quick Writes can be sent to Mr. Bosma through your email or through Teams. They will be assessed/marked. 

Take care, 

Mr. Bosma

Hello 8B, I am disappointed I didn't get to see you with your costumes and/or crazy hair today. Today you can simply follow your 72 hour packets from each teacher for a class worth (Math, LA, Science etc). If, and only if school is closed on Monday you can follow your regular class schedule and sign in through Microsoft Teams to hear instruction for class from each teacher. For example, you have Mr. Bosma for ELA second period at 9:40 so sign in to 8B Language Arts  Microsoft Office and go to Microsoft Teams. I know you have copies of my 72 hour plan, but I have attached a digital copy here too. Take care 8Bers. Have a safe and fun Halloween.
