Thanks to Doris from Healthy Mindspace for posting this on her Facebook page today! This is exactly right! We as teachers can help you learn the skills to succeed, but ultimately you have to participate and learn to use the skills on your own.
As you may know, I have not made plans this year to have any Creatures of Curiosity camps this year, however there are a variety of programs available this summer! Check out the links below
Three Different Camps from Baker Creek Enhancement Society! I posted about one of them HERE
Mindfulness Program from The Centre for Healthy Mindspace! I posted about it HERE
A Summer Drop in Program for Youth through the Rec Centre! Depending on your child's age, they may want to join some of the adult programs
Of course, the Rec Centre also has the Imagination Park Programs going. Check out page 19 of the Reg Guide here.
There may be some more summer programs for kids out there, so please let me know and I can add them to the list!! Enjoy your summer!
Just to keep you updated, I have not planned any Creatures of Curiosity programs for this summer due to the number of students who are staying on with me for summer tutoring.
However, I do have the Regency Care-A-Van still booked for Wednesdays in August. So, I may still be able to plan a few last minute camps for August! I promise to keep you all updated!
I'm so happy and proud of all the graduates this year! Waaaaaay back in grade 10, a few of these girls were my "Math Girls" as we struggled through the course together. The others I met as I would hear them come giggling and chatting down the hallway to drop their friends off. I just love this group (and everyone else who I didn't get in this picture).
I will miss them, but I know that they're on to accomplish many wonderful things! Congratulations Ladies!
Another Summer program to check out by Doris Hocevar of The Centre for Healthy Mindspace
Click on the image above for more information. Here is the information from her Facebook Page!
The Centre for Healthy Mindspace is offering a 4 session summer program for youth, beginning July 8th at 10:00 am.
Many students may be struggling to study for provincial exams due to the current BCTF Teacher's strike/Job Action. However, did you know there was an online source to help you?
LearnNowBC is open up until the 23rd with more options to help you prep for your exams! They offer Free live tutoring, as well as videos and quizzes! Whichever way you find best to learn!
You do need to sign up, but its completely free. If you don't want to bother and just want to check it out, send me a message and I'll let you borrow our username and password!
Thanks to Marie Forleo for this one. Yes, ultimately it all comes down to this. I can try to help my students as much as possible, but if they aren't willing to work, tutoring won't be as effective as it could be!
I've heard lots of great things about this camp! Please contact the Nature Education Centre for more info! (info on poster) Also, check out their Facebook Page
Once in a while, I get a question from an adult student who is lost in the world of 'upgrading'.... Sometimes all I need to do is point them in the right direction, show some resources, online video lessons and give them the basic tools to help themselves and off they go!!
Today, after a quick visit, someone left knowing the course really was do-able, and I left feeling warm and fuzzy, glad that I could share my knowledge.
Give me a call or email if you're in the same situation!
Can you pronounce this whole poem? I know I made a few little mistakes, such as corps, paling, aver and Islington and I thought I got these wrong (clangour, sward, foeffer, paling), but Googled them and found I pronounced them right! Certainly made me laugh!
Thanks to this page!
