I am Ms. Martinek and am teaching all 4 core subjects - math, science, language arts, and social studies in grade 8 this year. I am very excited; this will be a fun and exciting year at Fox Run School.
Our class will be working together in small groups, large groups, and independently to learn new concepts in all core subject areas. In grade 8 Social Studies, we will immerse ourselves into understanding the concept of worldview and how contact leads to change. Our math curriculum examines, number theory, fractions, decimals, integers, and word problems. Science will be an exciting subject investigating simple machines, solids, liquids, and gases, light and optics, and living cells. In Language Arts we will focus on developing literacy through a diverse range of strategies. We will read and discuss various novels, study poetry, explore research/writing and much, much, more….
I live west of Eckville on a farm with my husband, 3 sons, 3 dogs, and 3 cats! My oldest son is in grade 9 at H.J. Cody, my middle son is here at Fox Run (also in grade 8 this year!!), and my youngest son is attending Beacon Hill Elementary. I am sure I will have some stories to share with my class throughout the year about our adventures.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, skiing, hiking, camping, and exploring our wonderful Alberta mountains, and of course….teaching middle school students!
Have a great school year!
