Where are we going?

September 20

Math:

Our team will continue to explore and diagnose the current needs of our students regarding place value (up to 10,000), and basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.

Along with this diagnosis our team will continue developing a growth mindset with students. We will work to create a culture where students can value our multiple ways of learning, they can take risks and see mistakes as part of our learning process.

Guiding questions at home:

Where do we "see" math? 

How do we learn math?

What are our beliefs about math?

What do we know about numbers?

Resources:

Youcubed has an excellent resource for parents to help change our students’ (and our own) attitudes towards math.

Social Studies and Science Inquiry: “Voices of the Land… What story does it tell?”

We are just preparing the terrain to embark on our studies in a year long inquiry where we will intertwine A sense of Land unit from Social Studies with Waste and Our World unit from Science. For this we have prepared two provocations: a visit to the Shepard Landfill, and a visit to the Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park.

In Social Studies students will start by exploring what Alberta means to them, the Alberta Natural Regions and at the same time gain a geographical vision of where the First Nations People lived and where the treaties were signed.

In Science the students will start understanding our world of decomposers, human consumption, and wastes produced through natural processes and human technology.

ELA:

We have started  “The City of Ember”, a novel by Jeanne DuPrau. We encourage parents to ask for an update at home on details of the story. 

Guiding questions: 

What did today's chapter make you think of?

Have you ever felt like the main character?

What do you think will happen in the next chapter?

How can you relate the book to what you are learning in science?

Google Books has some chapters available:

If you desire to practice spelling at home, here is a list of high frequency words that we will be reviewing at school:

Spanish:

We will be reviewing basic vocabulary for routines in the classroom. Revisiting communicative phrases to talk about ourselves (likes, dislikes, family etc.). We will put special emphasis in supporting our students with recognition and correction of commonly used phrases (ex. “A mi me gusta” instead of “yo me gusta”).
