We are no longer taking books out from the library, so please remember to return all books this week! Thanks!

Reminder: Please remind your child not to bring toys (like Pokemon cards) to school, as they are not supposed to have them in the classroom, the lunchroom or at recess time. Thanks!

Math

We are reviewing our strategies to represent a number, such as with base ten blocks, tally marks, in expanded form (23= 20 +3), and with different eqautions, and on a hundreds chart. Some students have even been working on repeated groups, which is multiplication. We are doing problem solving in story problems, and students are reviewing addition and subtraction strategies, such as making ten or adding onto ten, and adding/subtracting double digit numbers by decomposing numbers into tens and ones.

Some questions you can ask me:

o   How could you solve the question 23 + 13? What strategy could you use?

o   How far apart are the highlighted numbers? How do you know?

English and Technology

We are creating our own research projects about a topic of choice with a partner. Students are creating a google slide and using their own research questions to help them find answers. They wil be presenting their five facts to teach us all something new about their topic.

Some questions you can ask me:

·      What is your research topic?

·      What are some research questions you can think of for the topic of “sharks”?

Social Studies

We have a special guest coming in next week to show us all about drumming in First Nations’ culture and some oral storytelling. We will be investigating drumming circles, and First Nations music and culture further to prepapre us.

Science

We are learning all about plants! We are learning about the different parts of plants (stems, roots, leaves, flowers, fruit and seed) and what each one does. Students have made a “tree friend” and are observing and drawing changes in that tree as the seasons change. We are doing some experiments with different parts of the plant, and have planted our own seeds to watch them grow. It is also important that students learn how plants help us and other animals, and why they are so important and special!

Spanish

We are working on building sentences using “quien/ who (noun)”, “que/what (verb)”, and adjective. Students are creating sentences and illustrating them to demonstrate they can write sentences in Spanish. We are also doing some whole class and independent/ small group reading comprehension in Spanish by reading simple sentences and answering questions about what we just read.
