September 13 - 24
In Math, students have been learning about place value up to the millions. Students have completed various activities to learn how to identify each place value, how to represent it, and how to say it. Classes have also engaged in problem solving questions by using logical reasoning.
In Science, classes have been learning about Wetlands! Students have been busy identifying and categorizing different types of wetlands. The type of soil, water, animals, and vegitiation in each are the clues students use to help them decide. Next week, classes will be going to the Ralph Klein Park to receive hands-on learning with Wetlands!
The students will engage in a variety of learning activities in our mathematics classes, including large group math lessons, independent written work, and activity sheets in order to provide students with a balanced math program and inquiry activities to deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts. Emphasis will be placed on developing a conceptual understanding of essential mathematical strands, including Number Sense, Patterns and Relations, Statistics and Probability, and Shape and Space. Application of their understanding will also be applied to develop problem solving strategies. This year, students will focus on developing their basic fact fluency. We aim for students to fluently, flexibly, and efficiently solve basic addition facts to 20 and the corresponding subtraction facts as well as multiplication facts to 9x9. Students will be provided with a variety of opportunities to develop all of the above skills.
