October 5 - October 9

Language Arts

The students continued using the COPS editing strategy.  The were also assessed on their reading comprehension this week.  All classes also worked on a class banner representing their "house" as part of Chimera Time.  The three houses that were represented are Goat, Snake and Lion. 

Social Studies

Students were introduced to different types of landforms this week.  They learned 20 different types - mountains, hills, cliffs, swamps, peninsula, isthmus, etc...

September 28 - October 2

Language Arts

This week the students continued learning about the editing strategy - C.O.P.S. to improve their writing.  A variety of activities were designed for the students to practice these strategies. We will be using this strategy throughout the year.

C= Capitals

O= Organization

P= Punctuation

S= Spelling

In addition to learning about editing over the past few weeks this week we also focused a variety of activities about Terry Fox and Orange Shirt Day. 

Social Studies

The students continued to learn about Canada through our work about Terry Fox.  In addition to this work we also looked at maps and created a compass rose art piece.  Check out the Google Classroom for some of the examples later in the week.  Landforms will be our next focus in Social Studies.
