September 28 - October 2
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.
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.
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.
