Math and Science

January 10th-15th

Math

Slide, Rotate, Flip! Those are a key key words to describe a type of transformation a shape may make. Students have been learning about Transformations this week by being able to identify, describe, and draw specific types. 

Science

Another amazing presentation was given to the Grade 5's by David Spence. Students learned about different types of Alberta weather, how meteorologists gather data and make forecasts, and how to stay safe! 


December 14th- December 18th

Math

All classes are officially done the Patterns unit. Check out Powerschool for grades and comments.

Science

We had a very cool presentation this week with The Weather Networks Kyle Brittain! Kyle discussed extreme weather, his personal experiences, and more! Classes also looked at temperature and factors that can influence warm and cool areas inside and outside. 


December 7th- December 11th

Math

Some students had a Patterns unit test this week and the others will wrap up their unit early next week. Check out google classroom's to find practice pages to work on! Most classes also looked at double bar graphs in relation to collecting and analyzing first hand data. 


Science

This week, some students looked at weather vanes to show wind direction, completed temperature labs to show the movement of warm versus cold air, or discussed extreme weather.


November 30th- December 4th

Math

Students have looked at and practiced pattern attributes and number patterns with a rule. Students should be able to identify the core and terms in pictorial patterns and describe the rule of a number pattern.

Science

Continuing on with our weather unit, students learned about double bar graphs in relation to the weather in November. Some students have also been participating in demonstrations/labs to show air and weather. Ask your student what they have learned so far!


November 23rd-27th

Math

All classes have finished the Decimal unit. Please check powerschool or ask your student about it. Our next unit is: Patterns! Students have completed a pre-assessment to see what they already know about Patterns and will also see what they will need to know by the end of the unit.

Science

Classes finished their Climate vs. Weather trading cards. Ask them about the Power Moves and Weakness's of their character! Students also received their Weather Journals. This will be an on-going assignment as students learn to track the weather through out the month. 


November 16th-20th

Math

Students learned and reviewed comparing, ordering and rounding decimals. Some classes completed their Decimal unit tests, while a few classes will complete it next week.

Science

Classes were introduced to our new unit: Weather. Students began learning about climate and weather and should be able to describe the differences between the two terms. 


November 9th-13th

Math

Students completed their "Price of Life" booklets this week. Some classes also began comparing, ordering, and rounding decimals, which will be continued next week.

Science

Some classes were introduced to the new topic: Weather! Students were asked to brainstorm everything they know about Weather already, by using words, pictures, or sentences. Students were encouraged to be aware of the weather as we will begin a weather tracking activity. 


November 2nd-6th


Math

Students are continuing to practice showing and using decimals in a variety of ways. This week, students practiced adding and subtracting whole numbers with decimal points. "The Price of Life" booklet was also introduced, which asks students to use their knowledge of adding and subtracting decimals for real life situations such as buying a house, transportation, and more.

Science

The Wetlands unit wrapped up this week with students completing a Wetland unit test. Please check if your student needs the test signed and returned to their homeroom teacher. Next unit....Weather!


October 12 - 23

Math

Students have been introduced to decimals over the past few days and learning how they connect to our number system.


Science

Student took a closer look at animal adaptations and are using this information to add animals to their Imagination Island project.


October 5 - October 9

Math

Students continue working on place values to one million.  A variety of tasks have been created to allow children to practice working with larger whole numbers such as ordering, rounding and writing/reading numbers to one million.


Science

Students continue learning about Wetlands, Food Webs, Life Cycles and Adaptations of animals that live there.


September 28 - October 2

Math

Students have been working on place values to one million.  A variety of tasks have been created to allow children to practice working with larger whole numbers such as ordering, rounding and writing/reading numbers to one million.

Science

Students continue learning about Wetland ecosystems.  Students have been on an ecosystem scavenger hunt and learned about Food Chains and Food webs. 


Math Information

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.
