Mrs. Cooper

Week of November 16-20

By far, the highlight of our week was the arrival of our new books for our classroom library courtesy of School Council. Students were bouncing up and down, squealing and literally holding onto their chairs as Mrs. Cooper unpacked the new arrivals. Mrs. Cooper heard: "There's so many I want them all!", "I can't wait to read Wings of Fire.", "It's like Christmas!" and "This book is really good - I want to read another one!".  We love to read in Room 13 and having new books to enjoy is so fantastic.


We continued to improve our writing this week, focusing on the use of transition words, making compound sentences and writing lots of detail. Mrs. Cooper showed the class some examples of grade level writing so we all know what we are working towards.  Each student has different things that we are working on in our own writing, but we are all working towards writing endurance which means writing more but also with quality.  If you would like to see a sample of grade level writing, please email Mrs. Cooper at tlcooper@cbe.ab.ca.

In math we continued to expand our understanding of multiplication by drawing arrays and looking for all the different "factors of a given product". We learned that factors are the two numbers you multiply together and the product is the total or answer of a multiplication statement.  In socially distanced groups, we brainstormed what division meant to us as we began looking at "I can represent division in more than one way."

As we explore the ideas of opinions and backing our opinions with reasons and examples, we have been using the current event issue around Alberta Parks.  After doing some reading and viewing, we each gave our opinions as well as reasons to answer the question "Should the Alberta government close parks and protected areas?" Ask your student their opinion and reasoning.  



Due to technical difficulties, Mrs. Cooper’s post from last week didn’t publish.  See below for a modified post for the week of November 9-13.

Week of November 9-13

We spent a lot of time this week viewing, listening, reflecting and remembering those who have made sacrifices for each and every one of us.  After listening to and viewing stories we shared what we saw, felt and what it made us think about.  

We would like to thank Mr. Radu, Ms. McKay and all the teachers that worked to make our virtual Remembrance Day assembly so special.  Our class enjoyed seeing the other classes share their reflections. We would like to send an extra special thank you to Master Corporal (Retired) Fred Litchfield for his message about family, friends and actions of peace.  The story about Master Corporal Mark Isfield and the "Issy Dolls" he gave to children gave us a lot to think about. We discussed and wrote about how each of us can contribute to peace and kindness at EMJ.

This week we also brainstormed about multiplication, began working on speed and accuracy of our multiplication facts.  Each of us are working towards "I can recall multiplication facts to 7x7", beginning with the patterns in the 2 and 4 times tables.  It is important for each of us to continue to work on these at home. Mrs. Cooper has put links in Google Classroom for digital flashcards.  If you don't know how to access Google Classroom from home, please email Mrs. Cooper at tlcooper@cbe.ab.ca.

Bouncing Light off a Mirror
Light in a straight line


This week we began our second Science Unit: Light and Shadows. After discussing light safety and sources of light, we began exploring the way that light moves.  We found out that light travels in a straight line. To get light to change directions, we need to have it interact with something like a mirror.  We found a dark space by the elevators and bounced light off of five mirrors and then onto a black piece of paper.

In Math we worked on mental math and some speed work with addition facts.  Mrs. Cooper has put a few links in Google Classroom so we can also practice our number facts at home. By being able to add and subtract numbers quickly in our head, we can then work with numbers more easily when we are adding and subtracting numbers to 10 000.  We also explored "I can show the meaning of subtraction in different ways" by making a group poster. We discovered that subtraction is "messy" when we try to show what it means.  

Addition Speed Facts

We shifted our writing focus this week to opinion writing. It is great to each have our own opinion, but when you are trying to persuade someone, or communicate your opinion, it is important to have good reasons and be able to explain your reasons with examples. As a class, we wrote a paragraph about Christmas being the best holiday and Mrs. Cooper wrote a paragraph about the best sport. In groups we highlighted the reasons in one colour and the explanations or examples in another colour. (We also looked for words with long a sounds because this was our word work focus for the week.) Finally, we each wrote a convincing opinion paragraph about the best pet to have, or if it is better to not have a pet.  We will continue to explore opinion writing a next week.

Week of October 26-29

Princesses, Mandelorians, Peacocks, Garbage, Dinosaurs and more! What great costumes in Room 13!

In French we continued to explore “I can recognize and say Halloween words in French”. After reviewing our Halloween vocabulary, we listened to the famous song C’est L’halloween by Matt Maxwell and looked for all the words that we could recognize. We then used all the French Halloween words we knew in a game of Halloween Bingo.

It was a big week in Social Studies, wrapping up "I can identify key features of Alberta Regions" and "I can appreciate the diversity of Alberta's landforms, wildlife, vegetation and climate." We published our "Most Important Alberta Book" by finishing the editing of our writing, completing a good copy and illustrating our work.  We now have three complete books and although the information is all a little different, this is because we each appreciate different things about the regions of Alberta.  Finally, we wrapped up this section with a class game of Jeopardy. We used our whiteboards to answer questions as a team to show our understanding.

Jeopardy Game - Showing our understanding


Addition and subtraction of four digit numbers as well as mental math continued to be the focus for the week. Each of us are working towards "I can use a variety of strategies to add and subtract four digit numbers" as well as "I can solve problems using addition and subtraction".  We practiced our skills in a game Mrs. Cooper created on SMART Learning Suite Online.  In our math talk, we looked at "Number Imposters" and explained the reasons why we thought a number was the imposter.

In gym we applied our skipping skills with the long ropes. We learned that not only do you need to have good jumping skills, but the rope turning is an important job that takes a lot of coordination and team work. We practiced different types of jumping inside the long ropes and even tried a few tricks.

Recess snow art

The snow really came this week, but Room 13 was ready and it didn't slow us down. We had fun at recess playing winter games and creating snow art. Thanks to everyone who bundled up for the weather and brought inside shoes.



In math we talked about addition and what it means to add. We decided it was hard to put into words, but the students in Room 13 came up with things like "two numbers turn into another number" and "if you have 2 plus 2 and you smush them together you have 4". When looking at the I can statement "I can add numbers up to 10 000 using a variety of different strategies" we learned that there are many ways to do addition. We also spent a lot of time talking about mental math strategies like "doubles plus one" or "doubles plus two" and "bridging to 10". We then applied some of those mental math strategies in our math talks doing MashUps.

Math MashUp
Addition Strategies

In literacy and Science we read an article in small (socially distanced) groups on a Calgary boy who found a dinosaur

Getting the main ideas from an article

fossil while hiking in Horseshoe Canyon.  Together we talked about the main idea of the article, some facts that were in the article and also some vocabulary.  Since we learned earlier in the week how to craft a paragraph, we then each wrote a paragraph about the article with a focus on "I can relay the main ideas from something that I have read" and "I can write a paragraph with a topic sentence, three supporting details and a concluding sentence".


We also finished our class novel "Wishtree". Some of us really loved the book, some of us liked it and some of us didn't really like it at all. We discussed how everyone can have their own opinions, but you need to give reasons for your opinion.  

Wishtree Review

A few other highlights from the week: in gym we started our skipping unit and in Social Studies we continued to discuss the key features of the regions in Alberta and worked on our Important Alberta Book. In art we looked at Jennifer Anne Burke and her paintings of Alberta Badlands and Hoodoos for inspiration before we tried our own Badland and Hoodoo drawings.

Sharing what we learned

This week we finished up our Social Studies group research on Alberta regions in our group google doc. We then shared what we learned with the entire class and Mrs. Cooper summarized all the information in to one chart.  She then read us The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown.  We discussed the imagery and also the patterns in the book, and then started looking at our research about Alberta Regions. We discussed in groups what the most important thing about each region is.  Next week, we will begin creating our own book: The Important Book of Alberta Regions.



Next week is Waste Reduction Week. To do our part and to begin applying what we have been discussing in Science, we started making posters with public service announcements that we will display in the school next week.  We also examined a product that we use that uses some sort of package and each created a slide presentation about where that package comes from, its raw materials and how best to dispose of it.  We are also getting really good at accessing assignments in Google Classroom and submitting them virtually to Mrs. Cooper

Story of a product - packaging tracking
Waste Reduction Brainstorming


In math, we continued to compare and order numbers looking specifically at "I can use a number line to round to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand" and "I can use rounding and friendly numbers to help with estimation".  Mrs. Cooper learned some new ways to use SMART Learning Suite, and created a rounding game for us to do on the Chromebooks.

It was another busy and quick week for us in Room 13! 

In math we continued to focus on the learning intention “I can compare and order numbers up to 10 000 in a variety of

Comparing Numbers Explanation

ways”.  We broke down what the words “comparing” and “ordering” mean and the different ways that we can compare and order numbers.  We also worked on describing how we would explain to someone else how to order and compare numbers using terms like “digit” and “place value”. We then spent some time brainstorming what we remember about number lines and how we can use number lines to order and compare numbers.  We enjoyed making number line puzzles for each other and then took a gallery walk to solve the number line puzzles that we made.

What does comparing and ordering mean?


In our writing, we talked about descriptive words and how using the right words can help to create pictures in our minds.

Descriptive Writing

After Mrs. Cooper read a few chapters from “Wishtree”, we drew a picture of what we saw in our minds and talked about all of the ways the author added description. Later in the week, we used another read aloud “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” to think about an event that happened to us.  Using descriptive and strong words, we wrote about the event so that others could see it in their minds.  Some of the word choices our class used were descriptions like “a lightly dusted piece of paper”, “it was sticky and gooey” and “a huge bruise shimmered”. We then reviewed the success criteria and talked about how to improve our descriptions before beginning a good copy on the Chromebooks.

Writing Self Assessment

In Social Studies we examined the 6 Regions of Alberta more closely, by doing some research about the wildlife, landforms, vegetation, bodies of water, and climate in each region. We used the Chromebooks to capture main ideas about each region in a shared google document.  Next week we will share what we learned and consolidate the information into a group piece of writing.

Jot notes about Alberta Regions

Finally, as we prepare for inclement weather that is sure to come up at some point this winter, we are gradually moving our daily meeting spot closer to the school.  We are now meeting in the soccer field that is just behind the back compound.  We will also be dismissing from here, so feel free to adjust your drop off and pick up spots. If you have questions, feel free to email Mrs. Cooper at tlcooper@cbe.ab.ca .

Week of September 28-October 2

Room 13 brainstormed many things on Friday that they wanted to share about our week. They were very excited about all the things that we did and wished we could share them all!

A big highlight was finishing our Alberta landscape pictures in Art on Friday.  The students learned and applied many

Our Alberta Landscapes

techniques in their representations of Alberta.  They used terms like Rocky Mountains, rivers, lakes, wild life, and forests in their descriptions of their paintings.  These are all terms we are learning about in Social Studies as we explore the learning intention "I can identify major regions, landforms and bodies of water in Alberta."  In social studies, we also began to look at our inquiry question "How are we connected as Albertans?"  We discussed how one way we are connected is through the places we have been or seen and what the landscapes of Alberta make us think of.



What do you think of when you think of "land" and "home" in Alberta?
Our personal connections to Alberta


Rm 13 mind map about Residential Schools


On Orange Shirt Day, we also explored how we are connected as Albertans to what has happened in the past.  After brainstorming what we remembered about Residential Schools, we read the story When We Were Alone by David Robertson. Parts of the story were sad, but we also discussed how the story made us happy because we can now talk about the past and learn from it and also honour the Residential School Survivors.  We created a web about the ideas we had about Residential Schools.



Residential School Mind Mapping



With our writing this week, we focused on the learning intention "I can include proper punctuation and capital letters in my writing."  We drafted an email to Mr. Radu and Mrs. McKay which we edited for periods and capital letters. When Mrs. McKay wrote back, she gave us a puzzle to solve because her reply had no vowels.  It was fun to decode her message and write one back.

Decoding a message without vowels


In math we continued with our daily Math Talks and the learning intention "I can order and compare numbers to 10 000".  Room 13 loves the game "beat the teacher" because you need to try to get a number greater than Mrs. Cooper's.  Because our class is getting very good at this game, we talked about the best strategy. Mrs. Cooper also added bonus points to the game if you could guess her number.  For example, the numbers were 4, 2, 6, 4.  The hint she gave was that only one number was greater than hers.  Do you know what her number was?

Week of September 21-24

This week we focused on a few special events and used those to have some great conversations and develop our skills. 

Tuesday was the anniversary of the signing of Treaty Seven.  To understand what this meant to us as Albertans, we looked at an article about Treaties. Using our annotation skills, we captured our thoughts, questions and ideas as we read.  We then used those annotations to develop questions we had as a class. Finally we used the article to answer as many of those questions as we could and make some jot notes about Treaties in Canada and in Alberta.

Article Annotations
Making connections








Generating our questions





We also celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope by learning a little more about who Terry Fox was and what he did. We saw that the word "try" is in Terry's name and then brainstormed adjectives to describe Terry Fox.  We came up with words like "inspiring", "determined", "focused", "hard working", "special" and "dedicated".  We then thought of ways that we can #tryliketerry by setting our own personal goal and thinking of an adjective that would describe how we need to be to achieve our goal.  We will think of Terry and his "perseverance" when we find our goals hard.  Finally we had our Terry Fox Run on Wednesday and each did our best to #tryliketerry during our run.

Our Terry Fox Run of 2020
#tryliketerry


In our class novel we came to a part in the plot where Red, the main character, was developing a plan to grant a wish.  We stopped and came up with our own predictions for what Red's plan might be. We worked with partners (at a distance) to come up with specific details about the plan, focusing on who, what, when and how.  The class came up with some very creative and detailed ideas about how the plan might unfold. Next week will will do a final edit on our ideas to ensure we have good sentences with proper capital letters and punctuation.

Week of September 14-18

This week was another busy and exciting one in Room 13. We have really settled into our routines.  The grade fours demonstrated “I can use personal strategies to perform mental math and solve problems” in our daily math talks.  We did three Subitizing Challenges by Steve Wyborney where we needed to show how we would group the dots to get the total amount.  We also saw that the way we approach a simple problem using mental math can be done in so many different ways. We are also working towards "I can represent numbers up to 10 000 in a variety of ways".  To do this, the grade fours have used ten frames, base ten blocks, drawings and other symbols to combine and break apart groups of tens, hundreds and thousands to show the same number.

Subitizing Challenge
How do you see how 8 + 13 comes together?

 









Our class novel “Wishtree” and the learning intention “I can understand new ideas and information by responding personally and discussing ideas with others” led us to a great discussion about kindness, compassion and issues in our world like racism.  We used a NewsELA article about “The Little Mermaid” casting a black actress for their new live movie to explore this topic further.  To increase our understanding of the article, Mrs. Cooper explained the technique of annotation – where you add notes to a text or diagram to show what you are thinking, wondering or noticing.  We will be using annotation lots this year as it is a great strategy to help get the main ideas from what we read.

A sample of our first annotation


In Science we continued with our exploration about waste in our World, in particular “I can identify biodegradable waste” and “I can describe how nutrients are recycled in nature". After Mrs. Cooper took pictures of waste from our lunches and snacks and put them on the SMART board, we used our personal white boards to say if we thought the waste was biodegradable.  We then made our own diagrams of how nature handles biodegradable natural waste.

To work towards “I can appreciate the diversity of Alberta because of its geography, climate, geology and paleontology”, we explored Zooming In… Alberta’s Regions on Chromebooks. Next week we will continue to discuss research strategies and use or annotation skills to begin a collaborative Google Slide on one Alberta Region.

Grade 4 Week of September 1-4 and 8-11, 2020

Hello Grade Four Families,

It has been an exciting first few weeks in Room 13! We have settled into our new routines nicely, with a big focus on

Room 13 Compassionate Crossword

Health and keeping ourselves and others safe.  We used the learning intention “I can make responsible and informed choices to stay healthy and to promote safety for myself and others” and our school logo (EMJ is Creative, Compassionate, Inclusive) to talk about what being compassionate looks like in our classroom. We created a mind map together and the students decided they wanted to represent our ideas in a crossword style visual. 

 

Art inspired by Alex Javier


In Art on Friday we looked at artwork by Alberta Indigenous Artist Alex Janiver. We loved the “colourful and crazy” patterns and “random colour”.  We used the artwork we viewed as inspiration for our class “COMPASSIONATE” Crossword.  We are excited to see it come together next week.




We spent a lot of time in math looking at numbers and patterns and doing our daily Math Talks.  Some of our Math Talks looked at ways we can represent numbers, or see patterns in numbers. The grade fours are very good at “Which does not belong”.  Which of these numbers do you think doesn’t belong: 9, 16, 25, 43? Our group came up with at least 11 different answers and reasons for this one number set.

Representing numbers in various ways

To help follow our daily schedule, we also looked at the patterns on a clock and focused on the learning intention “I can tell time on an analogue clock to the nearest five minutes”.  Some grade fours can even tell time to the nearest minute now.

 

To keep each other safe and healthy, we have modified some of our favorite games in gym and at recess.  Ask your Grade Four Student how to play “Shadow Capture the Flag” or if they were part of the creative group who invented “Anything But Lines are Lava”. We even invented our own social distance game “Escape the Fortress” together on Thursday.

 

Escape the Fortress
Shadow Capture the Flag


In Science we began our Unit Waste in Our World by brainstorming all that we know about waste. We focused on the learning intention “I can identify wastes that result from human activity” before examining the ways that wastes are produced and recycled into other nutrients in the natural environment. We viewed a video on decomposers and we began a group poster about decomposition.

Waste in our World brainstorming and learning

We also began looking at where we live, and then specifically at Alberta and its geography.  We started our class novel “Wishtree” by Katherine Applegate, spent time writing inside and outside, and also had great discussions about Red, Bongo and Samar, the main characters so far in our book.  Although everyone was excited to be back in class, the students loved using the Chromebooks this week.  We spent some time getting more familiar with our Google Classroom and reflecting on the online learning that was done last year. Finally we started looking at how to do research about Alberta and submit our work via Google Classroom.

It was a very busy and exciting first two weeks.  We are looking forward to more great learning ahead!

A few reminders and important dates:

  • Grade four students need to bring in a small, clean plastic food container with a lid for music sometime in the next two weeks.
