Hello Room 9 Families

It was wonderful to connect with so many families during conferences last week.  If you were not able to attend conferences, please contact me at to arrange an alternative time to discuss your child’s progress

A reminder that our class will be visiting the Calgary Police Interpretive centre on Thursday, November 30th.  We look forward to participating in this fantastic program.  Please ensure that students have a lunch packed that day as well as a water bottle.  

In ELAL, we have wrapped up our spooky stories, which many of you got to take a peek at during conferences.  We are now diving into exploring the winter solstice and creating poetry to share our thoughts and feelings about this time of the year.  We will look at traditions that surround this time of year through articles and stories.  

In Math, grade 5 students are working on rounding numbers using a number line.  They will have a unit test on their numeracy unit next Tuesday.  This will include patterns and graphing sequences.  

Grade 6 students are moving on to their multiplication unit this week.  They will review the standard algorithm for multiplying multi-digit numbers by two digit numbers, and move into practicing long division with larger numbers.  They will have a quiz on integers on Tuesday.  

In Social, grade 5 students are finishing up their regions of Canada projects and will be moving on to incorporating persuasive writing while picking the best region for themselves.

  • Thursday, November 30th - Wolfe and Caddel classes to Police Interpretive Center
