Our first full week complete! Here is a breakdown of what is happening in class.
LA – Ask your child the difference between a common noun and a proper noun. Ask them how to properly set up a page in class. (Date on the left, heading/title in the middle and underlined, name on the right.)
MATH – Adding with carrying (regrouping) Ask your child to show you they can add 2367 + 1724.
SCIENCE – Chapter 4 in the text on the digestive system. Students have definitions and are responsible for: cells, tissues, organs, systems, the digestive process (mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, colon, rectum) and nutrients.
SOCIAL STUDIES – Chapter 1 in the text. Vocabulary so far: diversity, ancestors, relief map, national anthem, native land, culture, cultural origin, heritage and census.
FRENCH – Next week we have a quiz on numbers up to 12 and colours. They have the notes.
PE – Looking for full participation, effort, fair play and leadership in all activities.
A few students have overdue books from last year. I will remind them on Monday.
A note on allergies: We also have a coconut allergy in class. Please be aware of the sending any food which could “shed” coconut.
Today we talked about leadership, leaders and what kinds of traits leaders possess. Things like perseverance, commitment, overcoming adversity, having a positive attitude and striving for excellence. All of the students have some of these qualities in varying degrees and are trying to improve in other areas. In their agendas the students wrote down a goal connected to one or more of those traits. They were to take it home and ask for your feedback or help with achieving their goal. If you could please sign their agenda to show me you saw it that would be great. They should also be able to tell you their score on today’s spelling test and math quiz.
Some of the immediate goals for the class are to use inside voices in the classroom, quietly transition between each subject and to listen carefully to instructions. Please ask your child how they think they are doing in these areas. Feel free to email me any time for more information.
Remember to plank each day for 30 seconds! Have a great weekend!
