LA – We just began our class novel, The Whipping Boy. The students are learning how to write chapter summary sentences. The language is very colloquial, for example, there are words like; obliged, contrary and breeches.
MATH – We had a re-quiz on addition, subtraction and expanded form. Ask your child for their score out of 12. I am available most days at lunch and after school if your child would like some extra help. Our next topic is rounding. Can your child round 3482 to the nearest tens, hundreds and thousands?
SCIENCE – We are into chapter 5 all about the circulatory system. Vocabulary includes, heart, blood, blood vessels, arteries, veins, capillaries, pulse and contract. A few students had homework; page 105 Check Your Understanding.
- What does your pulse tell you?
- Where does the blood from the right side of your heart go? What is this blood carrying?
- Where does the blood from the left side of your heart go? What is this blood carrying?
- How are arteries and veins the same? How are they different?
SOCIAL STUDIES – We began chapter 2 in the textbook. Vocab so far: Founding peoples, Canada’s 3 founding peoples, creation story and Bering Strait Land/Ice Bridge.
FRENCH – We began a new booklet on Halloween terms.
ART – Halloween foil art is the new project. Check the bulletin board later next week!
Fit Kids is next Tuesday! Remember your gym strip or running shoes at the very least. Fit Kids should be there before 8:30 to help set up a station.
Wednesday is our rescheduled Fraser River Watershed Workshop. We will walk to the Fraser River rain or shine. Dress for the weather. I always bring a toque and mitts.
Have a great weekend! Cheers!
