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.

  1. What does your pulse tell you?
  2. Where does the blood from the right side of your heart go? What is this blood carrying?
  3. Where does the blood from the left side of your heart go? What is this blood carrying?
  4. 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!

a) Trixie is my four year-old cocker spaniel.

Next week is Parent-teacher interviews. Please call the office to book a time.

Thursday morning next week is our walking trip to the Fraser River for a watershed workshop. Thank you to Hope Mountain School for the awesome program! We go rain or shine so please dress for the weather. I have used a toque and mitts the last couple years!

Have a great Thanksgiving and a restful long weekend. See you Tuesday! Don’t forget to plank each day!

Our science chapter 4 test is on Tuesday. They should have all the notes (see Wed Oct. 2 for the full list). Can they explain the digestive process using terms like nutrients, esophagus, stomach and large intestine? The respiratory process using inhale, trachea, lungs and air sacs?

Some students have overdue science homework. They had a worksheet on the digestive system and three questions from page 95 in their text book.

In math we were talking about adding numbers by making 10. For example, 27 + 9 could be solved mentally by changing 9 to 10 (adding 1 to 9) then adding 27 +  10 = 37, and then subtracting 1 to get 36. (Page 36/37 in their books.) If they know all the ways that numbers add to 10 it would really help.

Parent-teacher meeting are happening October 16 & 17. Phone the office to set up an interview time that works for you.

Have a great weekend!

Cheers!

Hurray! We have our planners! We wrote in their science homework for tomorrow and the test for next week. The students are bringing them home today for a signature. If you could just put your initials on the bottom right of Wednesday, Oct. 2 they will earn a small prize tomorrow.P1050629

In the future if you signed once a week just to let me know you are seeing it that would be great.

We have pushed the science test back until Tuesday, Oct. 8. The students should be reviewing the chapter 4 notes in their binders. The more times they look them over, the better they will do on their test. The vocabulary list now includes: cells, tissues, organs, systems, digestion, nutrients, mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (and colon), oxygen, trachea, inhale, exhale, lungs, diaphragm, carbon dioxide (and water).

Can they explain how the diaphragm helps with breathing? Can they explain the difference between the esophagus and the trachea? Could they label the main parts of the digestion diagram on page 89?

Ask them to give you the other 3 facts of the fact family for: 7 + 6 = 13

SWIMMING is on Friday! We walk rain or shine. Please dress for the weather! 

Cheers!
