LA – Nothing new but a few students need to complete overdue work.
MATH – Money tests were handed back. Ask your child their score. If your child had a low score please have them see me at lunch or after school or practice counting up spare change at home. We began a fraction unit today. Ask your child what the numbers in a fraction are called and what they mean. E.g. 1/4
SCIENCE -Chapter 8 tests returned. Beginning chapter 9.
SOCIAL STUDIES – Working on maps of Canada.
FRENCH – Tests returned tomorrow.
A few housekeeping issues-
- I am taking a course at Douglas college and recently sent a permission form home concerning a research assignment I am trying out on our class. The information I collect will be anonymous. If you are okay with me using your kids to try out new games, please send in the form. If not, there is a “not interested” box to check off.
- I sent home a permission form for curling next week on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. (The form is actually not for the curling, it is for the bus ride home from the rink.) Students need to have a spare set of clean(ish) shoes to wear on the ice. We walk to the arena so they can’t curl in the shoes they wear to the rink as they will be dirty and scratch the ice. Their gym shoes are fine.
- Winter Activity Day Selection forms went home with activities for you to help your child choose from. The actual day is March 1st. This form is only to let us know how many students we will have in each activity. Any monies can be sent in later, with the actual permission form.
