LA – We started a novel called, “The Whipping Boy.” Please ask your child to explain (which is really like having them do a summary!) what has happened so far.
MATH – We had an multiplication quiz today. The students will know their scores on Monday.
SCIENCE – We are partway through chapter 5. Start to review the vocabulary so far: circulatory system, heart, blood and pulse. Ask your child how the circulatory system works with the digestive and respiratory systems.
SOCIALS – Chapter two is progressing.
FRENCH – The quiz on the “school” booklet is Wednesday. The booklet is due before the quiz. Flashcards are a great way to study for a test.
PE – Participation, effort, fair play and leadership all contribute to the letter grade they will earn in PE.
ART – Candy art is now overdue. we are working on bookmarks.
We curl on Tuesday after lunch. We walk to the arena -rain or shine- so dress for the weather, please! Students need helmets so if they have their own please bring it. Otherwise we have helmets they can borrow. They also need clean shoes other than the ones they use to walk to the rink. Also, it is freezing in the rink so please dress warmly. You can take it off but you can’t put it on if you don’t have it.
Other curling dates are the 10th, 15th and 17th.
Scholastic Book orders for November due on the 28th.
