LA – In poetry we have written haiku, limericks and recently added acrostic poems.
MATH – Beginning a unit on long division. We have been learning about the “fact family” and we are trying to get the students to understand the importance of learning their timetables. Any division question can be checked with multiplication. For example, 40 ÷ 8 = ? can be solved by knowing that 5 x 8 = 40. When we begin long dividing it will be so much easier if the students know their timetables. There really aren’t any tricks, it is just takes time and memorization.
SCIENCE – We began chapter 8 in the text, all about natural resources.
SOCIAL STUDIES – We began chapter 3 in the text, all about immigration to Canada.
FRENCH – TEST on the Winter Unit is Wednesday!
January student of the month theme is determination. Ask your child to tell you about the “Yes, I Can,” video we watched. Talk about determination!!!
MONDAY afternoon we go skating! If students have their own skates and helmets, please bring them. If not, there will be skates and helmets for the kids to borrow. Also, we walk to the arena so dress for the weather! We are able to catch the bus back.
Have a great rest of your weekend! Cheers!
