We curl on Tuesday!!!

If any student has their own helmet they should bring it. I’m sure it would fit better! If not, we have helmets here.

Dress warmly! Sometimes kids forget that the ice is frozen and it gets cold in there! Please bring an extra pair of shoes! We have a few extra pairs but again, your shoes would fit better.  Also, dress for the weather as we walk to the rink but we do catch the bus back.

Check out our awesome door! The kids have done a great job! I was very proud of all their hard work and contributions to our door. Will let you know the winners tomorrow!

Weekly Review

We have a math test next week on addition and subtraction. Ask your child to properly set up 3 457 + 5 387 as well as $38.76 – $9.89. make sure they line up the decimal! Ask them what some of the key words are in a math problem that lets them know whether to add or subtract.

We finished this week with swimming and a presentation by Natasha Davidson from Douglas College on math and origami. The kids are in various stages of constructing their own 3-d spheroids. We can hang up the completed ones in class or some students took them home to complete.

We swim next Thursday as well! Today was a very wet walk and a few students were underdressed. The three extra umbrellas in the classroom sure came in handy!

Have a great weekend! Cheers!

Wednesday, October 24

LA – Still working on writing 5-sentence paragraphs. Ask your child what the first sentence is called. The next three sentences? The last sentence?

MATH – Subtracting with borrowing. A few mistake students make:

  1. writing the smaller number on top: e.g.     234                                                                                                                           –497

2. subtracting bottom to top: e.g.  765                                                                                                                                    – 376                                                                                                                                        411

You can’t take 6 away from 5! Or 7 away from 6!

3. Borrowing from zeroes: e.g.   3004                                                                                                                                    -875

These ones mix them up. Give your child a subtracting question that requires borrowing and one borrowing over zeroes.

SOCIAL STUDIES – Into chapter two. Vocabulary so far: founding peoples (Canada has 3), creation story, Aboriginal peoples, First Nations, Inuit and Métis,

SCIENCE – Students will know their chapter 4 test scores as we will be going over the test tomorrow.

FRENCH – Started a new booklet on Halloween.

ART – Halloween art is out on the bulletin board. I’ll post pics soon but check it out if you are in the school!

If you send me a pic of your jack-o-lantern, I will post it online.

SWIMMING ON FRIDAY! Bring towel and trunks! We walk to the pool rain or shine so dress for the weather!

Cheers!

Mr. H
