We’ve decided to have our own little class jersey day tomorrow. Please send your child in their favourite jersey (we will have a couple extras if you don’t have one!)
Everyone is doing a great job of organizing and researching information for their presentations! So nice to see them interested and improving their independent research skills!
Just a reminder that there is a bake sale today – so if your child wants to bring some change they an buy a treat. We also are swimming!
Sorry for the delay, but I finally sent home the social studies tests from a few weeks ago. I also sent home a couple of graphing assessments. Please take a moment to talk to your children about how they did and where they made mistakes. If a retest is desired please let me know.
We have been graphing the growth of plants and measuring liquids (as we mix fertilizer and water). Things are starting to really grow with several new sprouts coming through!
We are starting one of our culminating tasks. To trace our bodies and overlay each system we’ve studied onto it! Should be interesting!
We took advantage of the snow Friday to make snow angels and lay the various systems of our bodies inside them using sticks/leaves etc… turned out pretty well!
So we have finally built our garden! We used measurement skills to build it and today we found the area, perimeter and volume of each of the growing areas! If anyone has a real green thumb and wants to help with our garden please feel free to let me know! (I certainly don’t!)
We have spent the past week preparing for our social studies test tomorrow. Today we focused on “how” to study and tried to recognize what type of learner we are and study accordingly. Some great use of a wide variety of strategies! If you can- take some time to talk to your children about “how” you think they best remember information.
