There are many updates to report!
In Math, we have been learning about measurement. Students designed their own backyard or their own bedroom and calculated the perimeter and area for each of the objects that they included in the design. In the past couple weeks we have been investigating fractions. We have used many classroom materials to demonstrate our knowledge and understanding of fractions.
In Language, we have been learning to answer Reading Comprehension questions with the ROPE strategy. First the student needs to RESTATE the question in their answer. Then they give their OPINION. Next they PROVE it by finding 2 pieces of information from the text to support their answer. Lastly they should EDIT to make sure that their answer makes sense and that it is answered correctly.
In Science, we have been learning about “Rock’s and Minerals”. Last Friday we had a presenter come to our school for a workshop. She brought many different rock, mineral and fossil samples. We worked together in groups to examine, sort and describe various types of rocks, minerals and fossils.
During Electives, everyone got a sheet to number their favourite activities from 1 to 10. Some of the options were to go swimming, make bath bombs and gymnastics. Some of the activities locations were not just at our school they were also in Mitchell and in St.Marys. On electives day everyone had tons of FUN!!!!
