A short but busy week.
We have been practicing the song Alouette (the video and song are under resources) for a picnic we will be having with all K/1 French Immersion classes June 5. You will be receiving a notice home inviting to join us.
We had our class and whole school picture done on Tuesday. Plus, we had a presentation called Adventure Smart. They taught the students how to survive if you get lost in the woods. You would have seen a large amount of information that was sent home in La Pochette Tuesday.
Ask your child if they remember what to do if they are lost in the woods.
In math, we have been practicing counting 0-100, backwards 20-0, skip counting by 2, 5 and 10 using a 100's chart. We finished up our timelines and have started measuring.
We have been writing sentences, drawing the sentence and then labeling it. Students sentences are getting better and better. Most of the them are remembering to start with a capital letter, leave spaces between our words and finish with a full stop.
I have been encouraging students to be creative with their sentences using words with specific sounds.
In Science with Mme Wilkinson, they have been learning at about magnetism.
Students come in every morning and read sight words. They each take a turn to read and fill in the blanks. This is something we have been doing since the first day of school. Since they are experts at it, the special people of the week lead this part of the morning. This past weeks special helpers were Kayden and Natalie.
Next week it is Isaac and Matthea.
Crazy Hair day! We made crazy hats the day before in case some children didn't get a chance to do their hair. And some did have a chance to do their crazy hair!
Students engaged and critically thinking about the timeline they are looking at. Making sure it has all the criteria.
Students have been working on timelines and one activity was to plan a school day with certain criteria. Then the students had to walk around and look at each others day, make sure it had all the criteria and then vote on the one they thought would be the best. It had to have the mandatory criteria or it could't be considered.
We had 2 shots at it as one was a learning experience. Some learned that lunch at the end of he day wasn't a good idea, you had to make sure you counted how many activities you had in a day so you had enough, you had to have a good order and maybe adding pictures beside the words would help people tell what they had done.
On the last try at this, students came up with much better timelines. They voted. 2 groups were chosen but were missing one of the criteria that was necessary.
In the end, Riley and Thomas' timeline will be used as the school day later next week.
Practicing measuring with a string. Which taller? Which is shorter? We also estimated documented our findings by drawing it out.
Playing Piccadilly Circus with our grade 6 buddy class after planting our plants.
Measuring and comparing the length of our feet.
