Thank you for following Mrs. Chamberland's Grade 5 class this year on my Blog and Twitter! Have a wonderful summer vacation!
It is a short week. Bike Rodeo tomorrow, Faith Assembly on Tuesday morning, Report Cards go home on Wednesday, and students are allowed to wear their pyjamas on Thursday as I will be showing them the movie, Wonder.
Math - Geometry focus will be on coordinate geometry and rotations, reflections, and transformations.
Language - Having fun with poetry, Wonder read aloud, and presenting our IMovies!!
Extra - Thursday, June 21st - Grade 5's will be on a Field Trip with Ms. Schmaltz's Grade 1 Class to the Indigenous Festival. Friday, June 22nd- We will be walking to Good Shepherd Church to celebrate the end of the school year. Please remember to hand in permission forms allowing students to take part in the walk to the church.
I was very proud of the hard work and effort that was put into the Faith Assembly on Friday by Grade 5 students. We also had a great day at the Ottawa Athletic Club. On Monday and Tuesday afternoon, there will be track and field tryouts. Students chosen will go on to the Track and Field Meet on June 13.

I hope everyone enjoyed their super long weekend!! Here is a look at what is happening next week in our classroom.
Math - We will finish up our Probability Unit tomorrow, and have a short quiz on Wednesday. I will go over with students what they need to know for the quiz. Our next unit of study will be on Algebra. Students have already worked on math questions, during some of our daily math warm-ups, that have included algebra. I will be showing students this short video on Probability and Tree Diagrams on Tuesday.
Language - We are working on our Media Projects this week using iMovie on the Ipads. This project fits in with our Book Clubs that we have recently finished. We are also continuing to read "Wonder" and reflecting throughout the book on the various perspectives the story is being told.
Happy Mother's Day! Hope you enjoyed the card that your child made for you! We had a wonderful and busy Education Week, it was nice to see parents during our open house. On Wednesday, students will be traveling to Carleton University to participate in a Science Expo. On Thursday, I will be at the Peace Festival with a few of our student volunteers. A reminder, that Friday is a PD day for all students. It will be a busy, short week!
Math - We continue with Probability and Fractions. A short quiz will take place next week. More information to follow.
Language - We are continuing with our read aloud "Wonder." We have completed the reading in our Book Clubs. We will be doing some consolidating this week, and begin if we have time, our media project that will be connected to our Book Clubs.
