This week in Math, we will be starting with our Number Sense and Numeration unit with a focus on Place Value. I will be giving students a pre-assessment this week to see what they have remembered from Grade 4. Any unfinished work in class becomes homework. This will be written in the agenda.
Language - Finishing up our "All About Me" activities this week. I will be assigning students a Summer Fun Project today. Information, with a due date, will be going home with your child.
Thank you for returning the forms that have been sent home! Looking forward to meeting everyone on Thursday evening at 6:30 for Curriculum Night.
Welcome Back, everyone! I will be your Grade 5 Math and Language Teacher this year. My name is Mrs. Kirsty Chamberland. Students will be taking home a newsletter on Tuesday that includes a brief outline of the school year.
I update my Blog on a weekly basis. I like to keep parents informed on what is going on in the classroom. I also take pictures of various activities happening throughout the school year. I post these pictures on my Twitter account.
I suggest buying your child an agenda from the Dollar Store. I am aware that not everyone will be checking my Blog regularly. On Tuesday there will be a number of forms coming home with your child on Tuesday. Please fill them out and return to school as soon as possible.
I look forward to working with your child this year!!
Math - Probability Quiz on Monday. Fractions and Decimals will be a focus for the last two weeks.
Language - We will be finishing up our CASI. We will be finishing up our Poetry Unit with a quiz on Thursday. I went over, what will be on the quiz, with students on Friday. Students have also been working on a brochure about adopting a pet. This is a culminating activity that goes along with our read aloud.
Math - Algebra Quiz on Monday. Our next math unit will be on Probability. We will also be taking time to learn more about fractions and decimals. This will be my focus with students for the month of June. Students should still be practising their multiplication facts.
Language - We are finishing our read aloud this week. "A Dog's Life." Students are really enjoying the book. We will be continuing with various styles of Poetry and writing our own poems.
