Happy New Year!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing time with family. I am looking forward to working with students again! 

Math - We will be continuing with our unit on Data Management, with a focus on line graphs, including double line graphs. Once this unit is completed, our next math strand is Measurement with a focus on perimeter and area, and some fun activities to go along with this. Students really enjoyed participating in the hour of code, and this is something we will be looking at again. 

Language - We will be spending time this month on getting back to the basics to help improve our writing and spelling. We will be looking at spelling, grammar, and online reading activities. I will be getting your child set up on a reading website called Raz- Kids. It is a wonderful website that looks at vocabulary, comprehension, cause and effect, sequencing and reading tests. Before we start a new read aloud, we will finish a shared reading activity that also involves media. It will challenge your child to use their imagination and creativity! 

Thank you for continuing to follow my Blog. We have a visit this Friday from a teacher from Convent Glen who will be working with students on some fun math activities! Please make sure your child is dressing for the cold and wintery weather that is upon us!
