We had a great first week back at school. I have a wonderful group of Grade 5 students! Students completed for me a favourite summer memory activity. They were then asked to present this memory to the class. Parents will be able to see their child's work on Thursday evening. In Math, students began a length of summer activity that has a focus on problem-solving and number sense and numeration concepts. I am sure they told you about the STEM challenge. Can You Build A Bridge for 21 Elephants? They had a great time!!
Math this week - finish up a length of summer activities, start working on addition and subtraction concepts which will eventually start our Number Sense and Numeration strand with a focus on place value.
Language this week - finish up presenting our favourite summer memory. We will start a read aloud based on the reading strategy making connections. Students will learn how to make personal connections between a piece of reading material and their own experiences or life in general. Students will also be starting an All About Me Biography Google Slide Presentation. This biography will take us most of September to complete and present.
Just a reminder to make sure your child has an indoor pair of shoes for gym. Please continue to follow my Blog. I try to tweet out pictures throughout the week of students working in and out of the classroom. I look forward to meeting parents on Thursday evening. Please see below a list of math and language websites where students, in their free time, can explore. Just click on each weblink.
