It is hard to believe that September is almost over! We have been having amazing, warm weather the last two weeks! Our Terry Fox Walk/Run is happening on Tuesday afternoon from 2:30-3:30. Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle and wear sunscreen and a hat!
Math - We continue with our daily math warm ups. Lots of math conversation among students! We are continuing Place Value. (Recognizing numbers up to the 100 000 in standard, expanded, words, and place value form). There will be a math test on Place Value sometime during the first week in October, before Thanksgiving Break! More to follow about that and what exactly students should be studying. I am continuing to send home weekly math practice in their notebooks. If students are not able to complete the work on the date assigned, please let me know through the agenda.
Language - We are continuing with our Family All About Me. I encourage students to work on this at home as well as school. I will be assigning a due date at the end of the week. We will then start presenting our Google Slide Presentations. We are continuing with our read aloud. Students are enjoying the book! This week we will be spending time talking about Terry Fox and what makes him a hero. Students will watch a short video about him and reflect on his courageous journey.
In Religion, Mrs. Schmaltz is introducing students for the next few weeks to lessons on "Samaritans on the Digital Road"- a resource for teachers of our board to engage students in learning about participating in the digital world in a proactive, responsible and compassionate manner. This resource is built upon the shoulders of Jesus' parable about the Good Samaritan.
