Monday February 26th - Friday March 2

Math - Students will continue to be learning about Perimeter and Area: estimate and measure the perimeter and area of regular and irregular polygons, using a variety of tools. 

– select and justify the most appropriate standard unit (i.e., millimetre, centimetre, decimetre, metre, kilometre) to measure length, height, width, and distance, and to measure the perimeter of various polygons.

  Solve problems requiring conversion from metres to centimetres and from kilometres to metres.

Determine, through investigation using a variety of tools (e.g., concrete materials, dynamic geometry software, grid paper) and strategies (e.g., building arrays), the relationships between the length and width of a rectangle and its area and perimeter, and generalize to develop the formulas [i.e., Area = length x width; Perimeter = (2 x length) + (2 x width)]

Language - Students are continuing with their Genius Hour Project. Students are allowed to work on this at home. The project will be completed as a Google Slide Presentation using pictures to go along with their presentation. I will also be sending home this week, a writing assignment that is to be completed at home on a weekly basis. This will be a writing response book, with writing prompts and a rubric included. Students need to practice this skill to become more confident in their spelling and grammar. Writing Prompts

I wish my teachers knew that . . .
What’s the most beautiful person, place, or thing you’ve ever seen? Share what makes that person, place, or thing so special.
Which is better, giant muscles or incredible speed? Why?
What is your most difficult subject in school? Why is it difficult? What can you do to get better at that subject? These are just a few examples.
