This week was a lot of fun with our Terry Fox run on Thursday. Our school ran over 1000km all together, 1/5th what Terry accomplished! It was great to get out and run for an extended time.
In language arts this week we worked on writing a paragraph about Terry Fox. We worked hard on editing and proofreading it. They are on display in the foyer.
In math we worked on using variables to solve a problem, so an example would be 6+n=13. We played around with the order of equations, and wrote some word problems of our own. Friday’s quiz went well, with only a few minor mistakes.
In science we looked more into the 3 phases of matter and how they change from solid, liquid, and gas. We also briefly looked at plasma, another phase of matter, and how that is created.
In social studies we finished off levels of government with a paragraph on which level they feel is most important. We also created a class Venn diagram using newspaper headlines and putting them in the right category.
On Friday we discussed the 3 main types of government, and discussed how Canada is a democracy.
Our spelling test this week was on the provinces and territories. They did well with their pretest, which was sent home, and on Monday we will have our final. Study up this weekend!
We continued our French basic can conversations learning about bien and mal. We are slowly getting there.
Next week on Monday is Orange Shirt day, we will discuss and write a paragraph about it. We will also look into nouns, verbs, and adverbs, in preparation for Mad Lib Friday’s. We will finish our pattern work in math with a review and test on Friday. We will start looking into mixture and solutions in science, with a couple of fun experiments. And in socials we will look at the different political parties of Canada. It is going to be another busy week, especially with our class Hustle on Tuesday and handball starting.
Don’t forget to sign those online forms about media and field trips! Have a good weekend and see you Monday.
