We did it! We finished off our last week before the winter break. It was a long one, felt like two weeks jammed together.
In math we had a two digit by two digit multiplication quiz, which showed me almost all the students have built up their number sense pretty well. Looks like a lot of students have been using their IXL at home, which is great!
In language arts we worked more on perspective writing, taking on different roles and writing from their point of view. We also wrote a journal entry about what our winter plans will be.
In social studies we finished off our Natural Resource booklets, currently on our Wonder Wall.
We also talked about the three Rs and made some paper! Though it’s more like cardboard.
In science we worked on our wheel and axle project, building a wind car! Took all week, and most were finished today. We will race them when we get back in January.
We also created some 3D snowflakes and coloured some French colour by number pictures.
On Tuesday we had our winter concert. It was great to see so many come out for our evening show. It was fantastic that our class was chosen to MC most of the show, especially three grade 4 students. They did a fantastic job.
Wednesday we went swimming. Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun.
And Friday was our Santa’s pancake breakfast and White Elephant Gift Exchange. The breakfast went well, everyone got to eat, and the lines were going pretty quickly. For our gift exchange, it was fun to see who got what, their reactions, and how almost everyone traded at the end.
Enjoy your two weeks off, because when we get back in January we are right back to work. Have a good holiday, and see you next year.
