It is great so far how well our class has been doing with getting our forms in, keep up the good work!
In language art this week we worked on how to write a paragraph: starting with a topic sentence, adding 3-5 idea sentences, and ending with a closing sentence. By the end of the week we had written a paragraph about Terry Fox. They are on display in our hallway.
We spent some time on Thursday doing a big math review, and on Friday completed the beginning grade math assessment. This will give me a little insight in where we will be focusing on for the next 2-3 months.
We spent all week completing a map of Canada, by labelling the provinces and capital cities. P.E.I. continues to be tricky to find using a map, but we managed.
For science we went through the scientific method with an experiment. We had to make a hypothesis about which mixture (baking soda, soap, hot sauce, lemon juice, or Windex) would work best to clean dirty pennies. We went through each step, and discovered lemon juice was the best, with hot sauce a close second.
We learned how to say hello, how are you, and give an answer in French. So you can try to test them this weekend with a ‘Comment ca va?’ and see if they remember.
In art we worked on Picasso self portraits. They will be on display next week, with a fun guess who game to go along with them.
The Terry Fox run was a lot of fun, some students really pushed themselves during the run.
Next week we are going to start looking at government in social studies, as the Provincial election was called, so we will be following along with that. We will start our pattern unit in math, as well as our phases of matter unit in science. Wednesday is Orange shirt day, and we will be learning about it on Tuesday.
Have a good long weekend, and see you Tuesday.
