Wow we worked hard this week, with almost everyone finally caught up! Next week will be another hard one, as we finish off some projects.
With our novel study we have finish typing up our synopsis of the book, as well as draw the 6 main events of the story, and designed our fantasy library. wlWe also created our own rebus puzzles! They turned out great! We have to finish off our character cards and design a front page, then we are done.
In poetry we learned about haiku poems and couplets. With our haiku, we have the syllables down, though still need to practice using powerful words, and not use ‘good’. Our couplet poems so far have been pretty fun, as the students like rhyming.
In math we started our money unit, first by finding out how much our names are worth in a puzzle. We then were given a menu with food prices, and stent the week adding and subtracting the values.
We finished off our timeline posts about Canada, and will go over them next week. We did a bonus timeline about more fun things about Canadian history. We will also be playing the came ‘Timeline’ with our dates.
In science we started our biome boardgame project. Groups will be making a board game based off a specific biome. Their game will resemble what the biome looks like. It will also include fact cards about their biome. We have completed about 1/3rd of the facts this week. Next week we should finish up the facts.
In French we learned about Le Carnival De Quebec, the largest winter festival in the world. We took notes on all of the attractions and events, and will be making a brochure about it next week.
With Wednesday being pink shirt day, our class designed some pink shirts with positive messages. They are in our hallway for now, and will be places on our window next week.
Next week we will be using grocery flyers to create budgets and meal plans for math, finish off our poetry with limericks and break line poems, finish our novel study booklet, go over our Canadian timeline as a class, and finish research our biome in science. Will be another busy week.
Have a good weekend and stay safe.
