Great Day

Library books came home today. They are due back at school next Thursday.

In math we continue working on our shapes unit. Check out some of the shape games on the blog under the geometry section. If you have time tonight ask your child to tell you what they know about a rectangle (4 sides, 4 vertices/corners, opposite sides are the same length).

In language today the students chanted out this week's word wall words and then worked independently to write 2 sentences in their journals. If you have time tonight please ask your child to read this week's word wall words to you and then to tell you a sentence using the word down.

Have a great evening.

Wonderful Day

Library books are due back at school tomorrow.

In math we did a shape hunt around our classroom and found many different shapes. Ask your child to tell you about a triangle (3 sides/3 corners) and then ask your child if they remember the math word for corner (vertex, vertices).

In language we chanted out this week's word wall words and then talked about the sound the letter g makes. If you have time tonight please ask your child to read this week's word wall words to you and then tell you a sentence using the word kick. If they tell you a sentence using kicked ask them what they have to add to the word kick to make kicked, and if they tell you a sentence using kicking ask them what they have to add to kick to make kicking.

Have a great evening.

Today in math we practised counting by 1s. 2s, 5s, and 10s to 100. The class worked in small groups and completed a counting by 2s activity. If you have time tonight please ask your child to fill in the missing numbers in this string of numbers:

34, 36,  ______, 40, 42, 44, 46, ______, _______

In language today the students chanted out this week's word wall words and then we began talking about media literacy. We defined media as anything you read, listen to, or see that gives information or entertains (books, posters, television, computers, radio, magazines, menus, signs).  We looked at a bunch of outdoor signs to see what the message is. If you have time tonight please ask your child to read this week's word wall words to you and then tell you a sentence using the word get.  Also, please show this sign to your child and ask them what it means:

In Science we have begun our next unit on energy. Please ask your child what energy is (energy is what makes things move and work). Ask your child to tell you the main source of energy for our planet (the sun) and what does the sun give us - heat and light and makes things grow.

Have a great evening.
