Good afternoon parents and students,

We've been learning and practicing our doubles facts in math this week. Students have been using the strategies count ondouble +1 and double -1 to solve math problems. They have an extra math packet to work on over the long weekend.

In social studies we learned about making choices and the difference between needs and wants. Students learned that goods and services can be scarce.

In ELA we did some descriptive writing. Students described their snacks using their 5 senses - and then ate them! In reading class, Raz kids is up and running. The students all really enjoy using it, and are encouraged to read as much as possible at home. In phonics we reviewed ou and ow sounds (eg. house, flower).

Lastly, the students were very busy engineers in science class this week. We learned that engineers are people who solve problems. We learned about different types of bridges - beam, truss, and arch - and we followed the design process to plan, build, test and improve our own bridges. So much fun!


Reminders


  • Use Raz-kids and Mathletics for extra reading and math practice.
  • Next week is a 2-day week. We only have school on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thank you for reading, and have a fantastic loooooong weekend!

Mr. Harris
