This week we spent the majority of our time working on new math concepts, including:
The students’ rubrics for their Ember Inventions were uploaded to FreshGrade along with their planning pages, self assessment and final reflection.
Looking ahead: We will be learning about electromagnets and learning how to read electrical meters. Possible walk to Weaselhead on Tuesday or Thursday. More information to come on Monday.
We finished reading The City of Ember. Yay! Please ask your child about the ending of the story. Next week we will be watching the movie and having a potluck. Following this we will be doing a comparison between the movie and novel. Students did a self assessment for their humanities work over the duration of this past term. If you were unable to attend student led conferences, your child should be bringing home their self assessment to review with you.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Field Trips and Volunteers
We're going on a field trip to Telus Spark on April 10 (Tue), we're still looking for volunteers to join us. We would like to have about 4-5 volunteers per homeroom. If you'd like to join us and already have completed your volunteer clearance forms, please contact your child's homeroom teacher. We also have two subsequent trips after this one; both on Tuesdays:
- Fort Calgary & St. Patrick Island April 17th (Tue) and Heritage Park: April 24th (Tue)
