Math: This week we continued to learn about our math starters that we begin each class with. We also continued to sharpen our cribbage skills. In addition, we did a review of place value from last year using a dice game. Thanks to all the parents who dusted off the cribbage boards and challenged your child to a game.
Science: In addition to our trip to the Ralph Klein constructed wetland where students had the opportunity to pond dip for invertebrates as well as learn about the differences between stormwater and wastewater (and how we care for our watershed in different ways), we also began to explore the different types of wetlands and why they may be important.
Humanities: This week we continued our work on identity. Students completed an activity that focused on their name. We also focused on building our geographical knowledge of Canada. We completed 2 mapping activities, and a reading about Canada. Next we students will do an activity that examines their personal history, and we will begin an inquiry into Canadian Identity.
Seesaw and Agenda: The students were able to use their digital agenda this week. They shared the document with their parents through email. It is our hope that you all have access to your child’s agenda. If you are not able to access the document please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org and the link will be sent to you. The students also set up their Seesaw accounts this week. Parents should expect to receive an email invite next week. You are welcome to download the Seesaw Family App from the Apple App Store or Google Play store in preparation. Seesaw can also be accessed as a web based program. Each student’s portfolio has several different classes. When we send the email please follow the instructions so you have access to math, science, humanities and the specialty classes.
A always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns
