Band instrument choice On Thursday of this week, students had the opportunity to try out all the instruments that they can choose from for the grade 6 band next year. They have been asked to have a discussion about their choices at home. Please have this conversation, as they will be the making their top 3 choices next week. Every effort will be made to match students with an instrument that is of interest to them and suited to them. Efforts will be made to ensure their first choice. However, students must understand they may end up playing the second or third choice as approved by the band teacher. We must ensure the proper instrumentation to provide success to each student and the band program as a whole.
June Procedures: As the final month of school approaches there are a few things to keep in mind for a successful closing to the grade 5 year.
Math: this week we had a close look at comparing and ordering fractions. Students have taken these understandings and complete the “sub sandwich problem”. Recordings of your child explaining how their group solved the problem can be found on Seesaw. Today we moved on to a problem called “the unusual baker” which brings together the relationship between fractions and decimals.
Science: our science focus this week revolved around students working through the science detours that are part of the Amazing Race. Ask your child to show you which detour they have recently completed. They are all found on google docs/slides.
Humanities: Our Humanities time this week was spent working on Amazing Race Tasks and Novel Reading. We are halfway through, “The Girl Who Drank the Moon.” Students completed a task that demonstrates their understanding of the novel so far. We also wrote in the opinion journals this week. Please check Seesaw for their latest opinion. Next week students will start their final novel study project. All work with Amazing Race and novel study will wrap up June 18th.
