Important Dates and Reminders
Oct 8-12: Fall Break
Oct 15: Balzac Meat Orders Due
It was wonderful meeting with so many of you at parent teacher interviews. We hope you have an amazing fall break.
Humanities: We had a fantastic day at Fort Calgary. We practiced some sketching skills that will help us over the course of the year. We also worked as archeologists and uncovered artifacts from groups that lived in Calgary over 100 years ago. In the classroom we continued to look at events that impacted Canadian identity and examined WWI. Coming up after the break we will begin our read aloud novel study and participate in this year’s Global Read Aloud. We will be reading, “Refugee.” We have a couple more events to cover in post confederation Canadian history. After this, students will begin an inquiry into an event, group of people, or individual that they feel made an impact on our current Canadian identity.
Science: Students worked hard this week to finish up their Wetlands Research Project. Please take some time with them over the break and have them share their hard work, and understandings of wetlands and adaptation.
Math: This week in math we completed our final check-in on place value and number forms. Looking forward to after break, we will be looking at regrouping. We have included a resource of "War" card game variations that will help build math fluency in a fun way.
