Here is some important information regarding Camp Impeesa next week.
Please do not hesitate to email your child’s homeroom teacher if you have any additional questions. We are excited to be going to camp together and are looking forward to creating a memorable experience with your children.
Humanities: This week we worked on reading strategies. We have been looking for aha moments, tough questions and words of the wiser in stories we read and view. These signposts in our reading help us interact with the story and make personal connections. They guide us as readers and we are learning to recognize their importance. We also had the opportunity to try to put them into stories we are writing. We used a new writing platform, called Write About to craft a “mission impossible” story. Students can share their stories with you by using their google log in information to access this platform on any device. We also explored Canada’s beginnings as a country and learned about confederation. Next week is camp, and we only have 1 day in the classroom. This day will be spent reflecting on camp and preparing for our field trip to Fort Calgary. Please return the Fort Calgary Field trip forms on Monday. October seems far away, but we aren’t in class a lot before this trip.
Math: The students had the opportunity to tackle a problem that we requires perseverance and build their growth mindset. Both classes worked on the deca tree problem.
Science: This week the students began their wetland adaptations project. Each student is researching the adaptations of a wetland organism.
