Humanities- This week the students worked hard to finish their province presentations. We will begin viewing these on Monday. We were also able to finish reading “Tuck Everlasting”. We did some activities in preparation for Global Read Aloud, which begins on Monday. Students will be connected with a couple classes around the world, so we worked on some posts that will have others guessing our location and created a padlet that introduces ourselves to our partner classes.
Math - Two place value check-ins have been taken and the results have been posted on FreshGrade. If you haven't had the chance to log in with your parent account, please do so as we have been using the platform to submit and evaluate students' work. Parent invites to student accounts were sent out via email weeks ago. Check your junk mail folder just in case.
Science - Students completed their work on adaptations of wetland organisms. We will do a gallery walk to showcase the different adaptations of organisms that live in wetlands. Finished copies will be submitted on FreshGrade (some have been posted already). Some students have had a chance to begin a self study on food chains and food webs.
Ralph Klein Park Trip
We will be going to Ralph Klein Park on Wednesday for the whole day. Students need to be bring: a bagged lunch, snacks, and water bottle along with emergency medications like an epi-pen and puffer. Students will be spending the day outside and should be dressed for the weather conditions of the day. Please check the forecast.
