Reminder that the at home project (name posters) is due tomorrow. Students need to bring it to school and put it in the hand-in box for Ms. Lui. Thanks! We are looking forward to reading each others’ stories about how we got our names.
What have we been doing?
Language Arts – We are studying the letter Qq this week. Students are working on writing short sentences and practicing reading poetry. We will be learning about rhyming words in February!
Math – We are learning about measurement! We have already started learning to measure length using nonstandard units of measure (ex., This table is 25 cubes long. This box is 3 sticks long.). After a couple more lessons to measure length, students will learn about weight and capacity.
Measuring our heights using string.
PM Program – We started PM Program with Div. 5 and we are learning about polar bears.
Science – We are learning about the 5 senses. We have been exploring the 4 tastes (sweet, salty, sour, bitter) by discussing taste and sorting foods into the taste groups.
Social Studies – We learned about personal and social responsibility. Students brainstormed different personal and social responsibilities. We will have a couple more Group Language Lessons with the whole school about this.
Art – Have you seen the new art we have been doing around the room? We will do a Groundhog Day art activity tomorrow! Div. 6 students have also been learning about rhythm and beat in music and taking part in drama games and activities.
