Writer's Workshop with the focus on narrative writing. We have strategies such as writing partners, heart maps, the tiny notebook, and the five finger planning tool to help us S-T-R-E-T-C-H out our small moment writing.
Daily independent reading to help us build stamina. The students LOVE to read to their friends and book buddies and enjoy visiting our learning commons and Bookmobile. Ask your child if they know what text features are and if they can give you an example out of our big book "Inuksuks- A Guide to Artic Canada".
We have been very busy practicing skip counting (getting ready for multiplication), learning about odd and even numbers, double digit addition, ordinal numbers, problem solving, and a class favourite: Number of the Day.
Mapping and all about Canada. Ask your child how many Provinces and Territories we have in Canada. I bet they can even name some capital cities!
"Kids in the Know" with Mr. B and Mindfulness with Ms. Oviatt. We have really been focusing kindness and how to treat others and be a nice friend at school.
We have been busy learning lots and working hard. Thank you for your support with reading 15 minutes a night at home! Spelling lists are on their way home very soon. For now ask your child to show you how to sign into Spelling City and practice playing a few spelling games on your computer or phone. Storyline Online is also a nice way to do home reading to change it up!
