In Math, we completed our units on Fractions. Students learned how to name, identify and represent equal parts. They can also name fractions of a whole. We are now working on Geometry. Students are learning about polygons and 3D objects: pyramids, prisms and others (cone, sphere,cylinder). Students will describe these objects by determining how many faces, edges and vertices they have. We began our last Science unit on Plants and Soil.
Don’t forget that we will be going to Kouchibouguac on Thursday for our end of the year field trip! Parents are welcome to join us at the Kouchibouguac Park. We will be there around 9:45!

This week, we will be starting our Social Studies unit: New Brunswick. We will talk about our cities, natural resources, transportation and jobs in New Brunswick. In Language Arts, we continue to work on the 6 +1 Writing Traits to develop more independant writing. We are presently focusing on Word Choice to make our stories more interesting to the reader. We continue to do the Daily 5 activities everyday. We also review our French sounds, oral structures and cursive writing. In math, we will begin our Multiplication and Division Unit. Please practice times tables with your child up to 5X5. Students can also practice by using the math websites that I posted on our website.
Have a great week! Looking forward to meeting you for Parent-Teacher interviews.

In French Language Arts, we have commenced a Health unit. We are learning about the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. We are also looking at the different food groups and what types of food go in each group. We are talking about healthy, balanced meals. We continue to work on "Winter" and "Valentine" vocabulary. We will work on narrative texts. We will focus on the Ideas and Convention writing traits. We will discuss what makes a good story (beginning, middle, end, details) and review the writing process (plan, write, revise, correct, edit, publish). In Math, we keep continue to review basic math facts and some mental math strategies (doubles, near doubles, making ten). We are also working on rounding off numbers to the nearest tens and estimating sums.
Have a great week!

In French this week, we will be discussing activities that we like to do with our families. Students will also talk about their favorite hobbies/pastime. Oral structures may include: Je joue .. Je promène mon chien au parc. Je magasine au centre d’achats avec… We completed our class book on " Nos animaux dometiques" ( Our Pets). The students enjoyed writing about their pet and presenting their pet. I made many copies of their book. Your child will be bringing home the book next week. Please listen to your child read their book to you. Enjoy! Students have been bringing home a levelled book seen during a Guided Reading session. They will read the same book for 2 nights. I encourage rereading books to increase accuracy and fluency each time the book is read. Each Monday and Wednesday, I will send home one levelled book seen during a Guided Reading session. Happy reading!
