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 and students will draw a balanced meal and present it to the class.  We continue to work on "Winter" vocabulary and 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 reviewing our numbers from 0-1000. This week students 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.  We will have a math test on numbers to 1000 on Thursday.

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:

     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.  I also uploaded videos of your child presenting their pets.  Please check out the videos on this site. 

     These last few weeks, your child has been bringing home levelled books seen during a Guided Reading session. They read their book for 2 nights instead of reading new books each night. 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!

This month, we continue our mathematics unit on increasing and decreasing patterns. Recognizing and analyzing patterns is an important part of mathematical thinking. Patterning concepts lead to work with algebra in higher grades. In this unit, your child will:  

• Identify, extend, create, and compare increasing patterns. 

• Identify, extend, create, and compare decreasing patterns. 

• Find pattern rules. • Display number patterns on hundred charts. 

• Use patterns to solve problems. 

Patterns can be found all around us. Encourage your child to look for patterns around the home and talk about them. Here are some suggestions for activities you can do at home: • Look for patterns in your family’s activities as marked on a calendar at home. What activities do you do daily? Twice a week? Every week? • Use small objects like buttons or coins to make patterns that grow or shrink. Encourage your child to describe and extend the patterns. • Count collections of nickels and dimes by 5s and by 10s. Count pennies by 2s.     *** We will continue to work on numbers from 0-100 in order to be better prepared for our 2nd unit: Numeration. We will also continue to work on Bar Graphs and Pictographs.  Mme Lockerbie

We will also learn how to take a survey using tally marks, and how do make a bar graph and picto-graph. For example, students will ask their friends: "Quelle est ta couleur préférée? "(What is your favourite colour?). Then, they will tally the answers and colour in the bar graph. In French literacy, we will continue to work on our first unit called "Je suis unique" (I'm unique). Students coontinue to learn vocabulary to describe themselves and their friends. They will also learn to express their preferences and dislikes.

Each Friday, students have a spelling test on the words studied in class during "Word Work". Presently, they are working on sight words.  Students practice their 6 words in class through daily hands-on activities. They do not have to study the words at home.  If you would like to go over our spelling words with your child at home, you may do so.

*** The 6 spelling words are included on the students' reading sheet. The words are written in the square box with a star in the corner.
