Posted: October 2, 2017

Welcome back to another week in 4FI Glazier and our first week of October. It was great to see our students participate in Orange Shirt Day and our Terry Fox walk last Friday.

A reminder that next Monday is Thanksgiving weekend. There will be NO school on the 9th.

French - Daily work consist of word work, reading, and writing. Students continue to draft a descriptive writing piece on a person of interest. Last week student’s wrote and introduction and 1st paragraph describing their chosen person. This week’s focus will be tastes/preferences, and what makes them special. Vocabulary quiz on Friday.

Please note that the expectation as well is to read 10-15 minutes every night as homework. There will be evenings where your child will have the same book for consecutive nights. Doing so enables students to re-read and master the book. Books sent home have been rehearsed in class.

Math - We will be learning strategies to add 3 and 4 digits i.e. read from right to left, placing additions vertically, etc. Next week will be subtraction. Practice sheets will be sent home. We continue to review our 2 and 4 multiplication facts. We are slowly progressing with the 5 family. Expectation is up to 8x8 in Gr.4. Students will also practice writing numbers 20-30. Quiz on Friday. Unfinished work will be sent home.

Social Studies - We will be quickly reviewing the province of New Brunswick (major cities, geographical features, population, flag, urban vs rural areas, water ways, etc.). From there, we will be exploring the provinces and territories of Canada. Later, students will conduct a research project of a given province and/or territory. Details to follow in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. I will respond via phone call as promptly as I can. Let’s have a great week! Cheers :)

The expectation as well is to read 10-15 minutes every night as homework. There will be evenings where your child will have the same book for consecutive nights. Doing so enables students to re-read and master the book. Books sent home have been rehearsed in class.

I also encourage students to also review and practice saying and writing their numbers up to one hundred in French.

Welcome back to another week in 4FI Glazier. Our first week back is already in the books. It was fantastic to say the least! I am very impressed with the wealth of French that students have retained over their summer vacation. Routines and norms have been established. I look forward to a wonderful year ahead.

Please note that Fluoride consent forms were sent home on Friday. Please return to school if you have not already done so. Various notes (cafeteria menu, etc.) as well were also placed in your child’s reading bag.

Fire drill and lockdown procedures were reviewed last week and will continue this week. We will have a chance to practice as a school throughout the week.

French - We are in the process of establishing reading levels and groups. Once complete, books will be sent home to be read. The expectation is to read 10-15 minutes every night as homework. Books sent home have been rehearsed prior to being sent home.

Also, we have also begun to write. Last week, we established certain themes and individual words to be rehearsed throughout the week as part of our Daily 5 routine. Our first writing assignment will be an Informative piece. Students will be writing a descriptive writing piece as a final product.

Math - Students are learning about place value. Students are currently reviewing their numbers in French (orally/written). Last week’s assignment was to manipulate large numbers into tables, represent pictorially, and break down into individual strands. This week, we will correct and continue to practice.

Health - We are currently learning about our emotions. Last week’s theme was Appreciation. We learned to be thankful and respectful to others. This week, we will be looking at wants vs needs.

Please note:

  • Meet the teacher Wednesday, Sept 14th at 6 p.m.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. I will respond via phone call as promptly as I can. Let’s have a great week! Cheers :)
