What have we been up to?
It sounds like everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! I hope you enjoyed seeing the students' pumpkins that came home as decoration for your home!
In Language we have been learning how Making Connections helps us as readers to remember details and understand texts in a deeper way. We read the Great Kapok Tree and practiced making
text to world connections about the story.
In Science we have continued to study simple machines and students explored inclined planes in our everyday world. We also had our chance to build inclined planes of our own and use spring scales to see how they lessen the work!
This week we have no spelling words because we have our field trip to Duntroon Highlands on Thursday and because of the PD Day on Friday.
In Math we continue to study Data Management, with a focus on bar graphs this week. We are learning how to write a good survey question, record the responses and then make a bar graph about the survey. We will be having our unit math test on Tuesday October 24th.
