Reminder - No school on Monday, February 17th. Teachers have Professional Development Meetings scheduled.
Last week I forgot to mention on our weekly post that Thursday, February 13th, was our 100th day of school. The two classes, grade 5 and 4/5, combined together to build structures with 100 dixie cups. They had a lot of fun and we saw some very creative towers. I have posted a few photos below.
The students will be reminded of reading strategies that we have learned in previous years, check for understanding, go back and reread, for example this week. In writers workshop we have looked at a sample and will continue to talk about the traits or components we are striving for in our own writing.
Practice your math facts (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing). We have begun long division. We started with reviewing grade 4 outcomes (2 digits divided by 1 digit) and have begun 3 digit divided by 1 digit.
