Pot of Gold!

We kicked off our week with a fun filled morning with our Grade 5 Learning Buddies doing a “green challenge” to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. We were pleasantly surprised when we found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Our literacy blocks are very productive. We are working on vocabulary puzzles for […]

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back!

An important part of our unit is identifying the lessons that stories teach us. During our literacy block we have started a lessons book for all the stories we are reading from Tales from Within the Clouds. This week during our writing time we read a short biography about Dr. Seuss and learned more about […]

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

We started our week by unscrambling our central idea: People tell stories in various ways to share ideas, teach lessons, and express feelings and beliefs. We also unscrambled our first line of inquiry: Different genres of stories. We then took the “bigger” words that we weren’t sure what they meant, looked up the definitions in […]

We all took some time to write nice messages to each other and they put smile in our hearts. May love always be the force that moves our […]

In the midst of the busyness we made a good luck fish, and a pig in lieu […]

Happy 2019!

We loved hearing about all the wonderful places and things everyone did.   In math we focused on using our knowledge of place value to add and subtract 10, 100, and 1,000. We worked on identifying which digit would […]

Happy Holidays!

We have been working with understanding place value. We have discussed how each digit has a value and this helps us to determine which one is greater, less, or in some cases equal. We focused on using the appropriate symbols and language: greater than, less than, and equal to. We had special guests in our classroom, […]

How We Organize Ourselves

Reflection is an important step in our learning. We identified what we learned about ourselves and our classmates in sharing our personal artifacts. We self-reflected about the attributes we each displayed this unit and the ones we really want to focus on for the next unit. For each unit we also change seats so that […]
