Tomorrow students will be in grade 3!! Please drop off all their belongings with Ms. Soroka in M5 as they will be spending the day in her room.
We had a very busy and exciting day!
We began the day reading Oil Spill by Mervin Berger again so we could better understand how oil spills occur and how to prevent them. We also read Water Hole by Graeme Base. Reading this book we learned about how important it is for us to protect the water because all living things need it to survive. We then finished working on our Science board for the Science Fair. Students did a fantastic job!
Afterwards, we continued learning about coins in math. We discussed the loonie and toonie. Students then worked on their coin package where they demonstrated their understanding of each coin.
Then it was time to present our Science Experiment to the judges!! Students showed how much they have learned about pollution, oil spills, and the importance of protecting our planet!
When we were finished, we had first recess and lunch.
Afterwards we had French.
When we returned, students had their unit 11 spelling test. Then we watched a Bill Nye the Science Guy video about Architecture. Afterwards, we discussed the important points from the video. We talked about the different materials that buildings can be made of and how structures need a strong base they will not fall down. We also discussed how architects ask many questions when the begin planning such as: what will the structure be used for? Will it be a home? Office building?
After second recess and lunch, it was time to show our parents and the rest of the school our Science fair experiment. We also got a change to look at the other science fair experiments, which were educational as well as fun!

We spent the day with Ms. DaCosta’s class because she is sick.
We began the day having art with Mr. Monoghan and physical education with Ms. Lovan.
Afterwards, we continued learning about materials and what objects are made of. Ms. Jaskolka looked around the classroom and told us the materiel of an object, and then we needed to figure out what the object was. Then we had a turn to look around our classroom and inquire into what the various objects in our room are made of. We then completed a worksheet where we needed to figure out if an object was made of plastic, wood, or metal. We also looked at different objects and answered if they were made of glass, wood, feathers, metal, or fabric.
We then had lunch and got ready for our trip.
We spent most of the afternoon tree decorating in Streetsville and having some fun.
When we returned, we continued working on the materials worksheets from this morning and then did some silent reading.
We did such a great job today that Ms. Jaskolka gave us each house points at the end of the day!
