Please ensure that your child brings their poem back to school tomorrow, we will be working on them in groups.
We began the day having French with Mdm. Stella.
After, we finished off our Structures unit by writing about what we learned during this unit. We then filled out a KWL chart about our next unit of inquiry. Our new unit is about Simple Machines. We wrote what we know and what to know about Simple Machines. We then watched a video to introduce simple machines.
We then began our spelling.
After first recess and lunch, students had physical education with Mr. Slyk.
We then moved onto math. We reviewed what we have learned so far about probability and then we continued tallying and graphing information. First we tallied the number of chairs in our class. We then chose two more items to tally in our classroom. After, we did an activity counting fish in a tank. We tallied the striped, spotted, and fish with whiskers. We then showed this information on a bar graph. On our bar graph, we needed to ensure to include the title (counting fish), labels (stripes, spots, whiskers), and that we counted accurately. We then made one true statement about our graph (ex: There are more striped fish than spotted fish in the tank).
When students were finished, they continued working on Spelling.
After second recess and lunch, students continued working on their Spelling.
When finished, students worked on a text to self activity related to Freckle Juice. Students wrote and drew a picture about a time that they were jealous of someone else, just like Andrew is jealous of Nicky Lane because of his freckles.
When students were finished, they had some time to work on their cursive.
