We began the day writing out homework in our agendas and then our unit 22 spelling words.
We then had physical education with Mr. Slyk.
After we began our new math unit. We looked at the Big Math Book and saw the various ways that the number 67 was shown. We saw it on a hat, shirts, hundred’s chart, dog collar. We then discussed what we knew about the number 67. 67 is less than 100, 67 is greater than 50, it is quite a bit more than 10, close to 65. Other ways that we could show the number 67 is using ten frames (6 ten frames and 7 counters) and 6 ten sticks and 7 individual cubes. We then had a similar conversation about the number 48. We discussed how 48 is close to 50, it is an even number, it is 4 tens 8 ones. The ways we can show 48 are: 4 ten frames and 8 counters, sets of tallies, 4 ten sticks and 8 individual cubes, 48 in words. 48 is smaller than 67, on 100 chart its 2 rows above 67, 48 is even 67 is odd. We also used a place value mat to represent the numbers 48:
After first recess and lunch we discussed Easter during our unit of inquiry. Students worked in partners and practiced their research skills. They read information about how Easter is celebrated in Canada. After, students picked out the important information and filled out a fun graphic organizer.
We then had French with Mdm. Stella.
After second recess and lunch, we began reading Flat Stanley: Japanese Ninja surprise. We met Arthur and Stanley Lambchop. We learned that Stanley became flat because a bulletin board fell on him in his sleep; he was unharmed but his body became flat. Arthur and Stanley are both big fans of Oda Nobu, a movie star who plays the character of a Samurai. They both really want to meet Oda Nobu but he lives all the way in Japan! Stanley came up with the idea that we would mail himself in an envelope and get sent to Japan to meet Oda Nobu.
