We will be having our math test next Thursday. Reviews went home today and are to be completed for Tuesday.
Summative projects are also due on Tuesday.
We began the day writing our spelling test and then our homework in our agendas.
We were then off to gym with Mr. Slyk.
After, we continued watching a Bill Nye video about the Water Cycle. We learned that the water cycle is so important because we never get new water but instead water travels through a cycle. Since we never get new water, we need to make sure we are practicing water conservation strategies and keeping our waters clean.
We then continued learning about fractions during math. We were given problem solving questions related to fractions. For example: 22 people want to get on the airplane. The airplane has 6 rows of 4 seats. Can everyone fit on the plane?
After, we continued working on our adventure or scary stories, ensuring all our ideas connect together and that we have a solution to our problem within our story.
After first recess and lunch, we had Music.
We then had French with Mdm. Stella.
After second recess and lunch, we had an assembly about the Fort McMurray fires. The grade 5’s taught as about what happened in Fort McMurray and how all the people had to leave their homes because of the fires. We found out that people were told that they only had 5 minutes to pack their things and then they had to leave. We were then asked, if we were only given 5 minutes to pack our things, what would we make sure to include. We also watched some videos to better understand the situation. Afterwards, we worked together to write letters to children from Fort McMurray, showing our support and concern for them. Here are some examples:
1. Read for 20 minutes
2. Summative due May 24
3. Summer Fiesta form
4. Lunch forms due May 23
5. Math review
6. Spelling test signed
