We began the day practicing writing a letter and recount. Our topic: Ms. Jaskolka was away yesterday and she wants to know all about our fun day! So we wrote a letter to her letting her know! We ensured to use the proper letter format and to use transition words within our recount.
Next we had French and then gym.
After first recess and lunch we continued working on our letter from this morning.
Next we continued working on our math reviews to prepare for our test tomorrow.
After second recess and lunch we moved onto UOI. We continued to explore migration and the reasons that people migrate from one country to another. We first read a book titled Migrant and we followed the story of a girl named Anna who wished that she was like a tree and could stay rooted in one place but instead she was like a bird moving back and forth between her home country and Canada. We learned that her family needed to make the journey to Canada so that they could make more money and then they would go home for fall and winter where there were not as many job opportunities. After our discussion about this book we worked in groups to come up with the many reasons people choose to migrate. We then worked as a class to organize the many push and pull factors we came up with. We started to see a pattern and managed to classify the push and pull factors under four categories: environmental, social, political and economy. We will continued exploring these four factors tomorrow.
