We began the day finishing our novel study: Horrible Harry and the Holidaze. We then discussed our favourite part in the story and explained why we chose the specific event.
Next we had more time to talk about our marvelous march breaks!
After we had French and then Gym.
After first recess and lunch we dove into our new math unit about number patterns. We looked at numbers on the white board and we determined the number pattern. We first determined the number that we began with and then if we are adding or subtracting or multiplying to determine the number pattern. We used a hundred’s chart to help us. Then, we worked in partners on a number pattern activity. We rolled a dice and used this number as our number pattern. We then rolled the dice and began with this number. Next we determined the next 5 numbers that would come in our pattern.
After second recess and lunch we wrote about what we learned during our Simple Machines unit. Then we began our new unit about Structures. Before beginning this unit, Ms. Jaskolka gave us a challenge. We pretended that we were working at a store and we needed to organize the objects Ms. Jaskolka gave us onto four shelves. This was a tricky task but we were up for it!!!! We figured out that the items were made of different materials. We then had a conversation about the importance of the materials that structures are made of because if a building was made using paper, for example, it would fall down!!!! During this unit we will explore the materials that structures are made of that allow them to be stable and strong.
