Wednesday April 11, 2018
We began the day presenting our structure projects. Check out how hard we all worked on researching and gathering information on our chosen structure!!!
Next we had French.
After we headed over to the career’s day presentation. This presentation informed us of the amazing professional opportunities available to us when we get older!!!!
Following first recess and lunch we dove into our new math unit: Length, Perimetre and Area. Today students learned how to measure length in centimetres. First we discussed where we have heard the term centimetres before. Ms. Jaskolka modeled for us how to use a ruler to measure using centimetres. Then students practiced using a ruler by measurement body parts! We used an observation chart to record our measurements of body parts in pairs (hand, thumb, arm, leg, foot, nose).
We also discussed benchmark lengths that can be used to help estimate a length:
Finger – 1 cm wide
Classroom door – 100cm wide
Next, we played a measuring game in partners! We found objects around the classroom that were less than 30cm. We each made a prediction about the length of the object, and the partner that had the closest estimate moved forward on the game board!!!
After Math we continued our structure presentations.
Following second recess and lunch we continued with our structure presentations. At the end of the day, we read chapter two of our novel study: A perfect time for pandas.
Have a great night!!
