We began the day learning about contractions during spelling. We need to make sure that we put the apostrophe in the correct spot so that the word makes sense and is correct.
After, we had physical education with Ms. Lovan.
When students returned we worked on a subtraction question together: Melissa and Naveen went to a museum together. They saw Dr. Rockhound’s collection of 53 rare fossils. Mr. Rockhound said he was going to donate 19 of his fossils to the Museum of Civilization. How many fossils will he have left?
We created a place value mat and put 5 tens in the 10s column and 3 ones in the 1s column. We then borrowed ten from the tens column because we cannot take 9 away from 3. We then subtracted 9 from the ones column. Our next step was to subtract 1 ten from the tens column. Our answer is 34.
We then showed our knowledge in our Math Makes Sense books ensuring to use a place value mat to show our understanding.
During UOI, we learned how Easter is celebrated in Canada. We read about Easter in Canada and filled out a worksheet answering: what treats are brought on this day, who brings treats, what fun things can be done on this holiday etc. We then read a book about Easter to learn more about this holiday and how other countries celebrate this time.
After first recess and lunch we had French. After French, we wrote in our agendas and read some fun books that Ms. Jaskolka got from the Library.
After second recess and lunch, we completed any unfinished work and then continued reading about Easter in other countries.
