Week #5: We are continuing Unit 1 concepts, grammar and spelling for Language Arts this week. "Our Land and Resources" will be the unit theme. In Math we have completed our review/study of "Place Value of Addition and Subtraction." Test results will be coming home soon. We will be working in collaborative groups to solve a math performance task The students will continue with their "Google Slide" selection of Landforms. Please support your child by inspecting their homework before they submit it.
Please also ensure that your child is reading a minimum of 30 minutes each day, this should continue throughout the school year, and hopefully into the days, weeks and months to come. I also encourage you to visit our local library on Merkley Ave and request a library borrowing card for your child if you have not already done so.
Remember, the way to become a better reader is to read!
