Reading - We have continued to work on developing our reading strategies and on building our reading stamina. We discussed how the brain is a muscle than must be exercised so practice, practice, practice!
Writing - We have been working on finishing up our Newspapers about ourselves complete with story, cartoon and hero talk.
Math - Our focus has been on using t-tables and models to demonstrate how patterns can change and on stating the rule for each pattern.
Science - Our focus has been on understanding what makes habitats different from one another. We have also just begun looking at adaptations in organisms and how thoe adaptations help them meet their basic needs.
Socials - The class has been reviewing vocabulary from our first chapter which has focused on understanding that information can come from lots of sources and that we need to watch for bias and stereotyping when gathering information, watching television, or searching the internet.
Health and Careers - This week we discussed our role as the schools management team and the jobs that that position entails. A schedule was made up of partners who will handle various tasks around the school to help keep it running smoothly.
Art - We have just completed our line and shape drawing of St. Basil's Cathedral. Next week I am hoping to have the class begin a textiles project.
PE - We have continued our ongoing work on playing safe and following rules and today completed our Terry Fox Run. Well done!
