Weekly Update & Daily Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Thank you to everyone who had a chance to come out and support our class during the Remembrance Day assembly. The presentations were very well done and presented with a respectful tone. We have yet another busy week in our classroom as we are preparing for our upcoming student lead conferences. Slips have already gone home to remind you of your date and time. Each interview is scheduled for a fifteen minute interval. If you need a reminder, please just send a note in your child's agenda. 

Here are a few things that we are working on this week in our classroom

Math- We are exploring the explicit patterning rule 
-We will be looking at different ways to solve word problems involving patterning 

Literacy- Today we started our new class novel "Ghost Ride" 
-We are working through the APE format (Answer, Prove, Extend) to respond to questions involving different reading strategies
- Students are working on a point view assignment connected to Remembrance Day in the form of a letter 
- We will be completing a summative assessment in our narrative unit -Students will be given a prompt and asked to develop a plot line

Science- We are continuing to work through our biodiversity unit -This week students will begin a mini research on one of the kingdoms
