Remember to put your name on all work before handing in to the teacher.
It was another productive and fun week two weeks ago with events such as birthdays, Meet the Teacher barbeque, the Terry Fox run and Photo Day! It was lovely to meet and reconnect with so many parents on Thursday. This week we continued with our classroom community goals and many students have committed to specific school and classroom leadership jobs and class committees. I am so excited to see where we go from here. For example, one of our students suggested we do a lesson on memes, so we will have a meme challenge soon. (see above for my first example...what message do you think I am trying to send?)
We have furthered our learning with divisibility rules and have another couple of weeks to review skills before a final unit test. Students will continue to bring home their daily Big 5 math review and weekly quiz for parents to view and sign on Mondays.
We are starting our 4th week of 100 word writes and they can be viewed on this class site under each student's fictitious name. I have modelled how to give feedback with at least one 'star' (positive comment) and one 'wish'(suggestion for improvement.
Each Friday students will also share with parents their reflection of the week and how they have integrated one of the core competencies.
The purpose is to keep parents informed of student learning, metacognition and progress.
Here is week #3 100 Word Write pick!
One day Professor Steve came into work in the animal hospital when suddenly a man dressed in a big purple coat rushed into the animal hospital. "Bob here has a cold and needs an urgent treatment As he held out a shivering crocodile, Professor Steve leaped into action. He grabbed the crocodile and ran into the back room with the man on his heel. "This will be a difficult procedure," said Steve as he pulled on his gloves. He twisted the crocodile around into an upright position and gave it a treat. Immediately it shot up and walked out waving.
All entertainment books should be returned by now.
