Math – Today, both grades have begun reviewing concepts that we have covered throughout the year in order to freshen up our skill set before the summer months come. This review is of even greater importance for the grade 6 students who will be having a year-end math assessment on June 7th and 8th. We will be looking at a curriculum outcome a day from now until the end of the school year.

Language Arts – The grade 6 students completed an example of a reading comprehension activity that will be offered in the grade 6 language arts assessment beginning next week. More information on this assessment will arrive home this week so be on the lookout for this please.

Math, Language Arts Update

Math Grade 5 – We have started a unit on collecting data and interpreting graphs. We will then be working on translations, rotations, and reflections with 2-D shapes. There doesn’t tend to be much homework with this unit but as we move more into the middle of May, I will be beginning a thorough review of all concepts studied this year. There then may be some review work appearing at home during that time.

Language Arts – We are halfway through the novel “The Great Gilly Hopkins”. Students have completed four chapters of comprehension activities, and the marks have been sent to their school Gmail accounts. They can pass on these results to parents. In writing, a few students are finishing up the persuasive essays, and I have begun marking them. When they are all corrected, they will be sent home for parents to sign.

Just dropping a note to get everyone up to speed on what’s happening in class.

Math Grade 5 – Students will have a test on Thursday on  “Patterns and Equations”. We are in the process of correcting exercises from the duotang sheets, and I’ll begin a  unit review tomorrow. Included in this test is the foundational outcome of solving single-variable one-step equations.

Math Grade 6 – Students will have a test on Thursday on order of operations, balancing equations, drawing triangles and quadrilaterals and solving for missing angles for both types of polygons.

In writing, students are working to complete persuasive essays and they will be marked and sent home once everyone has submitted their work.

A note also went home today concerning fundraising activities that will be occurring at the school this week for Easter Seals.
