Walking in our character's footsteps
What Frog said or did, what it tells us about him
We asked deep questions before, during and after reading
We asked Before, During & After questions about our own books
in Writing.......Show, Don't Tell
'My head felt like it would explode'
I was mad!
'Her mood was quiet and she was frowning'
She was sad!
'Her breathing was fast and her teeth were chattering'
She was scared!
Science Unit on Weather
Explore Weather on MYON.....
Mrs. Gellatly in the Elementary library has made a book list of 20 books on weather and seasons on Myon. Students can find them in Myon under Teacher's List. Usernames are made up of the year of graduation, initial and surname eg 25schung and they all have the same password, 123456. This is a great opportunity to reinforce non-fiction reading in conjunction with our current Science Unit on Weather.
Please encourage your children to practice the Maths concepts we have taught in class on IXL at home; Usernames will always be the child's first name, child's last name, 63 (no spaces), like marymulqueen63, password is dragon.
Ongoing Extension at home....
- Please wait until Wednesday to complete Math homework as we often have not completed teaching the Math points until then.
- Practice 'Accountable talk' with your family during dinner.
- Be a Math Hero - know all the combinations to 20 by heart! Play Close to 20 game.
- How many different ways can you show the number that is today's date? (standard form, expanded form, word form...)
