Mme Inions' class
Where has April gone?
In Math, we have completed the geometry unit and have nearly wrapped up our learning of addition and subtraction to 1000. Once we have completed our final assessment of addition and subtraction, students will be moving onto measurement! This unit is always really fun and definitely a favourite as it offers many hands-on activities.
Finally, in science we have finished our building and testing unit. The egg drop activity was the final project and it was a hit! It was so fun to count down and watch the egg crates fall from the roof ! Luckily, we only had a few casualties and most eggs survived their fall.
In French Language Arts, we are still working on our "Growing up" unit. I expect to be done shortly and we will be moving onto our next unit: The wonders of technology! IT should be great fun!
In Math, we will begin our measurement unit. Students will be learning about units of measurement by using standard (meters and centimeters) and nonstandard (hands, toothpicks, paperclips etc. ) we will also be working with the measurement of time. This unit should only take a few weeks. Then, we are moving onto Multiplication and division... a class favourite!
In Social Studies, students are working on an independent research project. They have selected a country of study and must discuss and present the following information: climate, natural resources, water sources, atmosphere (air quality), and the physical geography of the country. These projects will be available for you to see next week during student leds.
We are beginning our new unit in Science. We will be learning about Animal life cycles. Throughout this unit, we will be observing our very own classroom butterflies! Our order will arrive in May and we will have the privilege of watching the various stages of a butterfly's life cycle in the classroom!
In English Language Arts, we will be working on another novel study! I haven't selected the story yet but will be sure to update everyone as soon as I have made my selection. I absolutely love that the kids enjoy reading and have been asking to read another chapter book!
Look at the fun we've been having!
