4HA Weekly News
It is great to be back at school after a wonderful Christmas holiday. I hope you all had a restful break. Considering that they had just had three weeks out of school, the children were very focused and hardworking this week. I enjoyed hearing all about what they did over the break, and their good behavior and attitude to work got 2014 off to a promising start!
We are very happy to welcome Eric Hong, our new student in 4HA! Eric is already making friends in the class and had a successful first week at SFS.
Some pictures from this week...
In reading, we continued with reading groups and focused on reading comprehension and finding information within a text.
Next week, we will learn about word types in more depth, and complete a variety of exercises to develop vocabulary and improve the quality of writing. In reading, we will focus on asking questions, and activities in the Daybook will support this.
Next week, we will conclude our Math unit, by reviewing how and when different types of charts and graphs should be used, and completing an end of unit assessment. We will continue to refine basic skills, especially mental subtraction.
