Parts of a Plant Quiz

Students have been learning about the parts of a plant and their function. Everyone is going home today with a little booklet that they made today in class that labels a plant and describes their functions. They can use this to study for this short quiz on Monday, Sept 25.

Our learning of plants will still continue!

Weekly Update

Hello families,

​I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend and was able to partake in some of the great Harvest activities downtown! Below are a few reminders and homework items for this week:

  • I will be sending home some French reading books along with some tips and tricks for support your child at home. Ideally, students should be reading 10-15 minutes/night or 60 minutes per week. However, some students may need to ease into the routine to build up stamina.
  • We worked on the sound 'ou' last week and will be working with the sound 'o' this week. You can ask your child to identify words with these sounds while reading.
  • I am also sending home two lists of high-frequency words. These are words your child should easily be able to read and spell. The first list is words from grade 3, and the second is words from grade 4. As a part of your home reading time, you may choose to practice the high frequency words that are not automatic for your child to read or that they have trouble spelling. I would reccomend only focusing on the grade 3  list for now as they are likely unfamiliar with many of the grade 4 words. If you are unsure of the pronounciation of any of the high-frequency words, you may type them in and listen to them on the Larousse French Dictionary website: http://www.larousse.fr/dictionnaires/francais
  • This past week we began the Patters and Relations unit in flexile math groups. You should be receiving a letter early this week with the outcomes being covered in your child's math group.
  • A reminder that our annual DFS fundraiser is still underway for another week. All order forms should be submitted to the school by Monday. September 25th. 
  • Elections for Student Council class representatives will be held this week. Students interested in campaigning will be asked to prepare a short speech for Friday explaining why they would be a good choice to represent our class.
  • Friday we will be visiting the Martime Honey Festival at the Capital Exhibition Centre. Please see previous post for our agenda for the morning.
Upcoming dates:
  • ​September 26th is a half-day for students due to Professional Learning in the afternoon
Have a great week!
