Students are reviewing double digit multiplication without decimals and then with decimals. We are preparing for our Geometry Unit (Shape and Space strand). This unit will begin with a review of perimeter and area of rectangles before moving on to other shapes including triangles and circles.
Assignments are found on Teams. (paper copies handed out in class)
Be sure to practice your times tables up to 12x12. Knowing these are very important if you want to be able to complete your assignments in a timely manner.
Students were given a list of all outstanding work today. Please be sure to hand this in by Friday. (Case Report for EW3 plus Journal Entries) See Teams Assignments for additional details.

Happy Victoria Day
Long Weekend! Joyeuse longue fin de semaine tout le monde!
WELLNESS: KEEP PRACTICING YOUR BREATHING! Being mindful
about how we feel during our day is important so that we can best help
ourselves in feeling well. Get outside if you feel a bit blue; or go for a
brisk walk if you feel a burst of energy; or if you feel tired or unsure, being
gentle with yourself. Taking breaks and having
empathy for others can also help us to keep our emotional health in check while
being mindful of others. So … Breathe in, pause, breathe out, very slowly,
letting it go twice as slowly as you inhaled. Try this a few times. Then let
your natural breath take over and rest in easeful peace and quiet for many
times in your day – and feel more ready to get on with your day 😊
Stay well, mes amis <3
“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.” ― Stephen Hawking.

Youth Science Canada is launching
an online STEM event. Let your
creativity run wild and share innovative ideas with the world remotely à https://youthscience.ca/
Not sure what to do? Need an idea? à Brainstorm
Once you have a MAIN IDEA à ASK à What is a question
that you can pose about this idea? Maybe try to get 2-3 questions going and
then decide on one. THIS is your research question that you will
aim to answer or explain in your work
If you are STILL stuck for an idea, maybe
contemplate our biggest, collective challenge right now à Think about and share how
or what you may change to help our communities, our climate and
environment, or ourselves due to the pandemic we are all experiencing
