The Latest from Ms. Reid's Classroom...

December 22

We have been hard at work on many different things over the past month, including focus on our them of Generosity.  

Our work in Social Studies has been particularly interesting, as we have been collaborating with Mr. Skinner in the library, using google maps to take a look at the province and territories, as well as the capitals and major waterways.  In groups, students have been discussing and examining different environmental issues, which will then be placed on the map as well.  Students are expected to have memorized capitals and provinces - we will have a quiz the second week back from winter break.  

In Language Arts, students have been focussing on writing a summary.  We used books provided by the HDSB about indigenous history and teachings, and read them in partners.  The books were then summarized using a choice board (students could choose what their product looked like from a choice of nine options).  I was very pleased with the effort!  I think we all learned a great deal. 

In Math, we have returned to Measurement, and will be finishing up our work in Area and Perimeter in the new year.  

I hope everyone has a safe a happy holiday!
