After a few no bus days, we are quickly catching up on our work.
In math students have been working on various ways to multiply larger numbers. It is important for students to have more than one strategy and to be able to rely on a strategy to get them the correct answer. Ask your child to show you the array box "way" to multiply. Next we will work on division of larger numbers and will again look at various strategies beyond the traditional "long division" process.
Students are ready to share their circuit board games and seem to have enjoyed putting their learning to practice to create these board games with electronic devices! Since the materials are from my electricity bin, games will be dissembled tomorrow after we "play".
Tomorrow is also our annual East Gary dance-a-thon. The theme is spring and we are hoping to raise some money for our World Vision child, Smith. Students are asked to bring a small donation such as a twoonie.
Our next Social Studies unit is Canada's Trading Partners, which we will begin right after March Break.
Students should be finalizing their persuasuve book talks over the break and be ready to present during the week of March 19th.
Thanks to those parents who have returned all the work needing signatures lately. If you have not done this, please check the agenda to see what your child needs to have signed and returned.
Swimming starts the last Monday in March. Please send the form and $45 in as soon as you can.
Have a wonderful March Break and enjoy, especially if you have the opportunity to get away!
