Our classroom looks like something from Star Trek!! The students have been working hard on their group planet projects and should be ready to present today. My goal is that we have each group present their information today, so we can wrap up this unit before the weekend. Thanks so much for providing your child with the extra supplies they wanted to use in their projects.
We will begin a social studies unit on Monday on Canada's First Nations. The students typically enjoy this unit. It will culminate in another project, this one individual, and some of that work will need to be completed at home.
The results for the recent math test on patterning were strong overall. We are about half way through our unit on place value and will be talking about decimals next week. Check the agenda next week for a test date. If you have not returned either the science or math tests that came home in agendas, please do so. Moon logs were also due yesterday.
Our new D.A.R.E. officer, Paul Nancekivell, will be starting up the DARE program this morning. It is a wonderful program that teaches students the negative impact of alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse. It also includes a very important component about peer relationships and peer pressure that is relevant to our students. More information will come home in the backpacks on this program.
Our class is also going to be working on hosting our school's Remebrance Day assembly which will be held in the gym on November 11th. Please come if you have a chance.
Try to stay dry!
