Math today was using white boards to introduce multiplication. We discussed that multiplication is repeated addition. We also went over how to do an array, and how to make a story out of a multiplication problem. (I have six baskets and I have 3 cookies in each basket. How many cookies do I have? I have 18 cookies.) We then started working in our Jump Math books but I did not assign anything for homework.

During our Lang. Arts block, we usually do Spelling but this week we did Word Ladders. It is a great way to get some vocabulary building in there in a really fun way!

After recess we had PE and we played Container Ball. At the end of the class, I had to have a discussion with the class about behaviour in the change rooms and about sportsmanship. It is important to always display good sportsmanship at all times during PE.

We came back and continued on with a few rules that have to change due to some mix ups at the end of the day. After I explained things, we needed to have a bit of a break, so we played a game called Chicken Laid an Egg.

After lunch we had our last Robotics class. We will be dismantling them tomorrow.

In Science, we had our test on the respiratory system, followed by starting the Circulatory System notes and readings.

Homework:

  1. 1. French Test tomorrow #’s 21-59
  2. 2. Pro D Day on Friday
  3. 3. Virtual Book Fair – see notice!
  4. 4. Hope to see some more parents today for the Parent Teacher Interviews.
  5. Have a wonderful day! Cheers! Ms. Kneller

This morning we had Mrs. Larsen come in from HATS.
