Here is what we did on today.
Remembrance Day Assembly
Math: Today we worked on our 6 times tables. We played circle up first to practice the numbers and then did a math worksheet.
Language: We started our lesson with our Lesson 9 Spelling Test. We continued reading our novel "The Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. We read chapter 9 now! We did a tableau activity, the students were placed in groups and had to decide on an important event that took place in the chapter. Each tableau was very well done, especially for our first one! Great job everyone!
Gym: Please see Mr. B's blog for more information.
UOI: Today we learned about animal tracking. We discussed the importance of animal tracking to the pioneers and how we are very fortunate today that we do not have to go to that extent to get food. We also talked about how it was important to know what we were tracking as to ensure that it was going to give your family enough food.As an activity, the students were separated into groups and told to follow a certain type of animal track throughout the "forest". They were placed around the school and were numbered so the students had to follow the numerical order of the tracks in order to find the animal they were looking for. They loved this activity! It was great to see them explore!
Art: To pay tribute to Remembrance Day we created poppies collages. We used texture and emphasize to drawn someone's attention to the red poppy in the middle of the black, grey and newspaper collage.
French: Please see Mme. Stella's blog for more information.
Spelling Test: Tests will be handed back on Monday
Have a good weekend!
