I hope everyone has a safe and fun time tonight with whatever festivities you celebrate. We did some descriptive writing about pumpkins today, and some perspective drawings with them. Thank you to everyone who donated a pumpkin for us to use today. It was great to see so many different shaped pumpkins.
***One of our students is missing their black, oshgosh snowpants. Can you please check if your child has black oshgosh snowpants that they didn't accidently bring home the wrong pair or an extra pair. Thank you.
In math students have been focusing on patterning. Specifically showing increasing patterns and writing pattern rules about them. In science this week we explored some websites that compare forces by showing squeezing, stretching, bending, sliding and twisting. We also compared materials by testing if they are waterproof, transparent, flexible and strong.
In social studies we learned about Diwali, this year Diwali was celebrated on October 27th. We watched a few videos about Diwali and completed a sheet to show our understanding. We also learned about Day of the Dead celebrated in Latin America which includes Mexico and Peru. We created some sugar skull art to represent what we learned about day of the dead.
We have our first field trip on November 20th. If you are able to volunteer for the field trip please send me an email. We will be going to the Telus Spark Science Centre.
Have a wonderful day.
