I hope everyone was able to spend time with their families this past long weekend. Here is some information for the upcoming week:
1. There will be no new spelling words this week. On Friday we will have our first unit test which will include twenty-five words from our first five spelling lists (no 'Challenge Words' included). We will be reviewing the words in class this week prior to the test.
2. In Mathematics, we will continue to work on developing strategies for four digit addition. We will also begin to examine techniques for estimating differences (estimating when subtracting three and four digit numbers). Parents who wish to complete extra practice at home can look at Lesson #7 and Lesson #8 on Unit#2 (Whole Numbers) here: http://www.sacredheartacademy.ca/documents/general/math%20makes%20sense%20homework%20book.pdf
We will also be having our first math quiz this Thursday. It will include questions on representing numbers in different ways (standard form, expanded form, written form, with pictures, etc), ordering and comparing numbers (sequencing and using Venn diagrams) and problems around estimating and adding three and four digit numbers.
3. This week in Science we are continuing to make observations around our Tomatosphere plant experiment and students are completing their non-fiction Google Slide book around a plant of their choosing.
4. In Social Studies we will be using mapping techniques to map the regions of Alberta.
