What's Trending in our Room...

It's been a while since I have updated you on what has been happening in our classroom, so I thought I would take some time to share some exciting activities we are doing in class. We continue to work on Number Sense and making sense of place value. We have our learning goal area in the classroom where we post our weekly or daily learning goals and success criteria. Ask your child what learning goals we are currently working on.

Our focus in math the last few days has been to really build our understanding of the place value system and to look for patterns. Today we were inquiring about what a base ten block might look like for 10 000 and 100 000. Take a look at the student thinking and their understanding of numbers to 100 000. It is important that students continue to practice writing and reading numbers in real life situations over 1000.

In language we have been commenting with our blog partners and we also have another class that joined our blog challenge. We welcome Mr. Pouliot's grade 6 class who will also be commenting on our students blog challenges. We look forward to hearing all the feedback and way to bump up our work. We have also started our indepth study of descriptive writing. We begun with describing one item that was inspirational to us. We heard some great descriptive language being used. Stay tuned to hear about some Christmas activities coming up!
