Day 56

Good evening,

Calendar: Today’s calendar was led by Sianna. Great job Sianna!

Phonics: Today, the students were introduced to the Long “Ee/Ea” sound, action and song. Students watched two videos called “Geraldine learns the /ee/ sound” and “Geraldine learns the /ea/ sound.” Students brainstormed a list of words that contain this sound.

French: Please see Mlle. Jessica’s blog for more information.

Museum: We visited the Grade 5 Museum of Ancient Civilizations. We learned a lot from both exhibits, and were able to ask lots of questions.

Lunch/ Recess 1

Journals: Students created entries that started with “At the museum…” and used their senses to describe what they saw and heard, and the artifacts that they were able to touch.

Math: Today students reviewed how to construct bar graphs, and to find the total for each column. Students are recalling that they start filling in the graph at the bottom, and how to determine which choice is more or less popular. Students also practiced sorting and classifying, by adding objects to a group, or by deciding which object does not belong. It is important for students to continue to identify the sorting rule when looking at a group of objects.

Lunch/ Recess 2

Gym: Please see Mrs. Jan’s blog for more information.
