 5B Important info

Hello parent(s)/guardian(s),

This week has been full of activity, between the snowday on Wednesday and the skating and Valentine's Day celebrations on Thursday. In the following mini-paragraphs, I will include some important information.

There is NO SCHOOL on February 18, as it is Family Day in New Brunswick (and in most of the other provinces).

Language Arts: see homework at the bottom of the post

Math:

We continue to study fractions and decimals. Students have demonstrated increased number sense during the study and practice of skills. The homework does not reflect Math practice but the targeted outcomes can be practiced at http://sheppardsoftware.com/math.htm#decimals

http://sheppardsoftware.com/math.htm#placevalue

http://sheppardsoftware.com/math.htm#fractions

and other math sites like

https://www.coolmathgames.com/

Please continue to practice the other math operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).

Science:

Students have brought home an information sheet for parents and students that explains the STEAM science project. This project is mostly completed at home. In class, students have learned how to complete the requirements of this experiment listed in the steps 1-6 below. The steps are:

1. create/compose a question to answer

2. create an hypothesis

3. create a procedure for the experiment

4. record materials required

5. record observations (in a  table or other)

6. record the results (determined from the      observations)

7. make conclusions

All of these steps can be found on the internet; they are the universal elements of a scientific experiment that follows the scientific method.

The expectation is that students have completed a rough copy for the steps 1-6 by February 18th. Guidance will continue to be given based upon the completion of the students' responsibilities for homework. HAVE FUN WITH THIS!!!

Please view the following video for an idea about what is expected by students:

Homework:

 5B Have a safe, happy and healthy Winter Break

​WE have completed 4 of 10 months of school. Some studentts have been asking for some work to do over the Break, so I suggest that you review my teacher page entries to review some links.

Math:

We have completed the studey of Multiplication of shole numbers for now. An introduction of the simple division of numbers in the 10 times table ( with no remainder) have been presented and practiced.

Example:

24 shared 3 ways = 8

12 shared 3 ways = 4

72 shared 9 ways = 8

For students who want to get into more complicated division, you may try long-division.

Example:

273 shared 3 ways = 91

Click on the lnks below to learn some technoques to do long-division.

French:

During the month of January, we will continue to study French in an immersion setting until Frebruary. In February we will have finished half of the school year and we will begin the instruction of Language Arts, Science and Social Studies which are taught in the English language.

During the Winter Break, students are encouraged to read French books (maybe digital versions on the NB Public Libraries website, see my earlier posting about that).

English:

Happy Holidays.
