Upcoming Events for: January 28-February 1

Dear Parents,

It was another eventful week as we planned and practiced for our Grade 4B Assembly and also participated in the all-day Sports Day events at Stanley Sports Center. Again, it was an eventful week!

Starting on Monday, January 28, we’re going to dive right back into where we left off. As you know we had to postpone our studies in preparation for the Grade 4B Assembly. Here’s the plan: We’re going to dive right into Writing by brainstorming seed ideas for our realistic fiction narratives. Seed ideas are small moments that are focused and full of details to help the reader visualize their stories. I will also reveal to students what they need to do to meet the success criteria for the units of study.

I’m going to launch the highly anticipated Design Project in Math this week. We are going to design a building or structure to help in rebuilding a community that has been devastated by a natural disaster. Students will apply their estimating, measuring, area and perimeter and comparing and ordering skills in this project. Eventually, we’ll use blueprints of our designs to recreate our structures/building using MineCraft Edu.
