Today we finished our Waste Free Lunch posters, finished up our science experiments ( if they were late ), and worked on our Genius Hour projects. We met with our buddies to create a Multicultural book for the One World Living Together festival held at Riverside Park June 8-10. Look for it in one of the tents! At the end of the day we completed a Three Act math question and wrote a probability diagnostic assessment.
Today we worked on Mission #4 for Planet Protectors. Students are encouraged to bring a WASTE FREE, LITTERLESS lunch tomorrow. We wrote our math test. We ‘brought the library to us’ today due to the weather. Thanks to Jen Lisso, the virtual technician at the Guelph Library. Ask you child about what they learned today! All they need is a Guelph Library card to access all the awesome features of the Guelph Library.
Bring a waste free lunch tomorrow! The CHALLENGE is ON! The team that has the most waste free lunches gets points!
Science Experimental write-up due tomorrow – some students experienced difficulty conducting the experiment at school so they may need to do so at home. Click here for assignment guidelines. ( we completed the group investigation together as a class ). Any issues – bring a parent note to avoid being marked ‘late’.
Today we reviewed the learning goal and success criteria for our flight experiments and students started their research to develop their question for investigation. We played a new game, ” sabakiball” in Phys. Ed. We had our “Electronics” class reward time, and Mrs. Gallant met with individual students to review their word work assessments and math check-ins.
sabaki (体捌き) is a term from Japanese martial arts and which relates to ‘whole body movement’, or repositioning. It can be translated as body-management
Today we worked on our Genius Hour projects and a few students helped make a beehive for the play. We conducted our science experiment and students learned how much writing and analysis the scientific method requires. We wrote a check in for math about ratios and learned about rates.
Electronics Day class reward tomorrow for Major Points Dude
Today we had a teacher directed lesson on ratios and equivalent ratios. We made our punch ( see below! ), started our paper airplane experiment, went to the library and read independently while Mrs. Gallant worked with small groups to practice reading fluency.
I was able to find most of the ingredients … at a reasonable cost … except for the elusive orange sherbet! I went to two different grocery stores and they only carried mango, rainbow and lime so I decided to go with the rainbow one as it had some orange in the picture.
I wasn’t quite sure about the frozen juice from concentrate, was it a better deal to buy three of something for five dollars and save 67 cents when I really only wanted two? They didn’t sell orange juice in the store brand, only orange punch for 77 cents …
Today we found out that we are getting a new student in Room 202! We wrote him some welcome letters. We reviewed yesterday’s math through partner presentations, met with our reading buddies, played a “flying pig” game, had our Word Work test and completed Mathletics and Daily Five Activities. Mrs. Gallant also learned a new word “yeet”
