Today we had time to work on our Genius Hour projects. We had french in the morning, met with our reading buddies, worked on a Father’s Day craft, worked on our jackdaws, completed a page in our Electricity Interactive Notebook and started Theme Five in Fully Alive: Living in the World.
Today we finished Theme Four for Fully Alive and discussed the importance of commitment. We went to the library and music class with Ms. Stahl. We worked on our Father’s Day craft and our social studies projects … and we attended DRUM FIT! We wrote our math test at the end of the day. Oh yes, we also took a science note on the types of energy used to create electricity.
Genius Hour tomorrow – several students are presenting!
Today we had mass and celebrated the end of the school year through prayer. We worked on review questions for math and completed an activity for Theme Four: Commitment in Fully Alive. At the end of the day we square danced!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to those students/families that were able to make it to the Multicultural Festival and represent St. Francis.
Today we worked on relating distance, average speed and time. We used what we have learned about patterning to make predictions. We completed an online electricity activity for science and made footprints for our Faith Folders. At the end of the day we worked on our jackdaws for social studies.
Today we had our Genius Hour – projects are looking great! Students met with their reading buddies and we worked on our interactive electricity notebooks. This afternoon we had a hands-on workshop all about electricity!
We have achieved our 65 “Major Points Dude” challenge. Electronics day will be next week on Friday June 15th
It would be great to see you at the Multicultural Festival on Sunday June 10th at 3:30 pm. I’ll be there with my own two children to represent St. Francis at the tent – all students and families are welcome! ( a newsletter was sent home last week regarding this event, email me for details via the contact form)
Today we had a visit from the virtual service technician from the Guelph Public library. She talked to us about digital literacy and coding and we experimented with ozobots! We started our social studies jackdaw project and concluded the day with library and starting our new science unit on electricity.
Today we improved our financial literacy through the ‘Junior Achievement’ program put on by the Royal Bank of Canada. Mr. Keith taught us about business with a focus on entrepreneurial spirit in Canada in a free enterprise system. We learned about innovations and the importance of being open to new ideas for the future!
Track and Field is tomorrow and Mrs. Gallant is helping coach. Students will have work to complete in other classrooms.
Today we practiced our ‘media literacy’ skills by analyzing a poster of Mi’kmaq peoples. We read in small group to practice our reading fluency and learn about Samuel de Champlain. We played soccer baseball ( see videos below for students who’d like a better understanding of the rules!). We made some crafts with our reading buddies. We created Decalcomania Glue Paint Symmetry Prints for art. We are feeling creative!
