Monday April 9

Today we learned about percents and practiced converting between fractions, decimals and percents using a hundreds grid.  We had  VIP presentation about peer pressure.  Ask your child: what are some strategies you can do if someone is pressuring you?

We started our science unit on Flight and activated our prior knowledge using Mindomo, a mind-mapping program.  Mindomo can be used to help students organize their thoughts, although it takes some getting used to :o)

At the end of the day we started our new literacy in action unit: Exploring Canada.  We previewed the unit, discussed key vocabulary and looked at some images using the prompt: what do you notice?  what do you wonder?
