4/5M March Newsletter
Math- In math both grades are continuing with learning decimals and how they relate to fractions. We will be learning about money and understanding how to read a calendar. Please continue with basic fact at home; adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.
Language Arts- We will be working on how to write a persuasive piece and correct formatting of an essay. These are skills they need in highschool and beyond. In class, we continue to focus on guided reading and spelling.
Science- We are finishing up both grade 4 and 5 science units ( Chemistry and Wheels and Levers).
Social Studies- The grade 4’s are learning about the history of Alberta and how history has influenced many things we have around even today. The grade 5’s are working on the history of Canada and the influences the early settlers had on the development of Canada.
Health- We are talking about home safety and a sheet will be going home to see what guardians expectations are when home alone and if they know their own address and phone numbers.
