Homework for the week of jan 14 to 19 inclusive

YIPPEE!!

Grade 4 and 5 have a super simple week of homework.

Both grades must do xtramath this week for multiplication practice.

Both grades will only have homework if something has not been finished in class.

Math patterning is likely to be the only homework  IF a student has not finished the pages for today. The pages will be marked the next day so parents please do not give answers to your little darling.

ALL WORK MUST BE BROUGHT TO CLASS EACH DAY SO IT CAN BE MARKED.

HOMEWORK FOR THIS WEEK JANUARY 2019!

Grade 4's xtramath (only)

Grade 5's have until Friday to work in their math notebook to complete any work in measurement; perimeter and area. This work was not completed in end of November and December. As a class we are going to work on our next unit starting on Tuesday of this week in Patterning. I will attempt to put examples of patterning tasks/expectations on blog each week so that parents know what we are working on. Some parents have requested that we have examples so that they can better work with their child.

Grade 4`s please make certain that you have created a Google Doc named, `Password``. In that doc you should list all of your passwords for email, xtramath, Kidblog etc. I will check it out tomorrow.

Students are to use their homework notebooks which are in their homework duotang for this practice work.


Patterning Example: Create a growing pattern. Make the number 36 one of the first five numbers in your pattern. What will the 10th number in your pattern be? What is …

Merry Christmas and Happy 2019!

Homework for the week of December 17 to 21 inclusive

HOLES BOOK REPORT CAN BE DONE TODAY AT HOME. PARENTS PLEASE DO NOT HELP YOUR CHILD WITH THE EXCEPTION OF EDITING SPELLING/


Dear Parents,
Please be aware that the second of two measurement tests are coming home today for the Grade 5 students for your signature. Almost all students improved in the retest. The better of the two marks will be used for the report card mark. For homework this week please encourage your child to work on xtramath. Also, in preparation of their book report which they are completing at school this week, please discuss the book HOLES with your child as a way to draw out key events. Ask questions like; Who are the main characters. Describe them to me.
What happens in the book?
Why is Stanley in Camp Green Lake?
Why are they digging holes?
Does Stanley have friends or family outside of camp Green Lake?


homework for the week of December 10 - 14

Grade 4 and 5 students need to memorize their Christmas Carol. Please find the previous blog post with the words and music to the two grade level songs. Please memorize the two verses each night this week!

Grade 5 students who are not yet finished to book Holes must finish as the book report is due on Friday of this week. We have been reading this book for over a month. I will extend the due date for all students but need for all books to be completed. There are three Grade 5 students who are not yet finished! I can't wait to hear your reaction of the book!

xtrmath should be continued for all children this week. One student in Grade 5 asked if we could try to aim for a 75 minute free time on Friday, but we all need to participate and therefore we all need to do xtramath this week and have our book finished.

The Angel Gabriel
Gr. 4

The angel Gabriel from heaven came,
His wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame;
 “All hail,” said he, “thou lowly maiden Mary,
most highly favoured lady,” Gl----------oria!

 “For know a blessed Mother thou shalt be,
all generations laud and honour thee,
thy son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold,
most highly favoured lady,” Gl---------oria!

Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head,
 “To me be as it pleaseth God,” She said,
 “my soul shall laud and magnify His holy Name.”
Most highly favoured lady,” Gl---------oria!

Of her, Emmanuel, the Christ, was born
In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn,
And Christian folk throughout the world will ever say
 “Most highly favoured lady,” Gl-------oria!

We Three Kings - Gr. 5

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar,
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.

Ô; étoile de la nu…
