Today your child should be bringing home a paper titled Weekly TV. I have asked students to make a prediction or estimate how many hours of TV they will watch over the next week and then keep track to see how many hours they actually watch. Please help your child determine the number of hours (to the nearest half hour) that they watch each day and record it on the chart. The charts will be collected next Wednesday. Thanks for supporting your child to complete this activity. We will post class results on the website next week. Below is a picture of the sheet that went home. If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear them.
We read chapter 6 of Marty Mcguire. Students recorded connections they made and also blogged about what role they would choose in the play The Frog Prince. You can read and reply to the responses here. In Math students continued with their surveys about grade 2 and 3 students. We are learning that collecting data can be tricky. Below is also a picture of our calendar. Can you identify the pattern and which attributes are changing?
Learning skills are the foundation of student acheivement. To help students become aware of their strengths and needs in this area, throughout the year we will focus on the different learning skills that are covered on student report cards. We have started with independent work. The grade 2’s and 3’s have self-assessed their skills in this area and set a goal or two to work on. They will reassess in a few weeks to see if improvements have been made.
This afternoon we had a special guest. Our community police officer, Officer V, came to talk to the class about getting along and how to deal with a Bully. The class enjoyed the presentation and learned the key message: STOP, WALK, and TALK. Ask your child to explain this to you. Officer V also showed us the many pieces of equipment she wears and answered a variety of questions from our curious audience.
To round out the day we had a few more For the Love of Reading presentations as well as some time to practise writing personal narratives. Our wall of fame is filling up! The Friday finale was music with Mrs. A.
