The grade 4,5,6 class has been working very hard on their Heritage Fair Projects. We will be starting to present the projects at the beginning of March. There have been some very interesting topics. In Science we are continuing to learn about simple machines. Our sculpting unit in art is wrapping up. Our final project has been working with paper mache. Please continue to practice basic math facts with the students. Focus on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It is very important that the students be able to know their facts with automaticity.
I can’t believe we are half way through November. We are busy working on a messages unit in ELA. We have learned a bit of sign language, a bit of Braille and have been working on listening skills. We are about to wrap up our Solar System unit. We will have a short quiz at the end. The students continue to work on math concepts. It is very important that the grade 6’s are practicing their multiplication facts so they know them. Ms. Bishop Moisan
The grade 4,5,6 class is very busy working on many items. We are almost finished the book, Pay it Forward. This has spurred some very good class discussions and I have read some very good responses. We have started a new unit about messages and how we communicate. We are almost finished our unit about the Solar System. We will be having a short quiz closer to the end of the unit.

Spring!!! We are very busy in the grade 4,5,6 classroom. We have been working very hard on some poetry and working on Book in a Box projects. I can’t wait to see their projects. In Science we have been learning about weather. In Social Studies we have been exploring the topic of government. We are beginning a music unit in art. We are hoping that the weather stays beautiful and we can start learning about some track and field. Ms. Bishop Moisan and the grade 4,5,6 class.
The grade 4,5,6 class is busy solving mysteries in ELA. We continue with our weekly spelling tests. We are going to be starting a unit about electricity in Science. In Social Studies the students have been preparing for presentations about immigrants settling in Saskatchewan. The grade 5’s and 6’s are still working on decimals and fractions in math.

The grade 4,5,6 class has been busy learning about different states of matter in science. We have made outrageous ooze as well as ice cream. We will also be making butter to see how the cream changes from one state to another. The students will be bringing home a handout about doing their own science lab. I am sure they will be great. We are about to begin a mystery unit in ELA. We will be reading some short stories to go along with it. In Social Studies, the students have been working very hard to create a country. I can’t wait to hear all about them. In Math, both the grade 5’s and 6’s will be starting a unit about decimals. Ms. Bishop Moisan and the grade 4,5,6 class
Whoosh!! Where did that month go? I hope everyone has a very restful break and enjoys some fun times with friends and family. We have started our unit about matter and the students are becoming very engaged in our experiments. In Social Studies the students have been given opportunities to explore the topic of culture. The students are just finishing up some literature circle activities in language arts. After The break, the grade 5’s and 6’s will be beginning a new unit in math about decimals. Have a great break!!
The snow has arrived! In the grade 4,5,6 room the students are just starting new units in Science and Social Studies. The grade 5’s just finished a unit in math and will be starting a new one. The new unit is multiplying and dividing of whole numbers. For all grade 5 and 6 students, I am asking that you are helping them to review their multiplication facts at home. It is a need for the students to know their facts automatically. It is much easier for them to complete their assignments.

Welcome back!! We are off to a very busy start in the grade 4,5,6 classroom. We are working on a mini unit about maps in Social Studies. In Science the students are learning about habitats and the diversity of living things. In math, the grade 5/6’s started with a unit about patterns. In ELA, we are learning about proper sentences, punctuation, and grammar. The students have been working on a variety of writing assignments as well. We have been learning about blending and shading in art and the results of the projects have been very nice.

I hope everyone had a fantastic break! The 3/4s have an exciting week ahead! We are going on a field trip to Beaver Creek on Thursday. Thanks to everyone for sending baking for our sale on Tuesday! It really helped low- er the costs of our trip. In math the 3s will be moving on from fractions to geometry and the 4s will be moving on from fractions to decimals. We will be studying soil and plants in science and learning about different countries in social studies. We would love to have your clean and empty plastic food containers to start to prepare for our out- door garden! We would like to get outside as much as possible, so we will be focus- ing on soccer skills in phys. ed. this month. The students continue to work on their stories in Writer’s Workshop and their group writing projects.
