The Grade 4/5 class will be having a bake sale at noon on Friday, May 4th.
This weather has really convinced us that Spring is on the way! We have accomplished a lot in the last month and are keeping our momentum. We just finished up with our Novel Study Bridge to Terabithia. We had the chance to build a Bridge to help out the main character Jess get to Terabithia and had a great time using our imagination and building skills! Come check out the bridges if you get a chance!
We are learning about the History of Canada in Social Studies and are now learning about the time of the Fur Trade and Treaties. This next month is going to be an interesting adventure in all subjects. The Changing Properties of Objects in Science, The Fur Trade, The Treaties, Drama and a new novel study, Holes. We have also become little horticulturists recently; you will see results in the near future! Looking forward to seeing new and familiar faces at Parent-Teacher Interviews on the 21st and 22nd, please call the office to book an interview!
Wow, months seem to be flying by! We have kept busy in our classroom since Christmas. Our Titanic projects turned out to be a really amazing learning experience! I think I learned more than the students during this mini unit! What a blast it was! We have started a new novel study recently and are reading Bridge to Terabithia. It is a very adventurous and imaginative story that I think many of our classmates will enjoy! We are learning about Canada in Social Studies, everything from geography to Canadian stereotypes! We have an extremely curious group of kids in our class which makes our learning explore into the unknown and is taking us to places we never thought we would end up! I like to think of us as the non-magical version of The Magic School Bus.
Please feel free to stop in any time!
I am so happy to be a part of the grades 4 and 5 class this year! On the first day of school we made mini individual time capsules which contain our likes, dislikes and goals we set for the year. On the last day of school we will see if our favourite things have changed and if we have reached our goals! (and remember… they are keeping an ‘eye’ on you all year long) We started the year off by doing a lot of review in Math and ELA, just to get everyone’s brains moving again. We are doing some practice writing paragraphs in ELA and will be writing an autobiography in a couple of weeks! In Science, we are working on ways to better the environment and doing a lot of research about Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We have come up with some great ideas that we can do as a class to make a good impact on the environment! Math has started up again, and the Grade 5’s are working with Mr. Woods-Fehr while the Grade 4’s are with Ms. Rancourt. We are having a great time in our class and look forward to what is ahead! Please check out our class website (www.msrancourtsgrade45.weebly.com) where you will find what we are learning, educational games and even student work that are is in the process of being created!
Feel free to stop by anytime to see myself or the class!
