Dear Parents


Spelling:  Students wrote their spelling quiz (lesson 13-17), and they marked each other's work. We will do the review exercises next week insha-Allah as we had to go to attend the MS-readathon assembly in the gym. There will be no spelling test next Monday as we covered the review lessons this week.

Math: Students completed page 39 in their math books where they wrote two doubles facts to help them find the sums.

Science: We started to learn about liquids. We talked about how we distinguish between solids and  liquids. To show the concept, we did an experiment where wooden blocks were placed in a clear plastic glass and coloured water was poured into a second glass. The two were compared to show that a liquid will fill the bottom of a container, while a solid will leave space. The water was then poured into a different glass to show the concept that a liquid will take the shape of whatever container it is in. We then documented this knowledge by drawing the containers, containing both the blocks and the water, and by answering a few questions.

Gym: We played Freeze Tag.

  • Tomorrow is Toonie Tuesday.
  • On Wednesday we are making fruit kababs for health class.Please send a sliced fruit along with your child,( The options are strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, cantaloupe, banana).
