    • MATH

      Multiplication Madness: Chocolate Bar Challenge:
      Challenge is to complete 100 multiplication facts in 3 mins or less

      **If you need more practice, make sure to ask!!

      Current Checklist: Decimals - Perimeter and Area:

      Students will work at either a basic, intermediate or advanced level to help them build confidence and the skills they need to move forward and experience success in math. Checklists are completed in class using a variety of resources including BrainPop. 

      I regularly have practice and study sheets for students. They are responsibly for bringing them home and completing them on their own time. These are not for homework but rather extra practice so they have an opportunity to master math concepts. 


      Language Arts will be integrated into our Social Studies unit on Ancient Civilizations! 


      We are starting our final social studies unit on Ancient Civilizations. Students need to choose one ancient civilization - Rome, Greece, Mesopotamia, China, Inca, Maya, Aztec, Egypt etc... Through on-line research and in-class structured mini lessons students will use a shared (Google Classroom) template to gather information and notes. Later in the unit students will have an opportunity to choose one aspect of the civilization they want to explore further and present to peers and parents. 

      • SCIENCE

        Using our interactive notebook, we will be examining different ideas and theories and then reflecting on our thinking.

        We are currently working on a chemistry unit. Mr. Sum will be starting a 7 lesson unit with hands-on experiments.
