Hello parents of Division 3 we are up and running our class website. We are into our 3rd week and the class is flowing nicely. We have done some reading assessments and our reading programs are starting next week. In Language Arts we have been focusing on some of the Berenstein Bears stories about returning to school and helping out around the house (class). We are focusing on correct letter formations and word families for the younger grades and an audio story/workbook for or older ones. Math has focused on some assessing with learning/reviewing ones, tens and hundreds columns. We are learning our math and language arts centres making learning fun using, dice, dominoes, word dice, ping ball ball games, … Science is focusing on forces and the students are very excited about creating our Rube Goldberg machines. Mondays we will be doing Cooking Math and Fridays we are focusing on Fun Computer Math Fridays. www.coolmath-games.com and www.explore.com and www.starfall.com are wonderful websites we have been exploring in computers class. Socials class has focused on ourselves and the emotions and feelings we experience as well as others. Well this is all new to me so I look forward to growing with you and your children as we embrace this year together.
