Math

We are learning about double digit adding. 

Writer's Workshop - Personal Narrative

We have been exploring the many details behind creating a personal narrative. Using the writing process of prewriting, drafting, editing, revising, and publishing we will be writing details about an event that has happened in our life. 

Creation Studies

We have started a new unit learning about the many animals in God's world. We are focusing on the caribou and creating our own books to demonstrate our knowledge. 

Bible

Psalms and Proverbs. The Book of Psalms is a collection of poetry written by God's people. King David wrote many of the Psalms. God's people wrote Psalms to offer adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication. The Book of Proverbs contains wise sayings and words of advice. Solomon wrote many of the proverbs. Proverbs tell us about our relationship with God, others, and ourselves.   

Working with Words

Students have the opportunity to work on their phonics skills and learn their word wall words through the active working with words centres. Students will be given the choice to pick what centre they would like to work on. The types of activities include playing around with letters to make words, practicing phonics skills, and learning our word wall words. 

Work on Writing

Students have the opportunity to write about what interests them the most. Students may choose to write about any of the writing genres we have explored already or write about any story of their choice. This allows students to feel like they have choice and control of their own writing. Students also have the opportunity to use their creativity and imaginations.

Brain Breaks

Taking breaks from school work is vital for our brain energy. We often take breaks from schoolwork and get moving so that our brains can work hard again. Physical activities are common as well as stretching and hand movement exercises so that we can activate both sides of the brain.
