November 14

We started the day by working on our writing. Kids are really excited about their stories and how they’re coming about. Next, we had gym in French.

After First Nutrition break, we looked at some ties that it happened with thousands of a second were required. It was really interesting. We also learned that a midge flaps its wings over a thousand times in a second. Then, we worked on a question about piano and wait. Also, Mr Laval came in and asked us if we would make some videos on bullying for next week’s assembly. I can’t wait to see what we come up with!

After second nutrition break we got through a lot more of the presentations. We are almost finished. Also, we read from Maniac Magee. It seems like a lot of the people in the East End do not like Maniac Magee living there.

I am still waiting for envelopes and report card discussion requests. If you have either of these would you please send them in tomorrow.

Please read for 20 minutes

We started off the day by working on are guided reading groups and are writing. We looked at trying to show, not tell the reader. We looked at an excerpt from the books Holes that we read and tried to find how Louis Sachar used his description of characters to make an image in our heads.

We also had our bus evacuation day. We watched the video and then had to jump out of the back of a bus!

After First Nutrition break, we had an activity using the fraction strips that we made. We played two different games that allowed us to examine the differences between fractions. Then, we had our read aloud. Maniac Magee hit a frog in baseball.

After second nutrition break, we worked on our presentations. We got through another whole bunch of them. We should be able to get most of them finished by the end of this week or early next week.

I will not be at school for the next two days because I am going to a technology conference in Niagara Falls. I’ll be sure to take plenty of pictures and try to update the blog and everything that I’m doing.
