We started our day with self-selected reading. After that we took a look at the book binder. Many kids will start buying their books tomorrow. Also, we had Jim and French.
After First Nutrition break, we worked on a math minute. Then, We looked at equivalent fractions. I was a little disappointed in how many kids had trouble in the probability question that was pictured yesterday. We went over how we could answer this question and then redid the answers from the same question. After that, we continue to watch our movie Hoot and compared it to how the book represented the characters.

After second nutrition break, we started to look at the different native tribes of Canada. We talked about how geography affected close, homes, and governance of the different tribes. We started look at the devastating effect that the European settlers had on these proud tribes. Sometime next week, we’ll be assigning different tribes from across Canada and discover how the geography affected many different aspects of their life.
