Grade 4 & 5 Linden School

Your opinion matters

Homework

April13

Hi Everyone,

So we are back in the thick of it now.  We have a few assignments due soon, one on the 16th April and the other on the 23rd April.  Click here for more details.

Also, the students have their two most recent timetables challenges in their homework folders.  Every second day we do a short timed challenge.  The ones they get wrong, are the tables they need to work on.  

Also, next week we are starting a new in-class social studies project.  There will be some small elements to do from home, but most of this will be done at school.  All that needs to be done at this time, is to choose a social/environmental issue that is particularly important to you.

March Break

March6

So what’s the go for March Break?  Essentially, read your novel, that you chose.  Remember your novel needs to have a message.  Some great examples are books such as, ‘The Breadwinner’ or ‘Wonder’.  You need to have this book read by Monday, 26th March.

Also, you can start working on your ‘Rants’.  This is due on the 4th April.  Whilst this seems a long time from now, I would suggest putting some thought and work into it.

Click here to find out what it is

Don’t forget to work on learning your timetables.  Concentrate on the ones that don’t come easily to you.

The times tables challenge will be up and running when we get back.  Here are some of the ones that many of you have trouble with:

8×6=48

8×8=64

7×8=56

8×4+32

7×6=42

7×7=49

9×6=54

8×12=96

Learn these and you will be a math wiz.  Try playing Millionaire math at home.  Click here for the link.

Have a wonderful March break.  Rest, recuperate and most of all have fun!

Canadian Currency

January10

Yesterday in class we were examining Canadian money.  We explored the various Canadian icons found on our notes and coins, like the Bluenose schooner and loons.  This examination included the Queen and some other significant people.  We learned about who these people were and why they are deemed important enough to be on our currency.

But choosing people to represent our nation can be controversial.  For this reason I gave the class the opportunity to voluntarily find out why the $10 note has been in the media lately.  Two students (Penguin and Storm) took up the challenge and presented their findings this morning.  Click here to see what Penguin discovered.

Extension Granted: Project due Monday 18th December at the latest

All the class are working very hard to complete their social studies projects.  Most students need to work on them at home.

Click here for all the criteria 

Last week one of the grade 4 students already presented a completed project, on ancient Egypt and what an amazing job she did.  Her project was part poster board and part slide show.  She addressed all the criteria and her research is impeccable.

Do a great job, the bar has been set very high!

Social Justice Data Fair

November23

What a great morning!  After all our hard work, our projects for the social justice data fair were fantastic.  Thank you so much to the parents who came to check them out.

I promised the class if they worked really hard (which they did) and if they completed their passports to an exemplary level, then we could have a pie party on Monday.  Well the verdict is; looks like we are having a pie party on Monday.  Students are welcome to bring a pie along and I will bring a couple too.  If you have any suggestions for the type of pie, then leave me a comment.

Have a wonderful weekend.
