Students have been working very hard to represent their current level of understanding before report cards. They have brought home a collection of papers (stapled together) from math and science will be coming home next week. These are the most recent marks, taken over the last two weeks. There should be:
1-Math concept page: Students had to explain how and why we need regrouping for addition and subtraction.
1-mental math sheet where students had to work with addition
1-math problem sheet
1-Computations and math problem sheet
To support student learning at home, families can be working on addition and subtraction questions up to and from 10 000. There are many card games and apps that can be used to also support this learning. Also Such links can help as well. For example:
Next week students will begin using addition and subtraction to check their own answers. This is an important step for self-checking. Learning the relationship between how addition and subtraction weave together can increase both accuracy and efficiency for larger equations. They will also be using number lines to represent both addition and subtraction.
In science students have working really hard to apply their understanding to realistic problems focused on light and shadow. Students needed to record the concepts covered in the question, create a theory and prove their ideas using a drawing, blueprint, chart or other method.
Here are the questions they explored this week. Students were not able to complete them all so they can work on the remaining questions to build their skills.
