Welcome back to Mike Mountain Horse after what I hope was a restful and relaxing Winter Break!
Our Grade 4 students get right back to work editing and publishing their original fiction compositions (which have come so far), and simple machines creations and presentations. We are beginning a new round of Words Their Way, and soon we are launching new units in Reading and Writing Workshop (Informational). Our focus in mathematics is on the Shape and Space strand, which is made up of units on measurement (e.g. area and time), 2-D shapes and 3-D objects, as well as transformational geometry. In Science, we will soon begin building devices and vehicles that move. In Social Studies, we continue examining Alberta, its regions, and the Indigenous peoples, their stories and traditions, and our shared history and legacy of the residential school system.
Thanks again to everyone for contributing to the Humane Society in lieu of classroom gifts. Thank you for all your support and everything you do as parents. Looking forward to a wonderful 2019!
