Tuesday April 5, 2016
Good afternoon parents,
This morning after the assembly, Sofia led us in our calendar activities.
Students then enjoyed 15 minutes of sustained reading.
We then had our math lesson on the carpet.  Today was an extension of our Numeration unit.  Students learned through many hands-on demonstrations and hands-on practice to solve subtracting two-digit numbers using inverted strategies.  This is a difficult concept and we will continue practicing tomorrow.
After a well deserved snack and recess, I continued with our read aloud story.
Students then completed their preassessment for their third term OWA (Ontario Writing Assessment).
Next it was time for library book exchange and then lunch.
Students then enjoyed music and French with Mr. Hunt.
After last recess it was time for French with Mme.

Reminders: hockey trip is on Thursday!  Be sure to fill in waivers sent home tonight (with the oldest in family)
