Homework

Bonne et Heureuse Année!

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. I would like to thank you for the thoughtful gifts!  The last few days of school was crazy busy, I did not get a chance to write a thank you note to everyone.  So sorry.

We are going to start the new year with our second Science unit:  Light and Sound in Grade 4.  


In December, we were very busy with our Social Studies unit Physical and Political Regions of Canada.  We labelled a map with the provinces and territories, another with the capital cities and finally one with the physical regions of Canada. We also reviewed each individual physical regions to get a feel of each region and the differences between them.  Finally, the students were busy creating a slideshow on a province or territory.

At this time, I would like to introduce some homework.  For those interested, my suggestions are up!! Check them out under Homework on the right hand side of our blog.

Thank you for your continued support

We are now working on our good copy for the animal projects.  They should be done soon!  I have added sentences under the lecture tab Habitats et Communautés for the students to practise at home.  We will also practise in class.  I will sit down with them on Monday, November 20th to listen to them read.

We are wrapping up our Habitat and Communities unit with an animal project.  The students had to choose an animal and research information on it.  Information such as description, habitat,  food  & type of animal, adaptations, food chain and predators.  Once they have the information, they will use the class examples to write their information into sentences.
In the meantime, we have been busy with our 1st Social Studies unit Physical and  Political Regions of Canada.  So far we have labelled a map with the provinces/territories and the capital city.

We continue with our Habitat and Communities unit.  We have practiced building food chains ( and included some French sentence structures )

e.g.  Le lapin mange la carotte.  
        La carotte est mangé par le lapin.




and we learned about adaptations;  physical traits and actions that allow animals to survive in their habitat.  Here is the link to a video we watched: Animal Adaptations
