Miss Rankin leading our class in a song! Lots of classes performed & parents enjoyed a tea with treats!
Rohan’s Dad came to teach us Salsa dancing!
we’re working on developing our ideas in our writing. We’re pretty good at finding main ideas but we need to support it with a different explanation, personal opinion, an example, research or fax or other opinions, and personal connections.
We can include words like respect in our letters to Mr. Frank Taylor, a 93-year-old veteran in Guelph Ontario who was robbed last week. But do we know what respect is. How do we know when we feel respect?
– when we respect a veteran we wouldn’t just say hi Frank. We would say hello Mr. Taylor and we would even shake his hand
Respect is earned:
– Mr. Taylor earned respect by serving our country and doing brave things.
– other service people did jobs like cooling and cleaning – their lives were at risk too and we respect them the same as a soldier in a battlefield
We came up with scenarios where the majority of people do not want a particular political party, but that party still “wins” the election because they secure more votes than any other party.
Just some of the political parties we researched in groups. This helped us to understand the different issues that government can be interested in. We also had a student vote today in Mr. Obermeyer’s. All students in grades 3,4,5 & 6 participated. We will find out the “election” results soon!
Good luck to our 5F students who will be running for student council on Thursday!
