LITERACY
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!
