Nov. 5 & 6 — Math, Literacy/Poppy Campaign

MATH

We will be continuing with our Data Management unit for the next week (scatter plots, bar & circle graphs; surveys). However, we have added some daily Number Sense practice each day. Regardless of the “main” unit we work on throughout this year, we will always do a bit of Number Sense each day. 🙂

Our Number Sense focus is currently multiplication strategies — with a bit of pre-algebra (finding missing numbers). SEE BELOW. Students have spent several years learning multiplication strategies, and many students do have their multiplication facts memorized at this point. Students can all practice memorizing & reviewing multiplication facts daily at home (up to 12 x 12).

LITERACY/ REMEMBRANCE DAY – Poppy Campaign

Students have shown great empathy & compassion for our Veterans by visiting classrooms and presenting the reasons why Rousseau students might wish to donate to the Royal Canadian Legion “Poppy Campaign”. We are learning context for this giving, by researching in groups the history of the Boer War, WWI, WWII, the Korean War and current Canadian involvement in conflicts in other countries.  We focused on the “HISTORY” section at this Government link: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/information-for/students

Nov. 5/2018

Today, focus on the History subtitle. Read about your assigned time period/war and navigate through its links. Be careful to  go “back”  rather than navigate away from your time period. 🙂
