We showed our school spirit today with lots of animal ears, nose and whiskers 🙂 More importantly, our class was so excited to collect donations and new treats and toys for the animals in care at our local Humane Society, the Hamilton – Burlington S.P.C.A.. Wow! Rousseau really pays it forward again! More information on the school’s generosity will be coming up on a post of Rousseau Ramblings!
Here are Dea and Elizabeth, our student leaders for the S.P.C.A. fundraiser, posing with all of the item donations Rousseau families have donated! Wow!! We look forward to finding out how much money was donated by students. The school’s generosity is fantastic!
DRAMA/DANCE (with Mrs. Crocker)
** Multuplication Test on Thursday **
Our focus is on using several strategies to solve problems involving multiplication (2 digit x 2 digit for grade 5; up to 4 digit x 2 digit for grade 6). Grade 6 worked in responding to feedback from yesterday’s multiplication word problems.
Grade 5 students began to see the relationship between our previous strategies (which use place value/expanded form) and the Standard Algorithm
LITERACY – Writing Speeches
We are working towards having our rough drafts finished next Monday. Students are working at various stages, writing down their back ground knowledge & new knowledge gleaned from documentaries & interviews (Grade 5) and all of the above plus reading research for Grade 6.
For our Spirit Day in support of the S.P.C.A., we made various animal masks with our Grade 1 & 2 buddies in Mrs. Knight and Mr. Lees classes.
We love to dance during indoor play times!
