In French, students are showing off their art and writing talents working on describing their monsters. Very scary!! We continue to enjoy Halloween songs which the students can practice for homework this week. We have also introduced the class Dojo to help keep students on task and listening. Ask your child to explain how it works!
In math we continue to work on addition and subtraction with and without regrouping. Students are encouraged to work on Dreambox and Xtramath every night to help improve their addition and subtraction skills.
In language we are learning about the characteristics or features of non-fiction text. Ask your child to define some of these features for you when looking at their non-fiction library book or other non-fiction books you may have in your home.
Language - Do you know that there are many people identified as Saints in the Catholic faith? In fact, a different Saint is celebrated almost every day of the year. Click this link to see which Saint is connected with your birthday.
Pick one Saint (either the one that is celebrated on your birthday or any Saint of your choosing) and write a paragraph about them. Remember to start with a good opening sentence. Include in your paragraph the Saint's name, where they were born and why they were so special. You can even include a sentence or two about whether you would have liked to meet that Saint (remember to explain why or why not)!
