Happy Monday Families!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We are now entering Week 8 of Home Learning.  My message to you all along has been “Do What You Can, When You Can” and I sincerely mean that. It has been a trying time for all of us and it is important to look after our social and emotional well being first and foremost. So, please continue to work away at the activities the best you can! If you’d like to reach me, my email address is jodi.sobey@nbed.nb.ca send me an email and I will be in touch. Have a great week!

*Your goal for this week is to complete 5 lessons. If you complete at least 1each day and you will reach the goal at the end of the week. Remember if you begin a game, please finish it.     

Problem of the Week:

1)Estimate the length of your driveway or yard (using your own feet).  Remember, estimation means making a thoughtful guess about how many there is of something, the answer is NOT exact. When estimating we use the words “about, close to, and almost.”

2) Once you’ve written down your “estimate” go out and figure out exactly how many of your own feet it is. You will walk just like if you were walking on a tightrope. Record on your paper how many of your feet it actually took? Was your estimate close?

3) If your parent or guardian did the same thing would it take more or less feet? Explain your reasoning. 

*Students will need a toilet paper or paper towel tube and a piece cereal box cardboard for an art activity that they are going to complete on Friday! 

In addition to the activities suggested above students are encourage to read independently, participate in some physical activity and complete the task from the “Social-Emotional Learning” calendar.
