Welcome To Our Page

   Happy Friday Boys and Girls,

   Your assignment for today looks like this;

   Read 15 minutes - strategy - keep asking yourself as you are reading, "What just happened?" or, "What's going on?" Answer in your mind.

   Writing 20 minutes -  do a persuasive piece in your journal. That is, try to persuade the reader that it is a good thing to have a pet hamster. Give as many examples as possible, of how having a hamster in the class benefits the students. Have fun with this.

   Good Morning Everyone!

   I hope you're keeping warm.

   For today; Please read Myles' letter to the class by way of the file document below.

   Read 15 minutes. The strategy for today is, "Being aware of the setting." That is, where is the story, or the article taking place? Is there a time frame? For example, time of day, time of year, a particular season? What about the location, or locations? Have fun with this. It's all part of the thought process when you read.

  Writing for today -  20 minutes. I would like you to really use your imagination today boys and girls. Pretend you are Fluffy. Fluffy is telling a story about living at Napan Elementary. All about this crazy school year. (Did you know that the heat shut off one night in our classroom? The maintenance man had to come to the rescue the next morning)  brrrr for Fluffy. But he was bundled well under the bedding, so I think he was fine. Think about all that Fluffy hears, sees, smells, tastes, and feels. Use humour, have fun, and we'll be sure to share them in class when we're together again.

   Reading comprehension - 15 minutes

   30 minutes of physical activity outside, weather permitting.

   Check your math teacher's lesson plan.

   I"m missing you all boys and girls. Have a great day!

    Good Morning Grade3/4

    It's Tuesday already. Keep up the great work that you're doing via Home Learning.

    Read 15 minutes - the focus for today can be visualizing. That is, make pictures in your mind based on what your reading. 

    Science - in science, observing and recording your observations is an important skill. Take time today to sit somewhere quietly and write all that you hear, see, and smell. Organize it into 3 lists in point form. Outside would be best, but if you can't do it outside, inside will be fine. Have fun with this.

   Reading Comprehension  - 15 minutes

   I'm going to try to get Liam's letter to the class on this web page. Please read, and if you wish to have a letter to the class posted, please let me know.

   30 minutes of outdoor activity, if possible.

   Check your math teacher's page.

   Have a great day!

  Happy Tuesday  boys and girls. 

  For today:

  Reading - 15 minutes

  Writing - In your home learning pack for this week, you will find a writing template for a Recount. You can work away at this assignment day to day, and there will be no other writing for this week.  As you know, a Recount is a form of writing where you simply tell a story about something you experienced, and you write out the events in the order that they happened, from the beginning to the end. The template is laid out in a way that each paragraph leads with a transition word, followed by a topic sentence for the paragraph, and then  two details. The when, where, what, etc. at the top of the template is turned into the introduction. Be sure to add a conclusion for the story. After the template is completed, write a good copy of your story, and be sure to edit as you are rewriting. Things to focus on when you edit are; capitals, ending punctuation, paragraphing, use of WoW words, and lots of interesting detail to create pictures in the mind of the reader. Please work independently as much as possible. The good copy can be turned in when your Learning Package is returned next week. I'm looking forward to seeing your wonderful pieces next week. 

 Reading comprehension - 15 minutes

 Outdoor physical activity - 30 minutes

 Check the teacher page of your math teacher

  Have a great day boys a girls - your teacher misses you all a great deal
