The class has settled into new routines and are eager to learn. We have started several of our units for the first term. On Thursday morning we will be going on a walking field trip to Hastings Park Pond. This will involve close observation and recording of the plants and animals in this small ecosystem. We have started the year with a basic ecology unit. In math student have become very proficient telling time, and are beginning adding and subtracting time in elapsed time problems. Spelling and journal writing have been started and students should be bringing home unit 2 words for this week.
On Friday there is a small cross country meet at Hastings Park. Students in Grade 4 will be running at 10:15. This meet is weather dependent, so we hope for good weather.
More information will be sent home next week, when we come together for the Meet the Teacher night. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me using the CONTACT ME button at the top of this page, or come to see me after class.
