Weekly Homework

Below is the note that was shared in the April Homework.  Please encourage your child to complete their homework each week! 

We are about eight weeks away from EQAO testing so we have increased the number of homework questions each week during the month of April and the first few weeks of May.  Not only is this a great review before testing, these questions help to build on and reinforce the skills and content learned this year. Finally, this practice is also helping to  prepare our grade 3 friends for grade 4! We strongly recommend that students complete the math and writing tasks assigned.

Friday Fun!

We earned a pj reward this week and we came up with some great math problems using squares of chocolate.  Students created problems using different operations (x,+), fractions, creating fact families and in the end decided that there was a way to evenly divide the chocolate among twenty students.  My son Jack joined the grade three students for the fun and he was treated like a celebrity!

World Autism Awareness Day

World Autism Awareness Day is Monday, April 2.  Since we would like to to bring awareness to our students at St. Anne, we are going to change the date and recognize that day on Wednesday, April 4.  We will take the opportunity to discuss Autism and other exceptionalities.  Students are invited to wear blue in support of Autism awareness.

App Project

Our class, along with Ms. Juneau's grade 3 class has been collaborating with a grade 11/12 Technology class from Holy Trinity over the past month.  Students are creating artwork and curriculum based multiple choice questions that the high school students will program.  Our students have come up with some fun themes and company names to base their video games on.  Yesterday, the Holy Trinity students visited us to check our progress, collect some artwork and explain our next task.  We have our work cut out for us before they visit again in April!
