Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Spring break!  April will be a busy month full of learning. 

In Language Arts, we will continue with our spelling, phonics and home reading programs.  We will be doing a lot of writing in April and really focusing on stretching our sentences out and adding more detail to make them sound more interesting.   

In Math, we started learning and practising subtraction before the break.  We will be continuing with subtraction as well as starting a short unit on shapes. 

In Science, we are continuing our unit on Solids, Liquids and Gases.  We have been doing some hands on activities and experiments in this unit and the students are really enjoying learning in this way. 

In Social Studies, we are learning about Communities in Canada.  We are almost finished learning about our smallest province, Prince Edward Island.  We will be learning about Iqaluit, Nunavut next.  We will look at the similarities and differences between Manitoba and Nunavut.  We will also be busy preparing for our Social Studies Learning Fair.  It will be held on the evening of April 18th.  The Scholastic Book Fair will be back and will be open to friends and families to browse and shop during the evening of the learning fair.  It will be located in the gym. 

In Religion, we will continue to work through our We Believe program.  We will start looking at the different sacraments, specifically focusing on the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion. 

As the weather continues to get warmer, our playground will become very wet.  It is a good idea to come prepared with the proper outdoor clothing and to send an extra set of clothes, socks, and mitts to school each day. 

Thank you,

Mrs. Shade
