We have already had a busy start to May.  We have been busy preparing our Mother’s Day gifts and cards which the students worked very hard on.  We have also been preparing for the upcoming learning fair at the end of the month.  The students are very excited to share their projects with you. 

In Language Arts, we will be working on some mini writing projects, continuing our spelling program and working on our reading skills. 

In Math, we have been working on addition with regrouping.  Students are starting to get the hang of it but more practice is still needed.  Next, we will be learning subtraction with regrouping.  Please help your child practice their basic addition and subtraction facts to 18.  It makes a huge difference in their math skills if they know these facts quickly. 

In Science, we are continuing to work on the Position and Motion unit.  We have learned many new vocabulary words in this unit and we have had the opportunity to do some partner work which students are really enjoying.    

In Social Studies, we just finished learning about and comparing Nunavut to Manitoba.  We will now start taking a closer look at our whole country, Canada.  We will learn about important symbols, buildings and monuments and discover the importance of diversity in Canada.  

May is the month of Mary.  We will be learning and talking about Mary throughout the month as well. 

Our field trip to Morning Sound Farm is quickly approaching.  The students are so excited to go on their first field trip this year.  Thank you to all the parents who are able to volunteer and come with us to the farm.
