As we head into the 3rd week of October, we can truly appreciate the change of seasons. The foliage has begun to change colour, trees are becoming bare, and the air is getting cold and crisp. With that, I would like to remind students to dress warmly for school. It's easier to take a jacket or sweater off if you are too hot, than to not have enough clothing when you are cold.
In Math, we are developing our numeration and place value skills. Students are encouraged to practice their skip counting skills at home. Try to practice skip counting by 2's (2,4,6, 8,10,12,etc.) and 3's (3,6,9,12,15,etc.).
In Language, we are comparing features of fiction and non-fiction texts. Students should be reading for at least 15 minutes a night. At home, have your child read some non- fiction texts, such as a newspaper or magazine article, a cookbook recipe, or a biography. Non-fiction texts have photographs, captions, titles, facts, etc.
