In Language Arts, we just finished up our persuasive writing unit. We blogged our pieces so be sure to check them out. Mr. Wamboldt and some grade 5 students came into help us turn our topics into movies using iMovies. The groups created excellent videos. I am hoping to get them onto kidblog soon. We are now starting a historical fiction reading and writing unit to connect with our upcoming Social Studies unit on Vikings. Be sure to ask your child how you can tell if a book or writing piece is historical fiction.
In Math, we just finished up with multiplication and division so check out our great multiplication videos on kidblog. We will be coming back to multiplication and division when doing problem solving. 3B just started our measurement unit with a look at using non-standard units for measuring things and are exploring calendars. We will soon learn about measuring length and perimeter. We will be creating a plant garden using this knowledge.
In Science we are finishing up our Forces That Attract or Repel unit before moving onto our Plants and Soil unit. This unit will be quite a fun experience as we will be studying plants and learning about them at the same time with a class in Alberta.
Be sure to check what we have been up to in 3B by exploring our kidblog and Twitter page.
