Improve your French language skills throughout the school year by engaging in fun independent learning activities. Madame Raymond (your new French core teacher) has prepared a Google Slide Presentation to show many ways in which you can learn on your own. Please go through the Slide Show and review all 7 activities. I’m sure you will love learning French and showing your teacher and parents how you are making an effort to improve your language abilities this year. Below this presentation, you will find the following Google documents: a book report, a video report and a record sheet. Enjoy the presentation. Travaillez-fort!
The students had the opportunity to choose their homework again this week. The new homework packet should consist of three pages of math and one page of writing. The students are able to choose additional math pages if they wish. I just tell them they can’t stay up until midnight doing homework 🙂 There are also a number of math links on this blog that the students can choose to work on in addition to their homework.
The homework for this coming week is to work on multiplication facts and work on paragraph writing. The students had the chance to choose their homework pages to put in their duo-tangs. They will need to write two paragraphs on topics of their choice on lined paper or work on the paragraph sheet with stated topics.
The students also chose two or three pages of multiplication of specific times tables they need to work on. Some students have also asked for an extra page of multiplication that they will bring home tomorrow. All the students were pretty excited about having the chance to choose their own homework. I hope they are just as excited about doing their homework at home 🙂
Homework duo-tangs are due next Wednesday, January 22nd
Tonight’s homework is to write a little review about one of the books you are currently reading for our reading challenges. You will share your reviews with the class tomorrow. It will be interesting to see what everyone is reading. Maybe one of your classmates will want to read the book you review. You can print the book review sheet out or you can write your review on lined paper, it is your choice.
Tonight’s homework is called Four Corner Math. You will take a piece of paper and put the number 50 in the middle of the page. Your job is to find four different ways of making 5o. Try to use different operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) for each corner. You may use as many numbers as you wish in your questions.
*Bonus*You may try to do another page of Four Corners Math, for the numbers, 36, 49, & 64
Here is the online homework 4A and 4B voted for tonight. This task is just like the other tasks we have done in class. Try and find as many different ways to combine these numbers using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to get 24 as an answer. You may only use each number once and you cannot combine the numbers to make a two-digit number. You can write your questions down on paper or you can show your answers in the comment section of this post. Have fun!
2. If you had three wishes, what would they be? Write about your wishes in Google docs and share it with me.
3. Choose a well-known story (perhaps a fairytale or another
classic) and write a different ending. Write the story in Google docs and share it with me.
4. Write about the animals. You could talk about your favourite pet or wild animal. Or perhaps you could write about what animals
mean to you or how we can look after animals. Write about the animals in Google docs and share it with me.

The students will be coming home with their green duo-tangs today with a poem to practice and a few math sheets that focus on subtraction with regrouping. 4A and 4B will be reciting the poem at our Rembrance Day Assembly. The students have done a great job of reciting the poem at school and I know they will do a wonderful job reading the poem at our assembly. We have spent time examining the new vocabulary and discussing what the poem really means. We are dreaming of this peaceful world to honour all the soldiers who fought for our freedom. Our classes plan to make this world a more peaceful world. If one person can make a difference, just imagine what 22 amazing children can do.
