Class News:

This week we started a number of new integrated units that will carry on for the next few weeks.  We are learning how to use to text features to find important information, and the class is using this knowledge to present information to each other about famous/important Canadians.  Together, this 'Famous Canadians' project will touch upon a number of language arts and social studies topics. We also started a math unit on fractions and a science unit on the human body.  We also continue to read 'Wonder,' with a final project being due April 26th (tentative date).  

Please note, I would like to implement a new indoor/outdoor shoe policy.  Please make sure your child has a set of indoor shoes for the portable.
