This week was a busy one with lots of exploring in measurement (temperature and weight). Next week, we will explore capacity. Students are beginning to have a better understanding of facts and opinions, and we will be doing more writing with opinions next week. We also spent time looking at how adjectives help us become more descriptive in our writing, and how they help explain what something looks like, such as buildings. The pictures of structures students have brought in have been placed around the room, and they are beginning to think about where these buildings might be from and how do they know?
Students have been on the lookout for others who are demonstrating the learner profile attributes and attitudes and will be nominating anyone they see for a weekly award. This week's winner was Hakim for being caring and principled. Well done, Hakim! His certificate will be displayed on the board in the hallway for the following week.
