Div 4, 5 and 6 have been going on Loonie Swims for the past 3 days! So much fun!
Div. 4 has also started making their Memory pages. Below are images of students brainstorming exciting events that have happened this school year.
Iqbal won the last Battle of the Books edition on historical fiction. Div. 5 was reading to vote on which fictional book, written in the perspective of an animal, would win in the upcoming round!
Div. 4, 5, and 6 have a unique opportunity to come together into 10 groups to form obstacle courses as a demonstration of their understanding of Simple Machines. Each group is also responsible for driving and programming their Ollie through the obstacle course.
With a leading 10 votes, Coraline by Neil Gaiman won! Div. 4 had to plan their writing using two different graphic organisers. Students’ final votes were in the form of a 5 paragraph essay, with a thesis, hook, supporting paragraphs comparing a similar element, and a conclusion!
Our David Suzuki poster is coming along…only 7 more experiences and we would have fulfilled our goal!
Picture above is our Simple Machines jeopardy game.
Vocabulary Quiz is on Wednesday May 31st!
I have included the vocabulary words here in case you want to check/compare with your Spelling Swirl activity!
So impressed seeing such smart shoppers in my classroom! The Grade 5’s were given $50 to buy as many groceries as they could without going over the limit. Some students were kind enough to give me the change so I could grocery shop as well!
Students in Div. 4 continued to learn about simple machines. This lesson was focused on the wedge. Look how they could balance things with a pencil’s wedge compared to its eraser flat side! Genius Hour is also really coming together.
We played graveyard, handshake murder, and Fantastic Four Extreme Relay
Enjoying nature with buddy reading!
Votes are coming in for Battle of the Books.
Ms. Lloyd came shortly after to show us how to make our Ollies jump over a ramp.
