Math: Telling Time- Grade 5’s only

Students have been learning how to tell time on an analogue clock. They have also been working on being able to determine elapsed time.

How to Help at Home

Ask your child to tell the time on an analogue clock throughout the day. Help them make corrections with their time if they have made a mistake.

  • Ask your child questions that involve the words half past, quarter past, quarter to, twenty five minutes to, etc. See if they can determine what time it is. (ex. What time is it if it is a quarter to 8? – 7:45)
  • Ask your child elapsed time questions (ex. If we left to go to swimming lessons at 6:45 and got home at 8:10, how long were we gone for?)
  • Play the linked math games below
  • Print worksheets from the linked website below

2-D Geometry Test

Students will be writing a 2-D Geometry Test on Friday, March 9,  2018.

Students will be coming home with a test review sheet today (Monday, March 5, 2018).

Also, please refer to the previous post about our 2-D Geometry unit to see what concepts were studied throughout the unit, as well as find links to some online games students can play.

Math Unit: Geometry

Students have been working on a unit in 2-D geometry.

Throughout this unit we have/will be working on:

 

Grade 5

-identifying and naming regular and irregular 2-D polygons.

-Using a protractor to measure and construct angles from 1 degree to 90 degrees and classify them as acute, obtuse, straight or right angled.

-Constructing triangles using rulers and protractors when given their angles and side measurements.

-Looking at lines of symmetry, parallel sides, perpendicular lines, congruency, and similarity in polygons.

Grade 6

-identifying and naming regular and irregular 2-D polygons.

-Using a protractor to measure and construct angles from 1 degree to 180 degrees and classify them as acute, obtuse, straight or right angled.

-Constructing triangles and parallelograms using rulers and protractors when given their angles and side measurements.

-Looking at lines of symmetry, parallel sides, perpendicular lines, congruency, and similarity in polygons.

Carnaval Friday

Students will be participating in Carnaval at the school on Friday. This is an all day event. Many events are outside, so students need to dress for the cold weather.

Reading Unit: Inferencing

We have begun working on inferencing in our reading workshop block.

Learning Goal:
We are learning to make inferences about the texts we are reading. We can understand what characters are thinking, feeling, or doing without it being directly stated.

Success Criteria:
– I used information from the text
– I used my own ideas
– I used picture clues
– I put them all together to help me make my inference

Text clues + my own knowledge = inference

 

How to Help at Home

When reading with your child, ask them questions about how the characters might be feeling about events that have happened. Have them find a piece of proof from the book to support what they have said. They may also use their own personal connections to help them make an inference.

Science Quiz- The Human Body (Grade 5’s only)

Grade 5 students will be writing a science test on the structures and functions of the human body on Thursday, January 25. Students went home with a review sheet today (Friday, January 19) to help them study for their quiz. Their quiz will consist of 7 matching questions (match the major organ to the body system it belongs to), 10 true or false questions, and 5 multiple choice questions.

I have attached the review sheet below.
