Hi folks!

After a wild start to the week with a snow day, school delay and a gazillion fire alarms, we are back at 'er! We've been learning about important people who have made positive change for Canada and the US. So far we've discussed Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Barack Obama and Viola Desmond. I strongly encourage everyone to continue these conversations at home - not only during Black History Month but every month! The Lunar New Year is coming and we will be having a fun time on Monday making some paper lanterns. Students will be given a red envelope to share with you at home.

In Math, Grade 3 students have mastered addition with regrouping and now are working on subtraction with regrouping. We will then be moving on to basic multiplication. Grade 4 students have covered multiplication facts and are now concentrating on division. They will be moving on to multiplying 3 digit by 1 digit numbers. Getting to the big leagues now!

Science experiments and learning about the Scientific Method is in full swing. Grade 3 students are covering NB nature and animals. Grade 4 students are looking at countries of the world. In English we are puttering along too - finishing graphic novel unit.

Grade 4 students have a quiz on January 25th on NB provinces and their capitals.

As I type this out, we are learning LOTS!!! Best get back to the students! We have a lot to do. Pictures will be posted to our website later today of our week.

As always, feel free to shout out!
