Let curiosity take the lead

Posted: April 16, 2024

Hi folks!

Another week already!

Math: Students are asked to practice their Math facts for 5 minutes each night. This can include but not be limited to - flash cards, Splash Learn, roll dice/deck of cards (addition or multiplication), worksheets, practice questions etc.

 

Grade 4 families: check out our class website with a "new" way to divide that students have started practicing in class. Some students will be bringing a practice page home tomorrow and teaching YOU how to do a question on your own! Mme. Robichaud | King Street Elementary (nbed.nb.ca)

 

Summer French Programs: Many parents were asking about summer French programs on the Miramichi. Carrefour Beausoleil's library does have a GREAT selection of activities for free that you can attend. They also have a small tutoring program that's available too. From time to time I receive information of other tutors in the area and have attached one to this message. thumbnail_IMG_1116.jpg 

 

Gum: A couple students need to have gum as a strategy to help them concentrate in the classroom. It's been decided from a school and in conjunction with their parents. If any other parent feels like it may help their child, just send in a note. If it ever begins to become a problem, then the privilege/strategy is removed as it is no longer effective.

Happy Solar Eclipse day!

Grade 3's are officially done their Multiplication and Division Unit test. It will go home in the next few days. Next up, geometry. They are wrapping up good copies of their Animals projects and are beginning to learn about NB.

Grade 4's are wrapping up their multiplication and division unit now. 2 digit by 1 digit division is the last new thing (3 strategies) before their review and test. They are finishing up their good copies for their country projects and beginning to learn about NB.

With last week's unexpected storm and stopping to learn a bit about the eclipse, we are little delayed in timeline. All good!

Tomorrow is SOLO speech. Good luck to all those involved! Our class performs Thursday. Dress nicely please! Choir members will also be performing.

Hi folks!

A very, very short week but a busy one all the same. Is there ever a week that's not busy?!

Speaking English: Students continue to have "batons" (popsicle sticks). So you are better involved in their performance of speaking French in class, you will find a mark in their agenda at the end of the day. Grade 3 students have 5 batons while grade 4 students have 3 batons. So if you're grade 3 child has 3/5 at the end of the day, that means they were caught speaking English twice. It's okay to slip up from time to time but consistently isn't a good thing. We don't want their brains to reset into English when we are working in the French classroom. We will try to keep this going for a few weeks to help monitor the situation.

Grade 3: We are finishing up our animal research reports in both English and French (some have already completed their good copies while some have yet to complete the drafts). We will soon be starting a new unit on New Brunswick! In Math, students are wrapping up their unit on multiplication and division facts. A test will be held next week, followed by a quick revisit of addition and subtraction with regrouping. The review package will go home once the unit is mostly complete.

IXL | Division facts up to 10 | Grade 3 math

IXL | Multiplication facts up to 10 | Grade 3 math

Grade 4: We are finishing up our country research reports in both English and French (some have already completed their good copies while some have yet to complete the drafts). We will soon be starting a new unit on Canada! Next week students will be tested on the provinces, territories and capitals of Canada. In Math, students are wrapping up their unit on 2/3 digit by 1 digit multiplication and division, including division with remainders. Please help your child by reviewing the following questions and providing extra help if necessary. 62x8, 325x7, 18÷3, 45÷6, 65÷9. Answers are: 496, 2275, 6 and 7r2. A review package will go home once the unit is mostly complete. Don't mind the "grade 3 math" part. It's really grade 4 in NB!

IXL | Divide two-digit numbers with remainders using arrays | Grade 3 math

IXL | Divide two-digit numbers with remainders | Grade 3 math

Science Week: Next week is SCIENCE WEEK! Students will be participating in province-wide Science experiments, meetings etc. I'm sure they'll have lots to share!

 

Reminders for the week:

WED: Public library card (hoping to go if weather cooperates), KSE library books, recorder needed, Mango visit!

THURS: gym clothes needed

FRI: No school!
