Hello everyone! 

I hope you all had a great day yesterday and were able to do some of the activities.  Remember to just try your best and it is ok to make mistakes...that's how we learn!

I put some new activities up for today on the document below this message (November 2nd).

I am also going to try and put up a fun Halloween STEM activity if you like to build things. Look for it a bit later.

Have a good day!!

Good morning boys and girls!

I hope you all had a fantastic time trick or treating for Halloween! I imagine you have alot of candy now! I am having trouble staying out of the treats myself...especially my favorite treat!

Today is our first day of home learning and I hope that you will have some success with the activities and with the online websites.  Just try your best and do what you can.

Have a great day!  It is supposed to be sunny out so try to get some fresh air too!

Good morning! It's Friday and it's our last day of learning from home for this week.  For today you can continue to explore the SplashLearn activities, choose a book or two to listen to on Tumblebooks, and try some of the following:

Math:  "Mystery Number of the Day"...Use the clues to find out how many pumpkins were growing in the farmer's field:

                   It is more than 200.

                   It is less than 300.

                   It is an odd number.

                   If you start at 7 and count by 10s you will say this number.

                   The sum of the digits is 14.

More skip counting practice.  Complete the pattern with the next 5 numbers.

75   85   95   _____   _____  ______   ______  ______

214  224  234  _____   _____   _____  ______  ______

452  442  432  _____  ______  _____ ______ _______

2  102  202  ______ ______  ______  _______ ______

337  327   317   ______ _____ ______ _____ ______


Reading:  Read or listen to a story.  Think about your favorite part and what you liked about the story.  Would you reccommend it to a friend?

Writing: Use your imagination and write some sentences about the following:  Would you rather travel into outer space or to the bottom of ocean?  Why?  What would you do when you got there?  What would you like to see/learn?

Have a great weekend! If you have any questions or concerns you can email me. I also created a group email where I can easily update you on what is happening in our class. 

Thank you for your help and support with learning from home this week.

Hello everyone!

It's a wet rainy morning but hopefully the sun will come out again soon! I hope that you are all trying to do some reading, writing and math while at home this week.  Here are a few activities for today:

Math:  1.  Spash Learn website (I will be giving an assignment today.)

          2. has some games to practice math facts

          3.  Let's continue practicing skip counting:

Start at  75 and skip count forwards by  10s  to 270

Start at   256  and skip count backwards by 10s to 56

Start at  0  and skip count by 100s to 1000

Start at  45 and skip count by 100s

Start at  50 and skip count by 5s to 200

            4.   How many 3-digit numbers can you make using only these 3  numbers?     5      1       3


Reading: Read aloud to someone or to yourself or listen to someone read to you.  While reading think about the setting, the characters, the problem faced by the character and the solution.  If you are reading a non-fiction book, think of 3 new facts you learned while reading.  

The tumblebooks website is also a good choice.

Writing: The following are suggested activities. 

1.       Describe what Your Best Day Ever would look like. Where would you go? What would you do? Who would be with you?

2.     Make a list of all the places that you have travelled or visited in our province, other provinces or even other countries.

Take care,

Mrs. MacDonald

Good morning everyone!

I hope you had a good day at home learning in our new way for these couple of days. I was pleased to see several of you had logged onto Splash Learn and did some math activities yesterday.  Great work!!

For today you can choose a different writing/math sheet from the packet if you haven't already completed them and/or go online to do some Splash Learn activities or you can choose the following:

WorkWork/Writing:    Print the letters of alphabet down your page. Now next to each letter try to think of a word that begins with each letter for something you can find around your house (inside or outside).

Reading:  Read aloud to someone or to yourself for 15 mins. Try to make predictions as to what might happen next while you read.  If you have no books at your level, you can listen to someone read aloud to you.

I have also put the weblink for Tumblebooks on my teacher page just below this message. 


1.   Create a chart:   Even Numbers     Odd Numbers

Now place these numbers under the correct heading:    23   328    266    129   431   66    284    437

2. Review ways to show a number...for each number in standard form show how it can be made in written form, expanded form, and by drawing the base ten blocks.

              266           321        175          98

3.  Skip count backwards by 10s starting at  96

     Skip count backwards by 10s starting at  178

Don't forget you can check out Splash learn again too!

I hope you all have a great day.

Good morning boys and girls!

I hope you are all well and had a nice Thanksgiving Weekend. It looks like we won't be at school until possibly Friday of this week. I will be posting each morning here on my teacher page with different activities you can do while you are at home.  

It is important to do a little bit of reading, writing and math each day. In the packet that I sent home last month there are a few different activities for each of the subject areas.  You can pick one from each and do that for today.  I understand that you do not have levelled books at home but reading something from home or having someone read to you works as well. 

For math you can go on    our class code is SNTXCE   passwordmemo34


If you have already completed the activities in the packet you can do the following:

* Write a recount (something you did) from your long weekend...having a turky dinner, playing outside with friends, hockey practice etc.

* Read and think about the characters, setting, problem and solution.

* Skip counting practice by 10s from different starting points....start at 4, start at  67,  start at 243

* Show these numbers in written form,  expanded form, and with base ten blocks:   156    431    278   

It's supposed to be a beautiful day outside... try to get outside to play.

Have a great day and I will leave a message here again tomorrow!

From, Mrs. MacDonald
