Humanities:
This week Students will peer edit their projects and begin to share their "Creating Change" presentations with the class. Students  will also have the opportunity to work with Cathy Beveridge, our expert writer,  on character and story development. Students will use facts and research they have developed in Science to write a creative, illustrated story about their Weaselhead tree. These two activities will be the focus of our week. Students will also be away on a Field trip on Thursday, and it is a PD day on Friday. Students may be required to bring home some story writing homework this week. Please check the daily blog on our website for updates. 

Math/Science:
There will be a Quiz later this week that covers the Math Concepts we have tackled so far this year.  The purpose is to get a sense of where students have developed their skills and where we need to concentrate more of our efforts.  We will also be reviewing our Mathematical Communication Skills and building some rubrics that will target these specific skills.  In Science, we will be learning more about the physical properties and structures of trees and leaves, along with a review of nutrient cycles and photosynthesis!

Jumping Pound Demonstration Forest:  We will be heading to Kananaskis this thursday, October 25th. Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the elements and also has a bagged lunch and water bottle, as we will be away from the school all day.  Students will be back in time to take the school bus. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
