Farewell from Ms. Lee

Division 13,

Thank you for having me in your class this year! I am so happy that I had the opportunity to meet all of you and I am grateful for all the memories we shared this year! All the field trips we went on, all the lessons we learned together and the times we played together, I will cherish all these moments!

Be safe and stay healthy! Hope to see everyone again soon! Wishing all of you the best and have a great summer!

Week 10

Hello friends,

As we approach the end of the school year, this is the last learning package. In the package,  you will find a book on the life cycle of a chicken, phases of the life cycle labelling sheet, a chick body parts labelling sheet, a coloring sheet, make a sentence worksheet, and some math measurement worksheets and journal. In your writing journal, we want you to write about something you learned this year at school. Try to write at least 3 sentences with proper uppercase letters, finger spaces, and periods at the ends. Continue to do your readings online at GetEpic  and Raz-Kids. 

For Math this week, we are learning about distance

Activity: How far can I jump?

  • Put a piece of tape on the ground and jump as far as you can from the tape
  • Put a piece of tape on where you land
  • Do it 3 times

  • Measure it using non-standard units (Your foot steps)

  • Record your measurements

Which jump is the farthest from the starting point? Which jump is the closest to the starting point?

Our baby chicks!

They should hatch sometimes this week! I will post some photos on our class blog and make sure you check the Instagram page for more photos.

As always, message Ms. Lee or Mrs. Curtis if you have any questions or need help with anything!

 

 

Week 9

Hi friends,

After seeing the chicken eggs online, hope you are all excited to learn more about the life cycle of a chicken. This week in your packages, you will find the life cycle of a chicken worksheets, chick facts worksheets, math measurement worksheets and make a sentence worksheets. There is also a measuring tape for you to use! In your writing book, we would like you to write about what you like to do outside on a sunny day. Try to write at least 3 sentences with proper uppercase letters, finger spaces, and periods at the ends. Make sure you’re going on GetEpic and Raz-Kids to read more books on chicks and measurement.

For Math this week, we are learning about length and width and standard measurements:

Make sure you review these to understand the differences between height, length and width

Activity 1: Find 5 items in your house and arrange them from shortest to longest.

Activity 2: How many steps long? How many hands wide?

Pick a room or a space in your house. Use your steps to measure how long the room is.

Pick a window in your house. Use your hands to measure how wide the window is.

Activity 3: Using the measuring tape, I want you to measure the length of the 3 items you have chosen. Record your answers on the worksheet.

Life cycle of a chicken

 Continue to write your observation in your journal, to see more photos of the eggs, make sure you check out our Instagram page. And work on the chick facts worksheet and the life cycle worksheet.

As always, text or email Ms. Lee or Mrs Curtis if you have any questions or need help with anything.

Hello friends,

It was great to see a few of you at school and most of you online this week. Hope everyone is doing well! This week we received our next project – chicken eggs! Here’s a couple of photos. Check out our Instagram page for more daily photos!

   

More butterfly release

Week 8

Hello friends,

In your package this week, you will find a self-evaluation sheet, a baby chick journal, a fill in the blanks (Yes! We are getting baby chicks on Tuesday. Stay tuned for photos!), some printing sheets, make-a-sentence sheets and some Math measurement worksheets. We are not sending anymore books in the packages, so make sure you go on GetEpic  and Raz-Kids to read books online.

For Math this week, we are starting our measurement unit:

  1. Watch this video of a story called, “How Tall” by Mark Weakland. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMgZki6MdAc)
  2. For activity, you’re going to measure your own height using the yarn and paper clips. See Ms. Lee’s photo examples (I am 55 paperclips tall.)
  3. You’re going to record your answer on the recording sheet. Then, try to find someone in your house to measure (you won’t have enough yarn for this, you will have to get your partner to lay on the floor and place paperclips beside them). Record and compare your answers. Who is taller?
  4. Complete the Math measurement detective worksheets

Make sure you follow these rules:
