What's Happening This Week:

Next Council Meeting: Mar 20 @7pm


Upcoming:

Movie Night - March 29 (Council Event)

In Math:

We have completed the first half of our Measurement unit.  The test will be coming home by Thursday (students were away before March Break and need to write it).  Our next topics are Surface Area of a Rectangular Prism, then a Triangular Prism.  Finally we will find the Volume of a Rectangular Prism, then a Triangular Prism.
These topics tend to confuse some students. The concept is fairly easy (find the area of all the surfaces and add them up) but there is a lot of showing your work, following the steps and using formulas properly (the formulas we learned from the first half of the unit).

In Language Arts:

This week we will continue with our new novel, Hatchet. You can view all the work as we are doing it online.  Everything is the student's Language Arts folder.
We are still practicing our general EQAO reading and also Grammar skills - continuing with Pronouns (Personal, Possessive and Indefinite).
