Literacy

Reading Workshop
Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Every morning we are spending time in Reading Workshop where students learn to read independently while other students are having guided reading. Every month our focus will be on a new comprehension strategy. We will be learning together a variety of reading strategies to assist with reading.
We are learning that Reading is Thinking and that it is important to think about what you are reading and to ask questions.
Reading is vital to all other aspects of the curriculum.
Please ensure that your child is reading at home every night as this develops fluency and comprehension.



Writing Workshop
Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

We will be having writing workshop daily and students will be learning various forms of writing through out the year (poetry, recounts, narrative, procedure, non-fictional report etc).


Mathematics

Math Workshop
Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

We will be having a double period of math most days to include Math Talks, hands on learning and problem solving. There are five strands of mathematics to learn and our biggest strand is Number Sense and Numeration.
Please go on xtramath each night for 5 minutes to practice basic addition and subtraction skills. This will ensure that students will have a firm grasp of basic math drills with accuracy and speed.
Communication and Application are a big component of the math curriculum not just the Knowledge and Understanding.
