Week of May 27 and June 4th EQAO starts

Dear Parents,

This week students will be working with 3-D geometry shapes and measuring mass and capacity in addition to the daily spiral review sheets which has questions randomly taken from all themes taught through the year.

mass:  the amount of matter in an object
capacity: the amount a container will hold

Some activities:
Look around the house for examples of prism and pyramid shapes( tissue boxes, milk containers..)
Find various containers with different masses in grams or kilograms. They can estimate and check.
They can compare the sizes and units of measure in mililitres(mL) or litres(L).

As you may already know that the first week of June is the EQAO week. We have been practicing and we will be practicing regularly however please continue to follow up with HW completion at home. The skills that students learned this year requires regular practice and practical application to everyday life in and out of the classroom.

Science: Students started working with soil hands-on. This week Wednesday or Thursday they will have a chance to plant their own flowers to the designated place for our class. Please provide gloves and help students pick their own plant.

Best Regards,
