Friday:

It is neon day at WES on Friday. Dig out your bright colours and wear them! Maybe it will help it seem more like spring??

3D Shapes

Today the kids are learning about 3D shapes by building them. No one is complaining about having to do a second period of math today. Oh the power of marshmallows!

Multiplication and Division:

Our class started a mathematics unit on multiplication and division. Multiplication and division are basic computational skills that children must eventually master in order to succeed in higher levels of mathematics. The focus of this unit is on developing an understanding of the processes of multiplication and division in order to develop strategies for multiplying and dividing whole numbers up to 5×5. Children will use counters, number lines, and arrays to develop their understanding.

In this unit, your child will:

  • Model multiplication and division up to 5 x 5
  • Find strategies to multiply and divide up to 5 x 5
  • Pose and solve story problems involving multiplication and division.

Encourage your child to share different strategies used to multiply and divide.

We use multiplication and division in many day-to-day situations.
Here are some suggestions for activities you can do at home:

  • Look for things that come in groups of 2, 3, 4, and 5. Create problems. For example: Bikes have 2 tires. How many tires are on 4 bikes?
  • Use a deck of playing cards, using only the 1s (Aces) to 5s. Shuffle the cards. Flip the first card. This represents the number of groups. Flip the second card. This represents the number of objects in each group. Have your child draw a picture to match the cards, and write a multiplication and division sentence to match the picture. Continue until all cards are used up.

Exploring 3D Shapes

We were learning about polygons, but now we are learning about 3D shapes. Here are some pictures of the students exploring edges, vertices, faces and bases.

      

Garden Experience Field Trip:

Our class had a great time at our Garden EXperience field trip put on by Agriculture in the Classroom!  We learned about composting, farming, plants and insects too!  Ask your child all about it!
