# Mid-May

In Writers’ the class continued working on Real Script. We were introduced to exit strokes and ligatures and practiced writing using our fountain pens.

In Readersâ€™ we learned that the best way to recommended books we love is by introducing the book title and main characters, retell the big things but be careful not to spoil the end and to pass along the life lesson. We practiced giving a book recommendation with a reading partner.

We chose a part of a book to perform to the class remembering to use our best storytelling voice, bringing the book to life.

The class also enjoyed some new Mr. Potter and Tabby books.

On Wednesday we read outside with 1P!

In Maths the class made predictions about the number of hands for successive numbers of people. We solved many problems about counting and combining things that come in groups of 2, 4, 5 and 10.

The class were introduced to How Many Squares; an activity that involves figuring out the total number of squares in a set that includes a combination of singles, pairs and groups of 5s.

The class revisited games about combinations of ten and were introduced to Rolls Tens; a game that involves collecting connecting cubes and grouping them in rows of 10. We were also introduced to a game called Ten Plus where we had to combine two single-digit numbers and then record that total in terms of how it relates to 10.

Finally, we completed an end of unit assessment solving two problems about combining equal-sized groups.

In IPC we learned about various insects and chose an insect we would like to do research on.

On Wednesday the class was invited to go to the Science building and view the Grade 6 Science Fair investigations. It was really interesting!

In Art, the class finished their seed mosaic!
