Grade 5 Core French lundi, le 23 mars

We are continuing to build our Time Line cards. I am available to help- just message me.

Today you will research for the creation of 5 cards .  You can use anything that has significance for your card in the time frame that I state.

On 1 side there is the date. On the other side write 1 sentence describing your card in French from your understanding of the specific time  frames indicated.

For example:  La date des Incas: Le soleil est très importante.

  1. In the time of the Incas.
  2. In the time of Samuel De Champlain.
  3. In the time of M. Guillotine.
  4. In the time of the first telephone.
  5. In the time of the first steam train travel in Canada.

 

Once finished you can watch this video:

Multiplication Practice at Home

I little while back I wrote this post about whether or not we should be memorizing our facts. The verdict is still out, however my own opinion is that I don’t believe memorization is the best strategy. But, I do think that it is extremely important to practice! I gave a few suggestions for practicing your facts at home in that post, however, while we are learning from home over the next few weeks, and especially while we are in our Multiplication and Division unit in math, practicing at home will be very important. Here are a few different ways to practice.

Here’s a site with 30 fun ideas that play on your musical, artistic, or kinesthetic learning style.

This site has a few different activities for each fact to help practice (and memorize if you believe in that)

Mrs. Cleveland has also created a list on her math blog, to many different useful math practice sites, not only just for multiplication.

What a month these two days have been!

Thank goodness it’s Pyjama Day tomorrow!  Bitmoji Image

We have finished Day 2 of our new Distance Learning program. It has had its tricky moments, but from my perspective, it has been amazing. I’m so impressed with how engaged the students are, how quickly they’ve gotten into the flow of our new routines, and how they are all owning their own learning. We even had a dance party!!

If you have any pictures to share, please add them to the comments! We’d love to see what their “classroom” looks like these days.

We’ve already learned so much, and we’re still working out the kinks. Hopefully tomorrow will run smoother than today and so on. We are obviously limited to what we can see and hear from this side of the computer screen, though. So if you haven’t already, please fill out this feedback form to help us make any necessary tweaks for next week.

Here’s the slideshow the students and I went through, so you have a better sense of what the expectations are and how we hope this will all work.

Here’s to another great day of learning tomorrow!
