Mots Fréquents:

In the back of the agenda binder, you will find Mots Fréquents words.  Students are responsible for studying List 1 words this week. On Friday, students will have a spelling test.

I have placed a DIY white board and dry erase marker in each student’s agenda binder. These are yours to keep and use at home.  Some students enjoy practicing their words on a white board, others prefer to practice them out loud. Whatever works for your child. This will be new for most students as they have not done spelling quizzes in the past.

We will also be working on these words throughout the week at school.

Face Masks: Please be sure to send an extra clean face masks to school each day. Public health recommends masks be washed after each use. We have also had some discussion at school about finding a mask that is comfortable and fits well. Some students are struggling with their masks because they are too big and won’t stay over their nose and mouth. Students are doing their best to follow the guidelines and I understand it is not easy on our class, but I appreciate their positive attitudes.

 Math Homework: This week’s math sheet is dealing with ordering numbers and using the < > or = sign. Both grade 4 and 5 have the same sheet with different numbers.  

# 1 a-c is asking students to decided what number is larger. If students are struggling, remind them that the “PAC MAN” eats the larger number.

# 2 a-d asks that numbers be placed in order of greatest to least great (big to small).


Friendly Reminders:

·       Gym Clothes needed for Monday – Thursday. Students will be going outside for gym whenever possible, but Mr. Sturgeon has asked that they be prepared with clothes just in case.

·       Students have been doing well with mask wearing. They have been keeping a positive attitude and doing their best to keep their masks on. I appreciate the effort my students have been making. We have had a lot of discussion about finding a mask at home that you like and making sure it fits you properly. This is very important as we are wearing masks for most of the day.

Please be sure that you send a note with your child if they are staying after school for soccer.  There was a lot of confusion over soccer today. Some students were unsure if they were staying or if they had a drive home. Some students were also asking if they could call home to see if they could stay. The office does not allow students to call home during the day to verify if they can stay for after school activities.  If there is no note from home, students will be sent home on the bus. I appreciate your understanding.
