Bonjour! I just wanted to let you know that we have changed the date of the unit test on multiplication and division. It will be Wednesday January 24. review_sheets_for_unit_test.docx Review sheets are attached. Extra help will be available Wednesday and Thursday this week and Monday next week,
Intensive French Conversations: Starting next week each student will have a conversation in French to show off what they have learned this term. These will be one-on-one conversations which will last about 10-15 minutes. There is no need to practice at home as we practice daily in class.
The dates for these conversations are Jan. 22, 25, 29 and Feb 1. Your child may be scheduled for any one of those days.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful and relaxing winter break. We are right back into the swing of things in 5A.
In French students are working on a project that will include work they have done in all themes we have covered so far.
In math we are working on long division. We will have a test on the unit (multiplication and division) on January 25. Review sheets will be sent home well in advance.
POW #13 is due this Thursday.pow_13.docx
Here are a few updates for this week:
In French we are working on speaking in full sentences, describing a day in our life. By the end of the week, many students will be ready to start working on their written project which is a comic strip depicting their routines of a day. It is amazing to hear how well they are speaking French after only a few weeks!!
In math we have almost finished our unit in whole numbers. We will have a unit test next Thursday November 2. Please have your child review the attached practice sheets. 6.1_whole_numbers_unit_review.docx
