Last day to submit grade four art gallery trip forms is tomorrow- Friday, April 24th. If you have not sent in your child’s trip form and they are interested in participating, please send it in tomorrow! Thanks!
We have started our new Math unit this week on Measurement. The students were given a quick review of previous concepts and introduced to the units of measurement: KM, M, CM and MM.
They asked some interesting questions as part of an inquiry such as: What would the length of all the teachers at Rousseau be stacked on top of one another? How long are the East and West wings of the school combined? What is the distance around Rousseau School? What is the length of my teachers foot compared to other teachers?
We also worked on some conversion of units this week which we are continuing with. Next week, we will be moving onto Area and Perimeter!
I hope all grade 3/4 students had a wonderful Easter holiday. We have a busy week ahead working on procedural writing, Literature circles, reading response questions and more. Our math unit on Money will be wrapping up with a test on Friday and a review sent home on Wednesday. Please have your child complete the review to ensure all concepts are understood.
Donations are needed for Kleenex and Lysol wipes if anyone is willing to send these in – they would be much appreciated! Also, our fields are extremely muddy so its always a good idea to pack some extra clothing for unfortunate slips into the mud. As always, indoor shoes please. It’s really uncomfortable to sit on a muddy carpet.
