Hello parents and guardians,

This month went by very fast. Some of us learned about Decimals and Percents while others learned about Mixed Numbers and Improper Fractions. We have been learning through using measuring cups, drawing pictures, using math tools like digi-blocks and base 10 blocks. 

We are learning about how babies are formed inside of their moms in Family Life. 

We also started a new read aloud. It is called Walking Home by Eric Walters and it is about Kenyan Refugees. 

When we have the laptops, we have started using the Hour of Code program. We get to do some Block Programming through learning how games are made on the computer rather than just playing them. We also got Sphero Robots, and Parrot Drones, and Ms. North says we are going to do some math learning with them. 

We celebrated the International Day of Pink this month. We got to create our own pink shirts and wore them to support anti-bullying. We put positive messages on them and discussed what bullying was and what to do if you see it, or are a part of it. 

We received a life sized Hudson the polar bear from the Assiniboine Park Zoo, as a gift for thinking of the well-being of the bears. Room 16 signed it to pledge to help the bears out! 

This month on April 22nd is Earth Day, so we did some Earth Day promise crafts with our Learning Buddies in Room 1. We also presented on the 4 R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover) at assembly by filming our own news cast! 

We also went to a performance called The Sounds of Spring and junior and senior groups preformed classical music with violins and other instruments. 

We worked on an entry for a book the school is making and it is based on our learning. Our topic is Learning Through Observing. We did some art to go in the book and there will be some written parts as well.

Then we debated why we chose the Political Platforms that we did.

​​​Hello agian,

Wow! What a busy month we had this March. It seems like time has just flown by. We started our month off by going on a field trip that we won through a contest as a class to the Assiniboine Park Zoo. Room 16 made the commitment to turn our classroom thermostat down in order to reduce the amount of energy we use. We are learning about climate change particularly in the Arctic, so this contest was a great action project to take part in. Our class was chosen from multiple entries and we were very excited. At the Zoo we learned about how climate change is influencing the landscape of the habitat of the polar bears. We got to see many other types of Arctic animals that are also impacted like the Wolf, Snowy Owl, Arctic Fox, Seals, Beluga Whale, and more.

We were so lucky to have Mr. Allan Kotz visit our class as well. He is a student at the University of Manitoba who is getting his Masters of Science with a focus on Environmental Change. He came in and gave us a presentation on the pollutants that are influencing our atmosphere, and talked about the changes we can make in our lives to help.

We finished our class read-aloud this month as well. We read the book "George" by Alex Gino, and learned about the topic of transgendered youth. It had us explore the topics of being true to yourself, and being happy to be who you are. We did an art project where we traced our silhouettes, painted them, and filled our heads with only positive thoughts about ourselves. We learned that you should be free to feel good about yourself.

This month we finished our science creature dioramas, started new books in book club, and started to build our own countries from scratch. We are building our own countries to explore the government, and take on important roles in our built countries to further our understanding of how countries work. In math we have started learning all about fractions and decimals. We are doing lots of work around building numbers and exploring how numbers are found in mathematical problems.

Perhaps the most exciting thing we did this month was go to Camp Cedarwood. Our days were filled with Snow Shoeing, Skiing, Broomball, Tubing, GPSing, and playing outdoor games like Predator Prey. At night we had a hay ride, made s'mores at a bonfire, and got to stay up late with our cabin mates. We showed off our singing and dancing talents at Kareoke night, and watched a movie. We ate really well, and did crafts too! It was busy, but it sure was fun. This was such a great experience to get to participate in with our friends and with the teachers.

We were so excited to have the adults in our lives visit our classroom and thank them for being so interested and encouraging in our education. What a great way to close our March learning by showcasing some of the work we have been doing. Thank you for all you do.​

Hello Parents and Guardians, 

We have been really busy this February. It has been "I Love To Read Month." We had a guest visitor from the Edmonton Eskimos, named Eddie Steele #97, to talk to us about reading and following your dreams. 

We did Pocket Poems where people asked us to read our poems and we had to read them to them. We decorated our door with one of our favourite class books in mind. 

Karin Adams is an author and has written books like Frost Bite Hotel, Lights, Curtains, Cows, and No Television No Fair. She came in almost every Tuesday and Thursday after recess. 

We even had Shaw TV come to interview us to ask us about books!

This month we also did a lot of other things. We went to Gordon Bell High School and Ecole River Heights School, and heard from Earl Grey School so we could start to think about what middle school we are interested in going to.

We also won a field trip to the zoo and we are going to talk about the polar bears and how they are affected by global warming. 

We had a woman from Elections Manitoba come in and we had an election where T.J. was voted the new Mulvey Prime Minister! 

We had fun doing it. What a busy month!

By T.J. and Dylan​
