Ralph Brown School 2017 – 2018, Grade 3/4/5, Room 106 - Mr. Chudley ~Program Overview~
Hello, my name is Scott Chudley and I will be your child's teacher this year. It will be a busy year full of learning. We will be using a school wide program to help teach math called "JUMP Math". Within 106 I will be using a writing program developed by Lori Jamison Rog called "Marvelous Minilessons for Writing". I will also be using a literacy program called "Words Their Way".
106 is what I call a "Flexible Learning Studio". Student's physical needs and comfort level is of up most importance when learning. With that in mind, I have created a variety of seating options that students can choose from in order to make learning less physically restrictive. They are more than welcome to change seats as their physical needs fluctuate. If the students are comfortable, they will be more attentive and more importantly, better learners!
In science we will be studying some very exciting hands-on topics: the human body, simple machines, magnets and weather. In Social Studies we will be looking at first peoples, colonization and the fur trade.
There will be many extracurricular activities available for your student at Ralph Brown School. Some of the activities are basketball, soccer, volleyball and run club! All Grade 4 & 5 students will be expected to participate as patrols.
106 home reading program: Students will be asked to take home books at their current reading level everyday. Books will be placed in a large plastic zipper bag along with a duo tang, which will contain reading log sheets. The package must return back to school the next day. I ask that you spend at least 10 minutes an evening with your child listening and watching them read their books. It is a small investment in your child's future success in school!
Please feel free to contact me by phone (204 589 7355), by email firstname.lastname@example.org or personally at the school if you have any questions or concerns. You are more than welcome to pop in anytime to experience life or volunteer in room 106.
Let's make it a great year together,
This year the students of 106 will be studying:
|In math we will be using JUMP math to look at patterns, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers, fractions and geometry. We will also be spending time throughout the year developing our math problem solving skills as well as number of the day activities! Assessment will be based upon the WSD math pathways guide.|
|We will be doing various reading groups throughout the year, looking at a wide range of genres (including audio books). We will have a very comprehensive home reading program. I ask caregivers to use the home reading program as an opportunity to share in the growth our young readers. We will be using Fountas & Pinnell as our Benchmark assessment tool for reading. |
|We will be writing a lot this year. Every opportunity we get we will put pencil to paper. Just some of the activities will include: "Would you Rather Journals", daily edits and science journals. In addition to the activities we will be developing our knowledge base on a wide variety of writing styles. We will be using the WSD writing pathways as our assessment guide. |
|Social Studies||We will be looking at first peoples, colonization and the fur trade.|
|Our science journey will begin with the healthy body, then forces and simple machines/magnets and we will finish with a look at our weather. We will be doing many hands-on experiments as well as writing about what we observe. |
