Week of February 19-22

We are halfway through February already. I hope you get some family time outdoors or indoors this weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are continuing work on Multiplication and even starting an introduction to division this week. The times tables chart in your child’s folder is to help practice facts up to 36. Division is an introduction this year only. We use it to relate to multiplication, so no expectation to know division facts.

Words for the week: R controlled vowels- we call them the Bossy R’s! 10 words to practice and complete a spelling activity in homework.

We are going to start our province poster writing and creating this week. Students have a province in Atlantic Canada than they have been researching about. Our Non -Fiction writing is in full swing.

Keep reading and recording as usual next week:

Have a great long weekend!!

Book Coupons- 6 dollars

Your child received a 6 dollar book coupon to use for any scholastic book order we send in until June 30! Some students left their coupon with me ( so they wouldn’t get lost) and other students took them home before Christmas break. Check the price along the last vertical bar for PEI pricing and send along the difference if needed. Ex. if a book costs $9.15, you would send in $3.15 and use the coupon for the rest. Happy shopping and reading! Any questions just email me at balucas@edu.pe.ca
