Our Awesome 100th Day of School

Our 100th day of school was July 7th!! We celebrated in 3 locations of the school. In each location there was an activity to do.  year 1 ,2 ,3  and 4 all participated. We made 3 groups mixing up the classes. The first activity was to make Fruit Loop necklaces by trying to put 100 Fruit Loops on the 100 chart and then on a string. Ms. D and Ms. P made the necklaces with the students in year 1 class.  The second activity was to make a hat with 100 dots painted on it. Mrs. Siqueira and Ms. Flavia made the hats with us in the year 2 class. The third activity was to make a picture with 100 pattern blocks.  Ms. B and Ms. A worked with the student to make the pictures in the playground.

On that day everyone was so happy! We all loved to celebrate out 100th day of school!

New Math Unit Interview

Mrs. Siqueira’s interview of Bruna about our new math unit:

1.) What is our new unit in math?

Our new unit is the multiplication unit.

2.) How did you feel when we started the new unit?

I felt afraid because I don’t know so much about multiplication.

3.) What do you remember from last year about multiplication?

x is the symbol for multiplication.

You need two numbers to make an equation.

If we skip count we get the multiples of a number. For example 3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27,30…

4.) What is the multiplication chart tell us?

It tells us all the multiples of a number and the answers of some questions.

5.) How do we use the multiplication chart?

First, you find the number on the top row , for example 7, then you find the number on the side column , for example 6, then you follow the row and column until the meet. 7×6=42

6.) Anything else you want to share about our new unit?

The unit is a little bit difficult. I am nervous to have the test so I will have to study a lot!

Thank you sharing Bruna!!

 

The amazing, super, duper, mega collaboration stories!

In the collaborative stories we write one sentence and pass to the next person. Our stories started developing more and more. Some stories, in the end, didn’t make sense or other were really funny. For example, one was about a girl that went to a dance studio and stayed there for 10 years. When she came out of the studio she had a beard and mustache. Then, the girl married another girl with a beard and mustache.

To write the collaborative stories we made a list so each person had a turn.

In our case we had 9 students.

We needed:

2 sentences for the beginning of the story

1 sentence for the problem

3 sentences for the middle

1 sentence for the solution

2 sentence for the end of the story

Science Weather Infograph Posters

Hi everyone,

Today we are talking about weather infographs!!

Our inforgraphs are about weather. We all wrote about different countries and cities. Our infographs showed graphs of the temperature and other informations. We can use infographs to show a lot of information. For example some of the cities we learnt about were: New York, Los Angeles, Natal, Calgary, Milan, Dubai, Tokyo, Toronto, Montreal, Rome, Boston and Orlando.

We learnt very interesting weather facts about the cities. For example, some cities have hurricanes, tornadoes, snow and Chinook winds.

We made the posters at home and we presented in class.

Have you ever done an infograph?

Our camera died after our first presenter!

Skype Date with Buenos Aires

This post is a little late because I forgot to assign it to a blog group. So this is a special post from Mrs. Siqueira!

We connected with the class in Buenos Aires as a part of The Same Day in March project we did for science. We were able to ask many questions about the weather and share with them about our weather. We learnt that it snowed there in 2007! We had no idea! They were surprised to here how hot it is here all year round. It was a great first skype date and we look forward to many more!

That day we had to practice being flexible because when the moment came to call we had technical difficulties with our smart board and thats why we are all huddled around a laptop. We still had so much fun! We are going to keep working on taking turn and listening carefully so we can keep learning more from classrooms around the world.

Year 4 Vision Video!!

In the first week of school with all the newness surrounding us, with all the excitement that is back-to-school we took some time to look past the moment and imagine the whole year. As we thought about what we wanted this year our vision video came to be. After democratically choosing an inspiring song for our video we got to work in creating our posters. We each made two poster to inspire the year.

Here is the final product. Can you imagine if each day we focused on theses ideas! The year would be AWESOME!!

How can you help us stay focused on our best year ever?
