I am happy to be teaching in 5D for the 2015-2016 school year!
In language Arts we have a primary focus on developing reading and writing skills. We have explored new strategies and techniques to build comprehension in reading and as well enhance writing. Im math we have been fully immersed in exploring numeracy and developing number sense. Discovering the geographic vastness of Canada has been a big part of our studies thus far. We have studied National parks and Regions of Canada and compiled research in order to complete project based assignments. We have been hands on in science exploring Magnetism and Electricity and using Electricity to Build Mechanisms, before moving to Weather and Classroom Chemistry, and finally finishing with Wetlands and Ecosystems in the spring.
