We have been talking about the word ‘Reconciliation.”  We came up with many messages we wanted to send out to anyone impacted by Residential Schools.  We decorated rocks to share our message then left them by the pond.  We send out messages of hope, love, faith, truth and peace.

New Math Unit: Data Analysis

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 28, 2021

To Parents and Adults at Home…

Today our class began a new mathematics unit on data analysis.
Data analysis relates to the collection, organization, and
interpretation of information.

In this unit, your child will:

  • Collect data to find information or solve a problem.
  • Organize data using tally marks, charts, lists, and line plots.
  • Construct and label line plots and bar graphs.
  • Read and interpret charts, line plots, and bar graphs.

Here are some suggestions for activities you can do with your child.

Have your child collect and organize data at home to help make an important decision. For example, he or she could collect and organize data to decide the flavour of birthday cake to bake for the next family birthday. Your child should write a question to ask family members, collect and organize the results, and decide what flavour of birthday cake to bake.

With your child, look for examples of bar graphs in newspapers, magazines, or on the Internet. Have your child share 3 things that she or he knows by looking at the bar graph.

Happy SPRING EWES Families! Every year, the EWES plans a spring event to get families interacting with the school. This spring, we decided to create a scavenger hunt BINGO to help everyone get outside and explore our beautiful city! We came up with two different cards to fill in. One has the EWES Family Walk BINGO. Here’s a chance to show off your family’s creativity! Take a walk with your family and take pictures following the themes on the card. Check off each theme you complete and upload some your favourite pictures to the EWES facebook page. The other card is the EWES Playground BINGO. This card lists off many of the parks and playgrounds around the city. Challenge your family to visit as many playgrounds as you can. Take a family selfie at EWES and upload that to the EWES facebook page. Once your family has filled in as much of the BINGO cards as you can, bring it back to school to enter a draw for a $10 Scholastic Books coupon! *Don’t forget to write your name and classroom on the card. Your family can complete as much of the BINGO as you choose! The card does not have to be fully complete to enter it into the draw. GOOD LUCK and Have FUN! Sincerely, The EWES SCC

New Math Unit – Geometry

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 3, 2021

We have started a mathematics unit on geometry.  Geometric shapes are all around us, and mathematics can help your child recognize them.  Understanding geometric form will help your child appreciate the geometry found in art, design, architecture, and nature.

In this unit, your child will:

  • Identify and name various shapes with 3 or more sides
  • Build, represent, and describe geometric objects
  • Draw and talk about 2-D shapes and 3-D objects

Encourage your child to look for geometric shapes and objects around the home and neighbourhood, and talk about them.  Here are some suggestions for activities that you can do at home:

Look for geometric shapes in buildings and street signs.  For example, a stop sign is the shape of an octagon, and a yield sign is the shape of a triangle.

Look around the house for geometric shapes.  Talk about the shapes you find.  As you do, look closely at the corners and sides of the shapes.  Count the corners and sides with your child.

Look for 3-D objects around your home, such as a fridge, stove, table legs and so on.  If possible, ask your child to count the number of corners and edges.  Talk about how the object’s shape is related to its purpose.

Look through magazines with your child to find as many different 2-D shapes and 3-D objects as you can find.

New Math Unit – Fractions

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 12, 2021

We are learning about fractions.  Children will build upon their real-world experiences of “fair shares” to recognize a fraction as an expression that relates a part and a whole.

In this unit, your child will:

  • Find fractions of a whole.
  • Compare fractions with the same denominators.
  • Solve fraction problems.

We use fractions every day in many different situations.  Encourage your child to recognize the use of fractions in daily life, for example, when filling a glass half full, measuring ingredients for a recipe, or sharing an apple.

Here are some activities you can do with your child to help reinforce the concept of fractions:

  • When you serve your child food, such as a sandwich or an orange, cut it in half (or thirds, or fourths, and so on) and challenge your child to name the fraction for each part.  After some is eaten, have your child name the fraction for the parts that are left.
  • Provide your child with opportunities to divide food items into equal parts.  Have your child tell the fraction name for each part.
  • Play a game of “fraction concentration.”  On index cards, write the fraction symbols, such as 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, ….1/12.  Prepare a second set of cards, on which you draw pictures to illustrate each fraction.  Shuffle the cards and arrange them face down in a grid.  To play, take turns turning over two cards.  If the fraction picture matches the fraction symbol, the player keeps the cards.  If not, the player replaces the cards.  Play continues until all the cards have been matched.
