Weekly Learning Review : 18th of January 2018

Weekly Learning Review

Class:                                             Week Ending:
Spelling:  Defined words with ‘ough and ‘augh’ endings. Students were asked to look up the definitions in the dictionary.

Comprehension: Students used various comprehension strategies to answer questions from on both fiction and non-fiction passages.

Writing: Students learned the difference between closed and open ended questions, using ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘when’, ‘where’ and ‘why’ to plan, write, and carry out interviews with partners. Students were expected to write the questions; differentiate between open ended and closed questions, and answer peer questions with full sentences, correct punctuation, grammar and capitalization.

Students worked in their student math books to practice multi-digit multiplication and understand multiples of a number. They were also taught how to find the least common multiple between two numbers.

Students were taught that multiplication and division are inverse operations. They practiced multi digit multiplication and long division while checking their answers with the inverse operation.

Students were taught to round a number to the nearest ten and nearest hundred. They also used rounding to estimate the product (multiplication) of three and four digit numbers.
Students learned about light and shadows and the various properties of objects and how they interact with light to produce or not produce shadows (i.e. solids and liquids).
Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship Education
Students discussed the definition of integrity and honesty and how they can apply it in the classroom and outside of school. They discussed consequences and how every action has a consequence, either positive or negative.
