All week, the homework has continued to be…

…studying times facts 10-15 minutes a day, and preparing for our special Spanish word spelling test (Thanks to our newish student Irene for that fun list!).

We are nearly finished our 2nd term class novel, “Shiloh”.  As well as the above studying, the homework for tonight is to compare and contrast two of the main character in the book, Judd and Marty.  A Venn diagram worksheet was explained and sent home with students for this purpose. It’s due tomorrow (Thursday).

If parents are curious to see if their child is improving in her or his recall of times facts, they should check the clear pocket of the student’s agenda book.  The most recent tests were handed back marked on Monday, with a reference as to how that test compared to the one the class took about a week ago.  Almost everyone in the room improved! 🙂

Did you hear our class will be in the school production of the “Wizard of Oz”?  Ask your child what song we will be performing!

Finally, stay tuned for news about our EMJS “WonderFair” on Feb. 13th.  It’s built around exciting kid-made Science experiments, and every Fr. and Eng. class in grades four and five are participating.  Wowza!!

21st Century Learning?

How will we learn in the 21st century?
What would school, your classroom (or even teachers) look like?
What do we need to learn to live well in the future?

And how could we invent “future learning”?

I want your ideas…
