Scholastic Orders

Scholastic orders went home today.  Orders can be placed online until December 5th.  If you would like your order to be a surprise, please send in a note and I will let you know when the orders arrive and we can make arrangements for you to pick them up.

Here is what we have been working on in math over the last few weeks:

-composing and decomposing two-digit numbers in a variety of ways, using concrete materials (e.g., place 42 counters on ten frames to show 4 tens and 2 ones; (Sample problem: Use base ten blocks to show 60 in different ways.);

 – determine, using concrete materials, the ten that is nearest to a given two-digit number, and justify the answer (e.g., use counters on ten frames to determine that 47 is closer to 50 than to 40)

This is what we will be working on:

-– solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of whole numbers to 18, using a variety of mental strategies (e.g.,“To add 6 + 8, I could double 6 and get 12 and then add 2 more to get 14

Just a reminder that the school Walk-a-Thon will take place tomorrow.  It will be postponed if it is raining.  Thank you to those who have already submitted their money.

Word Wall Words
There will be no new Word Wall words this week. It would be a good time to review the words that have already been introduced.


Here is what we will be working on over the next few weeks:

-represent, compare, and order whole numbers to 100
-read and print in words whole numbers to twenty
-compose and decompose two-digit numbers in a variety of ways, using concrete materials (e.g.,       place 42 counters on ten frames to show 4 tens and 2 ones

Here is what we have been working on in math:

– count forward by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, 10’s, and 25’s to 200, using number lines and hundreds charts, starting from multiples of 1, 2, 5, and 10 (e.g., count by 5’s from 15; count by 25’s from 125);

– count backwards by 1’s from 50 and any number less than 50, and count backwards by 10’s from 100 and any number less than 100, using number lines and hundreds charts (Sample problem: Count backwards from 87 on a hundreds chart, and describe any patterns you see.);

We are now working on patterning.

– create a repeating pattern by combining two attributes (e.g., colour and shape; colour and size) (Sample problem: Use attribute blocks to make a train that shows a repeating pattern involving two attributes.);

– demonstrate, through investigation, an understanding that a pattern results from repeating an operation (e.g., addition, subtraction) or making a repeated change to an attribute (e.g., colour, orientation).

-identify and describe, through investigation, growing patterns and shrinking patterns generated by the repeated addition or subtraction of 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, 10’s, and 25’s on a number line and on a hundreds chart (e.g., the numbers 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 are in a straight line on a hundreds chart);

There are patterning games on the right side of the blog for students to practise.

Word Wall Words

Students will be writing 5 Word Wall words in their agenda at the beginning of each week. Students should practise reading and writing them at home on a regular basis. These are not meant to be difficult words, but words that are very common in reading and writing. The goal is that your child read and spell these words independently.

You should now be able to find my name and order Scholastic books online.  Please let me know in the agenda if you are still unable to place orders.


If your child is supposed to go to EDP and you are picking them up in the side yard at the end of the day instead, please let myself AND EDP know.

Thank you
