Great day at the Be Brave Hitman Game today! Thanks to all who participated and joined in the community spirit to recognize Telus' anti-bullying initiative.
Aztec calendar pieces are due tomorrow and will be proudly displayed in the office this spring!
Aztec Children's Storybooks are due today and will be read to the Grade 4 buddies on Friday. The 4's are excited to hear all about the Aztec culture and the adventure that their character is going to embark on!
This week we are looking at 'The Deadly Meeting' and how the conflict progresses between the Spanish and the Aztecs!
Literacy circles are continuing this week and there will be a group meeting on Friday for some in-depth discussion about the characters, conflict and rising action.
Students are working on their Aztec Children's Stories that they are preparing for their grade 4 buddy. They started off last week interviewing a partner in Mr. Baker's class, and are now trying to incorporate the things their buddy likes in a children's story. This has been a challenging task design as the 8's still need to incorporate much of the Aztec culture and make it authentic. These stories are due on Tuesday, February 19th and will be shared with the 4's later during the week!
The literacy circles have now had their first group meeting where some great discussions were generated from the first week's leader. Roles have changed for the second week and students have continued reading independently as well as out loud in their groups. The next meeting will be Friday, February 22nd.
Students will start off this week with their Snack-n-Chat cereal box book share projects. On Tuesday we will be starting literacy circles which will last for approximately 4 weeks. There will be many choices for all levels of readers in the class. More information to follow!
In Social Studies we will take a look at how Spain focused their sites on expanding westward. As well, students will be interviewing some grade 4 students about what they find exciting in a story, and then the 8's will be creating an Aztec storybook for their specific grade 4 buddy!
