What a crazy thought to think that June 1st will be here by the end of the week!
5C: Will continue with measurement in math this week, start looking at volume and solving area and perimeter puzzles for an unknown. On Friday they will all have an introduction to problem solving through coding! The students do not have any new things due, but I am waiting for a few things from a few students.
5F: They will finish their dream house projects on Thursday and throughout the week will be working on telling a well-known story in French "Les trois petits cochons". They received rubrics and feedback last week about how they are doing in French and were expected to show them to parents or guardians.
All Sport One Day is an amazing opportunity for Calgary children and youth to try a new sport. It’s also a chance to discover a new passion. With over 70 exciting activities to choose from, parents or guardians can enroll children (ages 6 and above) in up to two FREE sessions for a day of fun and adventure.
Activities take place at 17 facilities all across Calgary. This year, All Sport One Day takes place on June 16, 2018.
Register starting May 22 at 10:00 a.m. Registration closes June 10 at 11:30 p.m.

Some researchers and students from the University of Calgary Math department came to Nose Creek today to do some activities with the grade 5s. They talked about how in their job they are problem solvers and investigators every day. Then, they explained a few different strategy games that the classes were able to play with their peers.
Check out the photo below to see some students in action!
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful and relaxing long weekend!
Updates for the coming week:
5C: In math, 5C is diving into measurement and converting between cm and mm, m and km and which unit of measurement is our best choice. To start, we reviewed measuring area and perimeter, and there were some students who requested some extra help with these topics. Below are some Khan Academy videos that will help.
5C: In French, all students now have access to their provincial or territorial website using Google Sites so they work on this project from home if required. By now, the team should have set up their home page, and each individual student should have set up a page for their town or city. On the individual student pages, they should have typed out the directions of how to get from Calgary to their town or city. Coming up, the students will talk about the weather, what they suggest you pack for a trip, the typical food you can expect to find, and one restaurant they suggest you check out. After that, they will be looking into activities and tourist sites in the area. The students will be given a 50 minute class to research, then a 50 minute class to update their site with the information written in French for each section. They will be held responsible to stay on top of this as it has a quick due date, but culminates everything they have learned how to talk about throughout the year. The project is due on June 14th.
5F: Students in 5F will be finishing their dream house projects this week by working on the paragraph and completing the model on Friday. The paragraph and model are due on Friday.
