Class update

Assalamu Alaykom dear parents,

Third graders took their spelling notebooks home today. Can you please sign the first quiz and send it back with your kid tomorrow in sha'Allah.

We have also started Unit one in Social Studies: Canada's Pioneers
In this unit your child will be focusing on the pioneer settlers of Canada. Your child will have the opportunity to identify the countries of origin of settlers and describe their life and contributions. A comparison will be made of the life of early pioneers and their own lives. The contributions of Aboriginal peoples will also be explored.

This study will be used as a springboard for numerous activities. In addition students will be given the opportunity to complete a home project. The information package will be soon sent home in sha'Allah.

  • There are 3 types of patterns: Growing, Shrinking, and repeating patterns.
  • Attribute: a feature that you can use to describe and compare things (example: colour, shape, size, number, texture, position)
  • Core of a pattern: the core of a pattern is the smallest part that repeats.

Language Update

AA dear parents,

Our first unit in L.A will be Fables. In this unit students experience a variety of classic, humorous, and thought-provoking fables that make the reader think about themselves and others.

aesops_fables_book

Rationale:

• Fables
 play
 an 
important
 role
 in
 teaching
 children 
morals
 as
 well 
as
 certain
 literary
 elements.
This
 unit
 provides
 an
 opportunity
 for
 children
 to 
briefly 
explore
 fables 
in
 a 
broad
 context,
 while
 diving
 deeper
 into 
the
characters
 and
 moral
 of
 Aesop’s
 famous
 fables.

As students read/view illustrations and read fables and graphic fables, they develop:

  • An understanding of the characteristics of narrative text pattern for fables
  • The writing strategy of combining sentences
  • The reading strategy of retelling
  • The media strategy of expressing opinions about illustrations
  • the speaking strategy of using tone and volume
  • Word study skills

Math Update

Dear parents,

Over the next weeks in sha'Allah, your child will be learning about patterns: both repeating patterns and growing or shrinking patterns. The goal will be for your child to identify, describe, extend, and create patterns. For repeating patterns, the focus will be on naming attributes of patterns and how those attributes change. The focus for growing or shrinking patterns will be on the start number and the amount that is added or subtracted each time.

Throughout this time, you and your child may engage in activities such as the following:

  • Your child can look around for repeating patterns and create a list of these. They can ask and answer questions about the patterns, such as "what attributes are changing in the pattern?" (for example, colour: blue, red, blue, red, blue, repeat; size: small, big, big, small, repeat) and "what is the part of the pattern that repeats?"
  • Your child can decorate items using repeating patterns. For example, they can create their own notepaper or cards by making a repeating pattern around the edge. They can use shapes, names, and colours for these patterns.
  • Your child can make and use a 100 chart at home to show growing or shrinking patterns. For example, they can start with an item that costs $4, then add eleven $3 items to the "bill." (They can use the repeat function on a calculator, if possible, to find each new number.) After they mark the numbers on the 100 chart with counters or circles, they can describe the pattern they see and explain the pattern rule.
Please refer to the At-Home help section on each workbook page. I will be sending the workbooks on Moday in sh'Allah. Students have to do the At Home help p 1. Please remind your child to bring the workbook back to class the next morning. It is really important that they have their workbooks with them or else they won't be able to work in class.

Jazakum Allah Kheir,

Tr. Hajer
