### New Math Chapter: Addition and Subtraction

CHAPTER 4

Dear Parent/Caregiver:

Over the next couple of weeks in sha'Allah, your child will be learning about addition and subtraction. We will relate subtraction to addition, use mental math, estimate, and add and subtract to 2-digit numbers. We will be using a variety of strategies and the goal will be for your child to be able to apply a strategy to any task at hand.

Throughout this time, you and your child can practise some activities such as the following:

• Your child could place different numbers of items on a chair and on the floor, then write or tell you all the fact family sentences about each situation. For example, 7 toys on the floor and 6 toys on a chair has the fact family 7 + 6 = 13, 6 + 7 = 13, 13 – 7 = 6, and 13 – 6 = 7.
• Your child can examine game boards to find ones where strategies for adding and/or subtracting can be readily applied rather than always counting.
• Your child might act out a stair-climbing problem. For example, if you take 3 steps up and 1 step back, how many steps will you take to get to the top of the stairs?
• Your child could measure stuffed animals and other toys. Then, estimate how much space 2 or 3 of them would take if placed end to end and how much space would be left on a 100 cm shelf if different toys were placed on the shelf.
• Your child might set up a “penny sale,” giving various items prices less than \$1. Then they can find the cost of different pairs of items.
• Your child could look up basketball scores in a newspaper and show you how to find the difference between winning and losing teams’ scores.

You may want to visit the Nelson Web Site at www.mathk8.nelson.com for more suggestions to help your child learn mathematics and develop a positive attitude toward learning mathematics, and for books that relate children’s literature to addition and subtraction. Also check the Web site for links to other Web sites that provide online tutorials, math problems, and brainteasers.

In Nelson Mathematics 3 Workbook, pages 27 to 34 belong to Chapter 4. There is a page of practice questions for each of the 7 lessons in the chapter and a Test Yourself page at the end. If your child requires assistance, you can refer to the At-Home Help section on each Workbook page.

JAK,
Tr. Hajer

### Pioneers Project

AA
Dear Parents,
A project motivates students to gain knowledge, and they remember it longer. Projects give students the chance to apply the skills they learn in school to personally relevant and real-world situations. Your child also learns skills in Project Based Learning such as how to think critically, solve problems, work in teams, and make presentations. These skills will help students succeed in the future, both in school and in today’s work world.
Our project is called “Pioneers”.
Starting from 17 Nov.,2015 it will last about 2 to 3 weeks. Students will learn about some of the major challenges that different groups and communities faced in Canada from around 1780 to 1850. The project’s Driving Question, which focuses our work, is “What is the difference between pioneer times and the modern days?” Students will be involved in researching on the Internet, preparing an oral presentation, creating different media formats like brochures, flyers, posters, etc. To make it more related, students will also learn about the Early Muslim settlers in Canada.
At the end of the project students will make presentations to the class.
Students will be meeting curriculum expectations of Social studies, Media Literacy, Writing, Reading and Oral communication. Students will be assessed individually on their content knowledge as well as on Learning skills and work habits during the whole process.
P.S: Rubrics for Social Studies project will be taken home today in shallah. Students have to come up with a plan before they really start working on it. They should preferably work with partners.They choose their own partners.
