We went to the Grade 4 Service Market Day to try some very interesting and yummy food and we played some funny games. All pf the proceeds for the Grade 4 Service Market Day go to charitable organizations Grade 4 students have partnered with and to service projects grade 4 students are passionate about. Thank you parents for supporting these important causes, organizations and our grade 4 students.
While we were not able to attend our field trip to the local school to find out more about Vietnamese sign language, we did have some special guests at our centers this week. Ms. Jill and Mr. Jonathan (Hugo’s Dad) taught us some sign language and we discussed our Unit of Inquiry: How We Organize Ourselves. We continued to work on our Information Animal Non-Fiction book and Magic Words at Literacy Centers. We played some new Math games too. Our favorite Math games were Telling Time to the Hour Match Up and Addition Battle. We have also been solving some new , tricky puzzles and working hard on our teamwork and cooperation skills.
This week, we said good-bye to our friend Eni. Her family is returning to the United States. We will miss her very much. We made cards for Eni and reflected on our time learning with her. On Wednesday, we invited her to lunch and played games with her during Play Based Learning. We wish Eni and her family a wonderful adventure and return to the United States.
