Hi there kids! I hope you have had fun the last couple of days while I have been sick at home. I know many of you are probably super tired after the Paul Brandt concert last night. I am sure it was a blast! Send me a comment telling me about it if you have time this weekend - I would love to hear about it.

So, next week in Math we start our multiplication unit.

Grade 4 students will be using mental math to multiply facts up to 9x9.

Grade 3 students will be introduced to the process of multiplication and learn how to multiply facts up to 5x5.

Here are some links to some fun games to help you practice!

Have fun and I hope you have an awesome weekend.

Good morning Grade Fours!

Well, we are coming to the end of our Fractions and Decimals unit in Math. I am really proud of how hard you have all worked on these difficult concepts. The effort you put into your learning really shows!

Today, I would like you to review how to add and subtract decimal numbers by doing an activity on Math Live. Go to the link I have attached below and choose the activity called Addition and Subtraction of Decimals.

Hi there Grade Threes!

Welcome back to school after your Christmas holidays. I had a great holiday, and judging from the stories I have heard the last couple of days, I can tell you did too!

Every year, many people around the world celebrate the new year by making new year's resolutions.

What is your new year's resolution?
