Our fitness break today involved selecting 2 exercises that would elevate our heart rates, identifying a numeric pattern, and then extending it for 20 terms. E.g. 1 3 4 6 7 9… We then alternated our exercises to match the numbers in each term. E.g. 1 sit up, 3 knee ups, 4 sit ups, 6 knee ups etc.
CCAT– a note was sent home a couple days ago to explain the CCAT testing that will take place next week. CCAT = Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test
Report Writing: Over the next few weeks we’ll be working to develop our report writing skills. Students were to choose a topic from 3 possible categories, all with some reference to habitats. Their homework is to gather information to support their topic and bring any information (with the source name) to school to use to plan and draft. (Please note- some students have needed several reminders that they are not researching about the characteristics of one animal. The category that involves a specific animal is the one where they choose a species that is at risk. But, the focus is on why they are at risk and what can be done to help.)
