Field Trip (finally)!

After many attempts, we finally made it to the Manitoba Museum in March! It was a very busy day with lots of fun and learning.

We had a session about solids, liquids, and gasses, where a solution was made that seemed to be neither solid nor liquid!

We learned about the chemicals used in diapers which attract and absorb liquids...

We had some time to explore the science gallery...

We also had some time to explore the main museum gallery, including the Nonsuch!

And we learned about Winnipeg's past and how the community was developed, including a guided tour of the Old Winnipeg section of the museum.

Mme Page

You may have heard of Mme Page - she is our numeracy consultant, and has been spending some time in our classroom teaching us various games and techniques to sharpen our math skills.

Recently she taught us how to use these math sheets to do 2-digit addition!

We're back (hopefully)!!

Greetings from Room 11! After a series of technical difficulties (the blogger app stopped working on my iPad, and it seems that it is no longer offered for apple products; I got blogger working on my phone where I started taking pictures after the iPad seemed to not be an option, but could only log in using my personal google account and not my work one which this blog is linked to...) I think we might be back in business!!

Today we had Mr. Elliott ('Mr. E') in our classroom for TIA (The Integrated Arts). Mr. E is a cartoonist and worked with us this morning on some drawing skills. We worked on seeing the simple shapes (circles, squares, etc.) inside more complicated drawings in order to help us draw them.

The students had a little extra time to look at some drawings Mr. E had made, and try to copy them.

These are some images Mr. E had the students try to draw.
