UofI #3 Family Histories: ARTIFACTS
Thank you, parents, for supporting your children to select artifacts for our Unit of Inquiry.

It has been wonderful to have the students sharing their artifacts with the class and telling us how these artifacts connect to their families.

We still have a handful of students who haven’t yet brought in an artifact yet. If your child is still not sure what to bring, remember, an artifact can be anything that connects to your family or your family’s history. You may be able to get some ideas from the examples in the slideshow above.

100thdayWed. 6th February is our NEW 100th Day of School.
Please remember to either send in or email us a photograph/video of your idea(s) of how to show the number 100 and we will share them with the class.

We look forward to seeing your ideas.

Literacy and Numeracy Connections
Our new Daily Data now allows students the opportunity for greater independence in sentence-writing (Today is…) as well as illustrating subtraction using an image of base 10 blocks.

They are beginning to make connections to number bonds that equal 10 as well as extending patterns and creating one of their own.
