Students designed math quilts this week to demonstrate their understanding of equivalent fractions and comparing fractions by finding common denominators. Now that students are able to find equivalent fractions with denominators of 100, we will be looking into how fractions are related to decimal numbers. This project has been posted to FreshGrade.
Our class took our first grand bus voyage together to UBC today. We paid our first visit to the UBC School of Kinesiology and took part in many engaging and unique activities at their facilities. We loved getting to know our UBC Student Leaders! Activities today included modified rugby, pickleball and fitness in the gym! We'll be visiting UBC next on October 27th.
Don't forget that...
We are already half way through November...6 more weeks of school this year and only 3 weeks away from report cards! Where does time go? Division 3 took part in a lot of hands-on, experiential learning both at JQ and on field studies. Pictures express a thousand words and I've documented (most) of our learning experiences over the past month and shared below...

We are now finished the first half of term 1 ! This last week, Division 3 has been busy finishing up our first math unit on number sequences and sharing our 'rules of divisibility' math games and study tools. We have also been having fun working in groups to create new French fairy tales using images from existing picture books and taking advantage of the good weather to study ecosystems outdoors. In English, we are now 2 chapters into our novel study 'A Wrinkle In Time' by Madeleine L'Engle. We are busy in salle 300!
I have updated our site! Enjoy the last 1.5 weeks left in this beautiful Vancouver summer!
