April 11


Tomorrow is dress in the clothing of your culture for our presentation of our dolls. We have other classes coming to view our dolls and ask us questions about our culture. This is part of our report card marks for this unit. 

Thank you

Cultural Dolls

Students have been learning about how people show their culture through different art forms. Students have been asked to discuss with you this weekend their cultural background. Some have an idea and some are unsure!

Students on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday IN CLASS will be creating a 2D paper doll that will represent their cultural dress. That being said we are asking if students are able to bring some fabric, decals, etc. to help them create their doll. The doll is the size of a regular piece of paper. So scraps of material work best. 

On THURSDAY. students will be presenting their dolls to the class and are asked to briefly discuss what their culture is, why they wear this outfit etc. really this is their time to brag about their cultural background!  We will also be inviting students from other classes to come and view our dolls. 

Lastly we ask if at all possible that on THURSDAY students come dressed in their cultural dress to match their dolls.

Career Day presentation


Students began our new unit - Measurement. Today we talked about standard (ruler, metre stick, measuring tape) and non standard units (markers, erasers, glue sticks) We talked about why it is not a good idea to use pencils or crayons (unless they are brand new and all the same length)
Students then partnered and used non standard units to measure their table bins and water bottles.

Inquiry into Language
Today students learned the parts of a letter. 

They then completed an activity to practice their new skills

Inquiry into Cultures through Art
