Day 4 – The RSA Animate Rehearsal

Remember to return your reregistration packages to secure your spot for the 2018/2019 school year.
We began our day with our fractions, decimals, ratios, and rates unit. Today we learned that ratios compare two quantities of the same unit. We wrote part-to-part ratios and part-to-whole ratios. We also learned that we can use multiples and tables to generate an infinite number of equivalent ratios.  Students who did not complete the practice work in class are asked to complete p. 126 – 129 of the MMS 6 practice book for homework. I have now checked pages 118 – 123 of the practice book. Students are asked to correct and/or correct these pages too.

Next we worked on speeches. Today’s goal was to practice reciting the speech to different partners and receive feedback on ways to improve the presentation of the speech. Students need to focus on memorising the speech. We will continue practicing daily with partners and will have a whole-class rehearsal on Wednesday morning. Everyone is asked to have the speech memorised by the end of day Tuesday. Students who are behind on their speech work did not go to first recess today.

During today’s inquiry time, students worked their final project for this unit. Today’s goal was to rehearse their RSA Animate. Students used their 10 step facts, doodles, paper, and markers to plan out the RSA and then have a practice run with the illustrator drawing and writing while the cameraperson recorded. Students should practice speeding up the videos tonight. We record the final video in class tomorrow. Everyone needs their cameras at school for this. For the rest of this week. Students are bringing their explorers unit tests home today. Please review, sign, and return the tests.

Students attended French and gym class today.

Our class is responsible for hosting the bake sale tomorrow and on Wednesday. Please support our fundraising efforts for this event by sending in items to sell at the bake sale. All items must be peanut and nut free.
