Goals for Students
The main goals of mathematics education are to prepare students to:
1. communicate and reason mathematically
2. use mathematics confidently, accurately, and efficiently to solve problems
3. appreciate and value mathematics
4. make connections between mathematical knowledge and skills and their applications
5. commit themselves to lifelong learning
6. become mathematically literate citizens, using mathematics to contribute to society and to think critically about the world
I sometimes wonder if these were as well thought out when I was in primary school. Doubt it.

Room 4 just completed The Reindeer Games (The Great Escape) in 41 minutes. We had to find clues to solve 6 puzzles. It was troubling, but fun. The class broke into groups to tackle the different puzzles. After opening the final puzzle lock, the class was rewarded with a free movie coupon. Way to go gang! The challenge is out for Room s 3 & 5 to complete the puzzles.

Thank you to all the families who were able to make it out for our Triad Conferences. The students were proud to share their learning from our first term. personally, it was great to see many of you again and to even meet some of you for the first time. If you were unable to make it, please feel free to drop in and look around at the amazing things the students of Room 4 are doing this year.

We've been busy for the first two weeks of school. We have been learning about our school-wide and classroom expectations. It's been busy playing around and working hard. We’ve played outside a few times as a whole class – Grounders, Kickball, Marco Polo, and Basketball. Inside, we’ve had some fun playing Math Playground games and drama games. Not all of our time has been spent playing though. Every day, we have done a lot of writing – lists, free writing, t-charts, some story writing, and some song writing. Math has also been a daily activity. Room 4 is looking forward to having a fun year learning.

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be spending a lot of time outdoors. We hope to experience and learn about nature. There is always enough screen time; now we will enjoy the surround sound beauty that nature will offer us. We'll share pictures as we shift our learning outdoors. Staty tuned.

Rooms 11 and 12 are proud to present Spirit Week March 21-24, 2016! We are raising money for D’Arcy’s A.R.C, a no kill animal shelter located at 730B Century St. D’Arcy’s A.R.C rescues animals from the streets, homelessness and from situations of abuse. Every animal rescued at D’Arcy’s A.R.C gets neutered or spayed, and is seen by a veterinarian to make sure they are healthy and safe.
Sabre Saves presents Spirit Week!

All week long we will be having a kitty litter drive. D’Arcy’s A.R.C uses a lot of kitty litter, and this issomething they need all of the time. Please send in a bag of clumping, unscented kitty litter and we will bring it all to D’Arcy’s A.R.C.
Prices for our treats are the minimum price, but if you want to pay more and help donate more money, that would be awesome! The more money we raise, the more we can help the animals at D’Arcy’s A.R.C.
We have been working very hard to plan and prepare for this week, and are so excited. Thank you for all of your support!
