Math 

We have started our second unit in Math. The central idea for this unit is Systems for measurement and data collection allow mathematicians to solve problems and share findings.

The Lines of Inquiry are:

 

  • measurement and data collection
  • the relationship between the decimal system and the metric system
  • converting measurements to solve real-world problems

 

Here’s how you can help at home.

Unit of Inquiry

We spent this short week introducing our 2nd unit of Inquiry, Where We are in Place and time. As part of our provocation activity, students were given choices on what activities they would like to participate in. They were then asked to reflect on their experience.

  • What happened?
  • How did you feel during the provocation?
  • How did you feel after the provocation?
  • Why did we do it?

Students will be recording and reflecting on their thinking throughout the unit using Book Creator. We will also be reading the book, Refugee in class. This is available on https://www.getepic.com/ at school.  This is just one of the resources for students to have a better understanding of the unit.

Message from the PTO:
The PTO Elementary School Craft Fair is coming this Saturday, October 12th, from 12:00-3:00 pm in the South Cafeteria and Student Lounge.  This is always a very popular event for our ES students, who get the opportunity to make lots of different crafts in one afternoon.  We invite all ES families to attend.

In addition, the Craft Fair is a volunteer-run even and we are still looking for parents to assist on the day.  No experience or crafting abilities are needed!  Hoping you can support this event, our PTO and our Community at AAS, by signing up being a volunteer. Here is the link to sign up:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f4eaead2da2f94-craft1

Many thanks from your PTO Craft Fair Team!
