Today’s math centers are:
1. Math with technology: students will be using the ipads and ipods to create an “ebook” about “plus grand”. During centres, I will send two groups of students into the school with our mascots Coco and Biscuit to take pictures of things that are “plus grand que”. Students will return to the classroom to stitch their photos together into a book.
Math by myself: students will complete an addition worksheet.
3. Math with someone: students will use manipulatives and their math journals to create addition stories.
4. Math games: there are two today: addition war and addition tenzie

Today my students scored a pretty fun afternoon, and I’m pretty pleased with the results of their work. After spending some time on Pinterest, I was inspired to adapt this art project for my students’ work with the Grade 4 curriculum’s unit on rocks and minerals and the Grade 5 curriculum’s unit on weather.
This lesson covered so much: science, language arts, art perspective.
One of my students even remarked: Mme! We’re having fun, but we’re learning, too!
The students traced their hands and feet, then they drew their faces and bodies. Students were required to include three rock samples and one cloud sample, all of which could be identified by a viewer. After drawing, students outlined their work with a sharpie and painted with water colour. Finally, students blogged their rock and cloud samples and a QR code posted next to their work takes viewers to their site.
I loved this project and I think students were pretty pleased too!
