Peter Rabbit

 Everybody knows and loves Peter Rabbit.

It is hard to believe that he is 112 years old!

Published by Beatrix Potter in 1902, children (and adults) can relate to this naughty and mischievous little bunny. If only Peter had listened to his mother ….

                                  Have fun learning about Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit.

Doubles

1 + 1 = 2         2 + 2 = 4         3 + 3 = 6        4 + 4 = 8         5 + 5 = 10

              6 + 6 = 12        7 + 7 = 14         8 + 8 = 16       9 + 9 = 18   

                                                              10 + 10 = 20

Learning our “doubles” facts is a helpful math strategy (and fun too!)

Mrs. Brancati found some doubles you might recognize:

The Symphony Orchestra

 Lucky us!

Thanks to our P.A.C. on Thursday (Feb.26) we will be visiting the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver to attend a special concert of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO).

Many of us have never been to the symphony.

Welcome to the Year of the Horse!

Division 9 spent some time this week discovering about the celebration of Chinese New Year!

It is a holiday rich in cultural traditions. We had fun learning about some of the traditions and symbols.

 

 

What did you and your family do for Chinese New Year?

Remembrance Day

The students from Division 9 were busy  last week preparing for our school’s assembly.

• We read books

•We memorized a poem

•We learned a song

•We made a wreath

•We painted poppies and peace signs

•We talked about how Remembrance Day is important to us

The assembly was very touching and thought-provoking.

We were reminded of all the sacrifices peacekeepers have made on our behalf.

Our song, Leave the World a Little Bit Better (by Charlotte Diamond) reminded all of us about what we can do.

Lest We Forget …

Ten Frames and Subitizing

Do you know what Ten Frames are?

Division 9 has been working on their subitizing skills by learning to recognize the numbers 1-10 on 10-Frames.

Subitizing is recognizing a “number”  without having to count.

We have been playing 10-Frame Flash and One More.

Developing a solid understanding of “10ness” will be an important goal this year.

For practice (and fun) you can play :   a Ten-Frame game

Today we played a “matching” game with mini 10-frames.
