We had a very productive day today in the classroom! Students were able to catch up on some work in math and do their final tests on number patterns. The test will go home signed next week. I had some students away today and some students need extra time.

Starting on Thursday, our focus in math will be about the measurement of time. Elapsed time will be our main focus for this unit. It's a short unit. I am hoping that the skills they picked up in number patterns will help them to figure out the passage of time through problem solving.

There is no homework for math on Thursday.

__Reminder:__
Please ensure that your child has enough supplies, especially pencils, a pencil sharpener, and erasers for class. There are still quite a few students who are not coming to class ready for learning.
We will be having a __final test on number patterns next Tuesday, November 28th__.
The following are what to be expected on the test:

-Identifying, creating and extending number patterns
-Describing a pattern rule
-Find the missing term
-Using a t-chart to problem solve
-Attributes that change in a pattern (i.e., size, shape, direction)

Students can:
-practice using the links over to the right to practice (under 'Number Patterns')
-practice on Math Prodigy (I will assign some practice in there until next week)
-ask for a textbook to loan for home use

**Reminder:**
**Each student is asked to write 15 questions at home - not including the ones that were done at school. Each group is required to have a total of 50 questions.**
It was nice to have met most parents on parent-teacher interview night. Thank you for being supportive!

This is a reminder that students are asked to write 15 questions **each** by this Friday, November 24th. The goal is to have 50 questions written in total - 15 from each group member and 5 questions were to be written in class last week as an introduction. This will be part of the media grade for first term.

Students can access their file by using their Google drive from their OCSB student portal from home. I put a link to the right in case you need it.

Thank you!
