We have been busy in our classroom!

Division 5 has been working hard this spring.  I have received most of the poetry projects we have been working on and they look fantastic.  My grade 4/5 class has written odes, haikus, diamantes, and bio poems.  They also wrote a poem about their favourite colour and described it based on the five senses.  There are some very creative kids in my class!  In social studies we have been doing the explorers and New France.   One of the more engaging activities we did with this was use an app on the ipads called Haiku Deck to create really cool presentations.  It was a neat way to demonstrate their knowledge.  Next week we are going to teach this app to our kindergarten little buddies.  Below is a picture of a caravel.  The students each wrote a paragraph about an explorer and sketched a picture too!  This is the type of ship John Cabot would have sailed on to reach Canada.
