This week we are viewing one of Quebec's most well-known children's movies called "La guerre des tuques" (which translates roughly to "The War of the Toques"). While the original was produced in 1984, this famous story of an epic snowball war between two groups of children was remade in 2015. We will be watching parts in English and other parts in French. For those who are interested in watching at home, the English version is called "Snowtime" and is available on iTunes.
Last weeks Math homework (one sheet adding fractions) is due tomorrow.
Students have another worksheet to do for adding fractions due on Thursday March 23rd. There is a picture of the worksheet below. Please show all of your work and use a lined piece of paper if you need.
There will be a test on adding and subtracting fractions on Friday March 24th very similar to the worksheets coming home.
Students are working through adding and subtracting fractions. Please see the following link to see how we are learning.
This link has videos and additional practice questions.
The math homework is due Tuesday March 21st. Students MUST show their work and it is recommended they use lined paper.
