Before morning recess all of IREC came together in the gym to kick off our annual Terry Fox fundraiser. Mr.W and several Gr.4 MCs spoke to us, and we also watched a video explaining Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope. Miss Marburg’s Grade 4 class presented a poem for the school as well. Please make sure to read through the information that came home in your child’s backpack today. There is also a pledge form included; our school goal is to raise $5000 for the Terry Fox Foundation for cancer research!
Today in math we focused on even and odd numbers. After looking at a 100 chart and finding patterns for the even and odd numbers (skip counting, etc.), we concluded that we only have to look at the ones digit to decide if a number is even or odd. The 2Js practiced identifying even and odd numbers together as a class, and then they individually showed their understanding by doing some seat work as well as completing an ixl.com lesson.
