LA: We begin our final unit of the year - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We continue to work on our reading and writing skills through a novel study.
Math: We now understand fractions and decimals and are now adding and subtracting decimals - especially in relation to money.
Social: We are now looking at the stories of the people that shaped Alberta. We are looking at Alberta's past from fur traders and explorers to important people that shaped Alberta.
