Welcome back to school!
It has been so nice to see old friends and meet new friends.
I am looking forward to another great year at Westmoreland!

Here is a look at some of the things we will learn about this first month of school:

In Grade 3, we begin by establishing an active and collaborative learning environment. We review how to use a variety of math tools to solve problems, tell time to the nearest minute and use mathematical models to calculate elapsed time. We engage in activities which help create a strong foundation for developing multiplication and division strategies.  

In Grade 4, we start the year with an exploration of place-value concepts for multi-digit whole numbers. We use U.S. traditional addition and subtraction to add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers.

In Grade 5, we will build on prior knowledge of area and explore ways to find the area of rectangles with fractional side lengths. We will also learn about volume as an attribute of solid figures. We will explore volume and build toward using cubic units and volume formulas.

Have a great September!
