Grade 4/5 and 1N classes are reading buddies. Every week, students share books and practice reading with their buddy.

Kindergarten students ventured out on their first field trip to the pumpkin patch at Southlands Farms. Students took part in tasting grapes off the vine, viewing a bumble bee and hive up close, and interacting with farm animals. Children particularly enjoyed petting and feeding horses, goats, and chickens! Students will be applying their observations on this field trip to their learning about the pumpkin life cycle in science.

 

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving from the staff and students at Pythagoras Academy! Enjoy this day with family and friends.



Grade 2 Students Love Math  – Inspiring Story

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In order to gain a deep understanding of mathematical concepts, students need to engage with the material in a variety of ways. Please take a look at some

of the ways grade 2 students have been developing their number sense so far this year.

Grade 2 students worked together to create a humungous hundreds chart!

This learning activity gave students the opportunity to look at different patterns on the hundreds chart, practice skip counting, and discuss place value. It is
important for students to have concrete experiences in math class. Grade 2 students built their own groups of tens and ones, using objects such as
centimetre cubes, counters, straws, and popsicle sticks.

 

 
 
Playing games is an important and valuable part of math class. Math games, such as this game about comparing numbers, give students the chance to
practice a skill and discuss their thinking with a partner.
In this game, students each rolled a die and compared their numbers. They practiced writing
the symbols for greater than, less than, and equal to.
