LA: OLYMPIC UNIT!!!!!!
Math: Our study of multiplication and division has begun! Please practice these facts (up to 9x9) nightly to get them memorozed. We are learning many tricks to help us learn these easily.
Social: Social in grade 4 is all about our incredible province: ALBERTA! Natural resources quiz Monday Feb. 10th. Then we start to look at the people of Alberta starting with Alberta's First Nations people.
