A note from Alexis, Alex, and Wael about their Grade 6 Exhibition project on Child Neglect - Dear parents/ guardians,
We are Grade 6 students doing a project called exhibition. Our topic is child neglect. For our action we chose to do a clothing donation for the children that may have experienced neglect in our community. We will be donating all of the gently used clothing to the CAS and local charities. If you would like to donate any gently used clothing please place them in the box labeled Clothing Donations for the CAS and surrounding charities. It can be found by the SJA side door where you come into the school in the morning. The last day to make a donation is Wednesday, April 25.

We also had a farewell party for Ms. Celeste who is officially done her placement and officially finished college on Friday. We are sad to see her go!!

We are ready to rock n roll!!

Miss Eva rocking it on stage!

Rajan's turn on stage!

M. Foaud's turn to play the drum sticks!

The finale!

Thank you Ms. Celeste...we will miss you!!

Today we took up the homework from last night and worked through some questions that caused us to struggle.  

Fractions and Decimals:

Fractions and decimals:

Comparing Fractions:

Lowest Common Denominator

Key points to remember:

Numerator is the number on the top part of the fraction.

Denominator is the number on the bottom part of the fraction.

A proper fraction is a fraction where the smaller number is the numerator and a bigger number is the denominator. For example, ½, 3/5, 5/8.

An improper fraction is when the numerator has a bigger number and the denominator has a smaller number. For example, 12/7.

A mixed number has both a whole number and a fraction. For example, 1 ¼.

Cross-multiplication - we begin by multiplying the first numerator with the second denominator. Then we multiply the first denominator with the second numerator. For example; 3/5 and 2/4. We multiply 3 x 4 =12 and 5 x 2 = 10. Our new fractions are now 12/5 and 10/4. Whichever fraction has the bigger numerator is the bigger fraction, so from our example 3/5 is greater than (>) 2/4. For fractions that have the same denominator we do not have to do anything but look at the numerators.

Fractions to decimals - 3/10 = 0.3, 15/100 = .15, 125/100 = 1.25. We also need to keep in mind that we can covert simple fractions as well. For example; ¼ - .25, ¾ = .75, 4/5 = .80.  Remember to keep things out of 10 and 100! We can also put mixed numbers into decimals as well. For example; 2 ½ = 2.5, 2 ¾ = 2.75.
