This Christmas, make your words mean something!

All year you have been guided to complete various writing tasks and in various genres. But when you write a Christmas card to a family member, friend or teacher…it’s all over to you.

Writing a card is an open-ended task where you get to let someone in on how thankful you are, how you value them, something you enjoyed sharing and many more thoughts from your year with that person.

So today when you complete your writing tasks…..make your Christmas Card writing mean something! Christmas Card Reading then, Christmas_Cards.

The Cartesian Plane

Watch with Miss Tomat:

In your gridbooks, write a maths vocabulary list titled, The Cartesian Plane. When you have finished, you can define your words. Eg,

A coordinate plane is an important tool for working with these equations. It is formed by a horizontal number line, called the x-axis, and a vertical number line, called the y-axis. The two axes intersect at a point called the origin.

 

Consider this…the ORIGIN can be thought of as the centre of the soccer field where the ball is placed at the start of the game.
