Welcome back to our first full week of February. We will have an author visiting us Monday morning. Peter Clark will be entertaining students in the gymnasium with stories and poems from his books.
Wednesday is Global Play Day/Winter Walk Day. We will be going sliding after lunch (weather permitting). The school has 15 sleds on hand. Students are encourage to bring their own if they choose.
Friday will be hat day. Students who choose to wear their hat must pay $1. Monies raised will go towards the gr 8 field trip.
*** Please ensure white homework binders are brought to school on Mondays for student’s weekly work and reading bags daily ***
French – This week’s oral structures will be a review of our last unit about “What makes us unique.” Throughout, students will begin to write following a model presented by myself. Our next unit will be all about animals and pets.
Guided reading will also take place with myself during our Daily 5. Whilst a group is reading, others will be working in various centers. Students will receive new book within a 4 day cycle to be brought home along with their new sound and song/poem sheet of the week.
Math – This week will serve as a review for our addition and subtraction unit. Test on Friday. We will be moving on to multiplication and division.
Health – We continue to look at how we can take care of ourselves with an introduction to the theme (i.e. eat healthy, be active, etc.) We will also be talking about emotions and feelings.
Please refer to our school website regularly for important information and postings. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. I will respond via phone call as promptly as I can. Let’s have a great week! Cheers :)
