If you can volunteer to help run a science station next Thursday morning please let Mr. B or Mrs. Fletcher know. Thanks!
Our 1st spelling test of the year will be on Thursday, October 26th. The word lists and instructions on how to sign into Spelling City were sent home last Thursday. I encourage you to practice these words with your child this week. We will be signing into this program in the computer lab to complete our assessment. Please access the following link to see the lists again or find a fun learning game to play!
Writer's Workshop with the focus on narrative writing. We have strategies such as writing partners, heart maps, the tiny notebook, and the five finger planning tool to help us S-T-R-E-T-C-H out our small moment writing.
Daily independent reading to help us build stamina. The students LOVE to read to their friends and book buddies and enjoy visiting our learning commons and Bookmobile. Ask your child if they know what text features are and if they can give you an example out of our big book "Inuksuks- A Guide to Artic Canada".
We have been very busy practicing skip counting (getting ready for multiplication), learning about odd and even numbers, double digit addition, ordinal numbers, problem solving, and a class favourite: Number of the Day.
Mapping and all about Canada. Ask your child how many Provinces and Territories we have in Canada. I bet they can even name some capital cities!
"Kids in the Know" with Mr. B and Mindfulness with Ms. Oviatt. We have really been focusing kindness and how to treat others and be a nice friend at school.
We have been busy learning lots and working hard. Thank you for your support with reading 15 minutes a night at home! Spelling lists are on their way home very soon. For now ask your child to show you how to sign into Spelling City and practice playing a few spelling games on your computer or phone. Storyline Online is also a nice way to do home reading to change it up!
We need at least 6 parent volunteers to join us! The pool and school board have a strict ratio of the # of adults to kids. Please let me know if you are able to help us and return the permission slip by Friday, October 6th. Thank you for helping us out! Next Thursday, October 12th we will leave the school at 8:45am and walk to Stan Siwik Pool. We will swim until 11am and then walk back in time for the 11:47am lunch bell.
