Library Books Due

We have new Spelling Words! We also have THREE groups for spelling.  Ask your child what group they are in.

Group 1 Words are - hill, bell, fell, ball, fall

Group 2 Words are - no, go, going, most, kind, find, gave, so, do, doing

Group 3 Words are - said, ask, stand, catch, eight, afraid, away, always, playing, waved, takes, than, great, they, prey

Go over your child's list with them each day. They should be practicing these words every day at home. We practice them at school too, but the more practice the better. If you feel their list is too difficult for them, have a conversation with them about it and write me an email about it. We will make it work.

If you need help with ideas on how to practice spelling feel free to pop in and ask me or shoot me an email.

Physical Education
We have started our Gymnastics Unit in PE. Swimming will be sometime in February.
No earrings, bracelets, rings or necklaces. 
Long hair must be tied back - no exceptions
Shirts must be tucked in - no dresses for the next couple weeks

This afternoon we played on Mathletics. Do you play Mathletics at home? Ask your child to show you what they are doing. 

Keep up the home reading. It is important that students read everyday. If you have lost their home reading folder and books, please send me a note and $5 to cover the cost of books. 

Reminders:
-Scholastic Book Orders came home today. They are due January 23rd. Go through with your child to find some great books for them. 
-Library Books Due Tomorrow

Happy New Year!

Is it just me or did that break just fly by? Maybe it didn't fly by fast enough for you ;)

I cannot wait to see you all bright and early Monday morning. A reminder that we have our field trip on Wednesday the 10th. Field Trip forms and payment need to be in ASAP! Please let me know if you need another form.

Enjoy your last day :)

1 more day to go!

2017 has been good to us! We hope you have a lovely break!

Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzza!

Today we have talked about Christmas. It is the last holiday we are celebrating in Room 4. We read a couple stories about the first Christmas and some students had A LOT of questions! Talk with your child to share your beliefs with them, there were many questions I couldn't answer without sharing my own beliefs.

This afternoon we sang holiday songs. Tomorrow morning we will sing some more. Please join us at 9:10-9:40am to bring in some holiday spirit! My favourite song today was, Driedel!

During Mathletics time, we worked on graphing. When we come back from break in January we will finish up our unit on Graphing.

Also a HUGE reminder that we need to have all field trip forms in before we go! If your child is not attending please send me an email so I know.

Thanks :)

Today was our first day without Ms. Yu. We've gotten so used to haven her here! We can't wait for her to come back on February 20th, 2018.

Today Mrs. Nelson let us rearrange our desks and sit wherever we wanted!!! We did 2 rows facing the smart board and 1 on the side.

We read a story about Hanukkah and listened to the dreidel song. Then we read a story called Mosseltoe! So funny!

We worked on some math facts, did our Spelling quiz from last week and then went to music!

In PE today we played a snow ball game! It was fun cause we can't normally throw snowballs at school!

This afternoon we did a measuring activity! We are working on problem solving and different graphs. We leaned about bar and pie graphs, and a little about a line graph and pictograph! More on those later.

Have a wonderful evening!

Goodbye Ms. Yu

Tomorrow, Friday December 15th, is Ms. Yu's last day with us in 2017. Don't worry she will be back in February 2018 for 8 whole weeks. We will miss Ms. Yu very much, but are excited for her to come back next year. I think we will need to put a gift from the students together next April. If a parent would like to head that up I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks so much!

How adorable were your kids last night? They had such a great time preparing their songs and dance for you. Thank you for all your support!

Ask your child what they did for Social Studies. They may not know they were actually learning, he he we are so sneaky! They learned about Inukshuks and we practiced balancing rocks. In the new year, we will create our own Inukshuks.
