Yesterday our class went on a field trip to Treaty Four. I would like to say a big congratulations to my class for winning the Game Show against SEVEN other schools! We were the youngest class there with the fewest number of students and we kicked butt!! Ask your child about it! It was a fun but very hectic day as some of the students had TOO much energy. Hopefully we will be able to get some parent/caregiver volunteers for swimming!
Reading Effects with Brenda Olliver started today. I am very excited to have the students that are just learning to read or struggling with reading to be working with Brenda in small groups. They will learn so much from her!
In Grade 2 math, we completed our pattern squares. The students were asked to make a different type of pattern in each square. It had to be an increasing, decreasing or repeating pattern. They could use shape patterns, picture patterns, number patterns, letter patterns or colour patterns, but they all had to be different. Having a review this morning, I could not believe how much the students have learned! I was very impressed!
After the last recess I went down to get the snack as the students were getting settled. I didn't tell the students to be quiet or get into their desks before I left, figuring I would just let them do their thing while I was busy. I came back and everyone was in their desks with their heads down and completely quiet. I walked into the room and my jaw dropped. I told them how impressed I was with them taking the initiative to do that. I even told the Vice Prinicipal while she when she came into our classroom!
MORE hand outs going home. Apologies for bombarding you with information and paper!
Book orders are coming soon!
