ANNOUNCEMENT

Hello parents/guardians, 

  We are working hard at wrapping up our assignments and units for term 1 this week. That means next week we will be engaged in fun learning activities before we go on winter break. Please ensure you are connecting with your child to ensure they are completing projects and assignments in a timely manner, so they do not loose the privilege of fun activities. 

I will continue to use the homepage to communicate classroom updates, weekly homework, and important dates, so please check on a daily basis.

If Home Due To Illness or Other Absence (Updated between 2pm-3pm on Mondays)

  • Read 30 min. - read a book/magazine, comic, newspaper, etc. each day and tell a parent/guardian what they read. Parent/guardian can ask questions about the reading to ensure their child can comprehend and understand what they had read.
  • Spelling words/Sight words- as you wait for your spelling words to come home, each day pick 10 different sight words (list in their planners) and write a sentence for each word. If not sure what the word means then the students can look up the word in a dictionary (https://kids.britannica.com/kids/browse/dictionary)
  • Writing- Keep a book to write in each day. They should be writing for a minimum of 30 minutes each day.

Language Arts- The students are reviewing reading strategies (connecting, visualizing, questioning, inferring, and transforming) while we read various picture books. In writing we are learning about physical and character traits as we create and write about our gingerbread characters.  Also, the students will be practicing some Christmas spelling words these last couple of weeks. 

Science- The students have completed their games and had a chance to play them in class. We have completed our unit and activities for this term.

Social and Personal Responsibilities- This will be ongoing learning throughout the school year. We all have jobs and responsibilities in the classroom and school. These allow us to learn and practice leaderships skills. Also, we will continue to work on adding mindful strategies to keep ourselves calm and learning most of the time.
