Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

Here is our  Sept 18-22 week at a glance!

The kids got a little extra time off last Monday while we were hard at work learning more about blogging and the power of being connected with families!

Throughout the rest of the week we:

-did a Number Puzzle together to go through another example of what it means to show your thinking for each style of question. Then we did another puzzle in our own and while more students are showing how they got the answer in a way that I can follow their thought process, we still need reminders and practice. This is a good opportunity for the students to try one at home and see if the parents can follow their thinking by looking at their “work”!

-watched our first Mathantics video to help remind us/teach us more about Place Value. We also started to work on our Number Concepts books as part of our Place Value practice

-finished typing The Best Part of Me write ups, put up the collaborative dots and did some self reflections using water colour paint…ALL of which are ready for you to see on Monday at Meet the Teacher!!! Please come see us, even if you didn’t order pizza. I’ll be in the room at 6 and would love to see you!!

-spent some time outside with Room 122 during Outdoor Ed/Move It time AND with our buddies from 124! We really needed to take advantage of the beautiful weather and sunshine while we could!! There are so many benefits to being outside and I’m so glad to work in a school that encourages us to spent time outdoors 🙂

-we did our first 2 sessions in our Words Their Way groups. Once we are done with these words they will be sent home for you to continue to use at home. You can have your child show you how they are sorted any why they are sorted that way. You can use them to write sentences or even do a spelling quiz!

-we also had our first session with Murray! From now until the Winter Break we will have “Inquiry Murray” time on Days 1, 3, 5 from 2:30-3:30

*Ask Me…: the Ask Me question for this weekend is to write/draw some wonderings for our field trip on Monday. This field trip is going to be what shapes our Inquiry…which is why we haven’t talked much about Rocks and Minerals yet!

Looking Ahead!

-Field Trip to Mariash Quarry on Monday, September 25!! We will be leaving at 9:30 and returning at 3:15. Please bring a litterless lunch. Thank you for 25/25 permission slips and thank you to our parent volunteers! It’s going to be a great day! My weather app says 10 degrees and cloudy. Please dress for the weather!

-Meet the Teacher! Monday evening!!! Your children are looking forward to showing you the class and I’m there to chat and answer questions you may have. Can’t make it?? Let me know if you’d like to swing by after school one day!!

-Thursday: Terry Fox Run.

Join us at school for the run if you can! You can also send a donation to the Terry Fox Foundation if you’ like. As a school we will do a collection and send in our donation.

-Friday is Orange Shirt Day. Please wear orange to show support for Residential School Survivors.

Enjoy your weekend!!! See you next week 🙂

Until next time,
