We’ve had a super busy week and are preparing for another busy week to come! Read to see what we’ve been up to and what’s happening next week!
-Baby spider plants have been repotted in repurposed milk cartons and have been added with a pretty cute spider! I hope they all made in to their new homes safely!!
-We have completed 17 green screen projects to represent ourselves as Super Flex and 3 more are waiting to be green screened. We are waiting for the final few background illustrations to come in so we can finish the project. If you have not completed your green screen background please do so we can get the green screen set up again and finish up.
-We are in our final round of Common Learning Times for this cycle! We will finish up on Wednesday and then redo our initial diagnostic assessment. The following week we will begin book clubs with 122 & 126 during the same time slot on Days 2,4,6.
-We are working on Mental Math strategies and developing instant recall for basic addition and subtraction facts. Have flashcards at home? Check to see if your child is able to name these basic facts in three seconds or less!!
-We are also learning more about Canadian provinces & territories and their capital cities as well as where they are located on a map of Canada! The Ask Me Question for this weekend is to do some research on a province or territory (with the exception of Manitoba as we did that one together!). Check Seesaw for more details!
-Now that Hallowe’en is over we will be focussing on Remembrance Day and peace. The schools Remembrance Day assembly will take place on Friday, November 8. You are welcome to join us at 11:00 if you are able.
-Did you know that the carpets are getting taken out at school?! Room 123 is scheduled to have ours done on Wednesday and Thursday (Nov 6&7). We will be spending our time in the library and the MPR as well as in the great outdoors!!! *The 3/4 team is going to Assiniboine Forest on Wednesday, November 6 in the afternoon! We will leave shortly after 1:00 and return just before 3:30!! You will get a reminder early next week, but please know that students are asked to dress for the weather, bring a snack and a bottle of water. We are looking forward to our first Friuluftsliv forest exploration of the year!!!
