Extra Clothes Needed: Students are coming in wet after lunch from the snow. They will often want to change into dry clothes and take off their wet socks. Please send dry clothes with your child so he/she can have something warm and dry to put on. I do feel sorry for them to be in bare feet because their sock feet are wet and yucky.
This week in our class:
We are getting ready for Read Around the Planet (Feb 28) next week. I have asked the children to bring a colourful winter scarf and a mittens for our piece. We will also present Kooky Kookaburra from our choir repertoire for this video conference.
Wednesday: Our new student teachers will be coming to visit. After spring break we will be having 2 new student teachers come and spend two full weeks in our class. One candidate is a drama specialist!!!! They will be teaching a few science and math lessons. This week they will be coming just to meet our students and see what our class is like.
Thursday: Is our gymnastics morning. Thank-you to our many drivers that have volunteered. We will be leaving @ 8:45 am. All students are required to have a booster seat for this field trip. I will not be allowing students to travel in anyone's vehicle without it. Please also ensure your child comes dressed in comfortable gym clothes. Blue jeans are not allowed.
Thursday afternoon Ms. Boyer will be coming into our class to do a special First Nations project with our class on the Medicine Wheel.
Friday: Remember Friday is our district wide Inservice Day. There will not be school for our students on this day.
Next Friday (Mar.2) I would like to have students make Vegetable soup in our class. This is a concluding activity to our "Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds" unit in HACE. Students will be asked to bring in a small contribution of vegetable that we can put into our soup. I am wondering if there might be a parent available for the morning to help with this activity. Students will be chopping their own vegetables. Please let me know if you'd like to come in and join us on this morning.
