Just a reminder that this Friday is an early closure date for Parent/ Teacher Interviews. Dismissal will be at 12:30 pm. If you would like to schedule an interview with me on this day, please feel free to send me a little note in your child's agenda. If you could also give me a range of times so I can schedule a time that is available (Thanks!). I will also be contacting families if I have a concern or if I feel a need to meet.
This week we have begun a measurement unit in Math. Students today discovered it takes 114 unifix cubes to measure the height of our classroom doors! Height, Width and Length were the math words of the day! Students will continue this unit this week and more with our student teachers next week.
In Social Studies we are now learning about British Columbia. We will be mapping the major rivers and lakes in our province. Our student teachers will continue this series with a focus on the coastal BC and the rainforests. Please save your paper towel rolls. Only students that have brought them in will be able to make a rainstick. Each student will need at least 3 rolls. Please feel free to start sending these in and we can put your child's name on them.
In Science we are beginning to learn about clouds and the water cycle.
Emily Carr will be our Artist of the Week for the next little while. We will have some fun painting trees to go with our social studies and science themes.
In reading we are continuing to read and learn about fairy tales and folk tales.
In writing we are working on Poetry writing and students are just starting a publishing project making a Spring Poetry Book. This will involve making rough copies, proofreading and writing good copies of their original poems. It will be a lot of work but a beautiful keepsake when it is done!
Health & Career right now is all about Safety. We will soon start this unit requiring students to understand safety in our community and safety in our homes.
Well I think that may be all for this week. Please feel free to contact me at the school if you have any questions or concerns. I'm happy
