I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Years, only 3 more days of holiday and then back to school on Monday. I am very excited to be planning our next thematic unit of Fractured Fairy Tales where we will read, make connections, analyze, creative write, and bring our very own character to life using sewing skills for ADST (Applied Design). Speaking of which… I am looking for parent/grandparent volunteers to come in next Friday to help get us started with our sewing project. So if any of your parents can help out even for a short time, I would really appreciate extra hands on Friday Jan. 12th. over the lunch break 11:45 – 12:20. If they want to stay longer into the afternoon they are welcome to stay and help all of you practice your stitching technique. Please ask your parents and let me know who I can expect.
Enjoy the rest of your Christmas holiday!
Hello, school district 41 has changed the blog address to the following: http://sd41blogs.ca/mcdonalds
Please update your bookmarks or browser as you will not be able to get to the blogsite from the old address. Thank you! Mrs. McDonald
Thanks for letting me watch that funny movie with you, I loved Hoodwinked. Granny was my favourite. Did you guys like the movie? Ohhh…I thought I saw your teacher write in her dayplan for next week something about a POP QUIZ on medieval times???? Wonder what that’s about? Hope you’re having a nice weekend.
I can’t believe you guys earned a class party, that should be super fun. I think Mrs. McDonald thought she would beat you and you would never get to 25 points. I love that you proved her wrong 🙂 Are you watching a movie? I wonder what movie it will be? If you are, can I watch it with you?
PS. By the way, your kingdoms are looking EPIC! Don’t say anything but I think they just might beat Mrs. Scott’s class in a medieval battle.
I have to admit I was super disappointed that only 2 people commented on my post, I thought I was very clever having figured out how to hack into Mrs. McDonald’s blog…lol. She had no idea! If you do your homework you will be pleasantly surprised tomorrow morning, I promise 🙂 I think Mrs. McDonald is so smart since she figured out how to blog in very little time 😉
PS. I am dreaming of my beach vacation with Lucia, wouldn’t it be cool to meet this crew?
Your child should be challenging themselves to read chapter books and non-fiction books in grade 4. The Burnaby District Library is a great place to start as they have an excellent selection of levelled books. If you are interested, you should check out this Grade 4 recommended book list compiled by ‘Goodreads’.
Reading 40 min./day is the expectation for this age level.
Welcome! This is all very new to me so please be patient as I am working out kinks and hoping that this is a time-worthy experiment. Please be sure to sign up for the newsletter with your email address so you can be in the loop of important information coming your way.
Thank you for your support!

Wow! That was quite the performance of Snow White. What was your favourite part?
This ties in with our Fractured Fairy Tale unit beginning in Term 2.
Dear students, I am so excited to be dropping in on your classroom to see what you are up to. I have had a busy December so far, it started with a ski trip to Whistler with a friend and then I arrived to you. I was a little sad that your teacher was trying to mess with my magic but I see she understands now. I went away on a trip with my friend Lucia and we had a blast! I hope to see some more of your incredible Kingdom building over the next few weeks.
PS. Mrs. Scott’s class welcomed me and I am excited to maybe go on a few more trips? I wonder where I should go? Do you have any suggestions? I kind of love snow and beaches.
