Thank you to everyone who drove and helped supervise on Friday!  We had a great day and learned many new things 🙂

Please remember to send the Read-a-thon envelopes back tomorrow as well as the paper with their total of minutes/hours read.

Thank you!

Thank you!

Thank you!

We have enough drivers now to make the trip to MOA!

This week students have been working hard on their Savais-tu? books, reading their books for their book reports, and reading another book starring Mlle Charlotte.

In math, grade 3 students have been doing a review and grade 4 students have been learning how to multiply larger numbers.

Thank you so much for volunteering to drive!  I need one more parent please!  I have 6 more students that need rides.

This week, the range was from 0 to +15.  No one lost any money!!

Thank you for sending in coffee cups (disposable kind)!

The money earned this week ranged from -5 to +6 but for most of the class it was an improvement.  Bravo!

We started Savais-tu? books and they are looking amazing!  I can’t wait to see them completed but I know that they take some time to complete and that they are worth the wait.

We chose books for our next novel study (English for grade 4s and grade 3s can choose).  They will be due at the end of May (some students chose some very long books!)

So far I have room for 9 students to go to MOA. I am hoping to hear back from more parents soon so please let me know as soon as possible if you can drive.

Thank you!

 

This week

Please let me know ASAP if you are able to drive to MOA on May 11th and how many students you can bring with you.  I have since learned that all adults are welcome to join the field trip (thank you Gwylin!).

What are we working on?

Math: 4’s are learning about decimals and 3’s are doing some review

P.E.: we are doing some track activities

Art: we worked with charcoal and learned about lighting and tone

We will be making Savais-tu? books!!  Students will research an animal (or living thing) and make a book in the style of the very popular Savais-tu? books you may have seen.  

Can you please send disposable coffee cups for an upcoming art projects?  One per student should be enough.  Medium or Large size

Thank you!

Also the range for the money earned is from 0 to 12.

Welcome back!

I hope everyone had a restful break!  

A couple of classes are planning a field trip to MOA on May 11th.  In order to go we will need parent drivers so I am asking now if there are drivers willing to drive students to the Museum of Anthropology (and back) on May 11th.  Not all drivers will be able to attend the field trip at no charge.  I will figure that part out if we have enough drivers and if all the drivers want to attend.  Please send a note in the agenda or a quick email letting me know if you can drive, how many students you could take, and if you want to attend the field trip or not.

Thanks in advance!

Before Spring Break

Written By: setov - Mar• 12•18

It was wonderful to see students sharing their work at the Student-led Conferences. Thank you to everyone who came in to celebrate their learning.

Thank you also to Lianne for coming in and sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for engineering.  The students had a great time working together toward their challenges and are looking forward to seeing you again!

We were very busy this week so I didn’t have a chance to do their totals for the bank.  I will try to do it this week but it’s also a fun-filled week!

Student-led Conferences

Written By: setov - Mar• 04•18

Student-led Conferences will be held on Wednesday, March 7th and Thursday, March 8th from 2pm to 4:30pm.   In addition, on Thursday morning, during the Reading in the Dark activities from 9am until 10am.  If you plan on coming on Thursday morning, please let me know in advance so that I can keep your child in class to facilitate the student-led conference.  Otherwise, it is an open house style as your child will be leading the conference.

There seemed to be more effort this week to speak French in class.  Thank you!  I believe it ranged from -12 to +14.

 

End of February

Written By: setov - Feb• 26•18

I missed a few weeks…and they were busy!!

We have been working on fractions in Math, gymnastics in PE, and speeches for Français.  We are working on self-assessments around Core Competencies in preparation for the 2nd term reports.  

For second term, I am going to have student-led conferences with a quick (celebratory in nature) conference (issues or concerns can be discussed separately at a later date).  I will be sending home report cards as well.

You may have noticed a positive or negative number in your child’s agenda.  This is the amount they earned or lost for the week for speaking French in class.  I will try to include the range in the weekly blog post so you can better gauge how your child is doing.  Last week there were many negatives so I’m hoping that by including parents into the system it will help students to try to speak French more often in class.

Thank you!

Looking forward to March 🙂

This week and next

Written By: setov - Feb• 02•18

We have been working on landforms and animal adaptations and classifications.  We will discuss it further next week as there is more to learn!

We will be doing gymnastics for P.E. for the rest of February which means students will be bare foot.  Please try to avoid tights that cover their feet or send a change of clothes so that students can participate.

Miss Brandi was back this week to talk about the Four Laws and the importance of cedar trees.

We are working on multiplication (matrices and repeated addition).

I am missing some permission forms for the movie next Friday.  Please send ASAP.

 Thank you for discussing lunch time behaviour and the importance of speaking French in class.  I am starting to see some improvement!
