I just wanted to let you know the students worked hard in their writing log books today. Please have your child show you their books. We usually brainstorm the first 3 sentences together on the board and the students copy it into their books. I then ask them to add 2 – 3 more sentences on their own, I try hard not to correct their sentences so you can see how they are doing. I hope you are enjoying writing back. They really like readying your letters.
Thank you to all the parents who sent in treats yesterday. Our class was very lucky to have so many delicious snacks throughout the day and some goody bags to take home. We had fruit, cheese sticks, Rice Krispie squares, candy, chocolate, cookies, cheezies and juice boxes. We had extra cookies today too!
We are sending home the skating field trip form today but it’s not due back until next Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2107. We usually don’t like to send another field trip notice home when we still have one coming up but they seem to be close together. Thank you to all the parents who have volunteered to drive on all these field trips, we really appreciate all the help.
On Tuesday, October 31 all students are invited to come in costume, there will be a Halloween Parade in the gym at 9:30. Some student might just wear something orange and/or black. Our class will be doing fun Halloween activities throughout the day. Your child is welcome to bring a food item to share.
Don’t forget we have the walk-a-thon on Monday, October 30 from 1:00 – 3:00. Please have your child wear running shoes and dress for the weather. We are going rain or shine. Thank you for sending back your pledge envelopes, we need them all back even if they are empty.
This year we are going skating with Mrs. Ogilvie’s class and Mrs. Soychuke’s class on Wednesday, November 22, Tuesday, November 28, and Tuesday, December 5th. We will be going in the afternoons each day. A permission slip will be sent home closer to the date.
Don’t forget we are going to Arts Umbrella on November 3. It’s an all day field trip so please remember to send lots of snacks and a disposable lunch.
We’ve had a great start to the year. Our last field trip to the Fraser River Discovery Centre was amazing. The students learned so much.
