Wednesday, September 19

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying your day.

We started our morning with O’ Canada and the announcements in the gym with everyone.

Next, we joined the SK class in Mrs. O’s room for the attendance, daily calendar, weather circle, 100 days of school, and How we are feeling. How we are feeling, is done on the interactive smart board where students move their name from to a section of a Venn diagram to state if they are feeling happy, in the middle, or sad. After their name is moved, they get an opportunity to say why they are feeling that way.

We then had Math. In math today we showed numbers using our hands.

After recess we had Phonics. Students continued to work on their “Aa” sound activity sheet. Students who finished quickly worked on their pencil control activity.

After lunch, everyone went to Gym class with Ms. Cranfield.

Gym class was followed by Topic. Today we continued to talk about the different food groups. As a class, we came up with a meal for dinner. We used Canada’s Food Guide to help determine how much of each food group each child should be eating. Once we created a meal together, the children began to create their own plate of food. Students were asked to draw one or two items from each food group on their plate.









































We ended the day with story time.

Kindly note that the Downey’s Farm permission forms and payment is due Tomorrow, Thursday, September 20. As well as, October lunch forms (as soon as possible), and Terry Fox Pledge forms (September 27). Any student who wishes to purchase a Terry Fox T-shirt, please send $5 so that we can provide them with a shirt, as they are on a first come first serve basis.

I hope you have a wonderful evening.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day.

We started our morning with O’ Canada and the announcements in the gym with everyone.

We then had our I.B. Assembly today. Our Learner Profile for the month is Inquirer, and the attitude is Curiosity. As a school, we talked about what it means to be an inquirer, and how one can be an inquirer. Following was a house game in which students were paired up and were given questions with numerical answers. The numerical answers were shown by forming a group with that number. For example, “How many days of school has it been including today?” The answer is “6”. Therefore, the students formed groups of 6.

Following the assembly, the JK class went into the SK room for our morning jobs. We had the register, daily calendar, weather circle, and 100 days of school.

After recess, we had Phonics. Today we practiced writing the letter “Ss”.
Everyone went to Gym class with Ms. Cranfield after lunch.

























Gym class was followed by, Math. In math today we counted to five, and showed, using markers, what each number is. For example, a student was asked how to show the number 4 using markers. The student then picked out 4 markers from my hand and told the class that they had 4 markers. Following, we had a number writing and searching activity. We practiced writing and finding the numbers 1 and 2.





































































We ended the day with story time. We listened to two stories and listened to calming music for 5 minutes before packing up for home time.


Just a reminder that tomorrow, Wednesday, September 12, is picture day. Students are asked to wear their full-dress school uniform. Tomorrow evening is also the PTA: Welcome Back BBQ.

Have a wonderful evening.
