It's Friday!

We had a very busy day today. For the past week we had Mrs. Muir in our room helping us learn about measurement, capacity, mass, and "er" words (longER, shortER, smallER, etc). Ask your child to teach you what they learned in Math this week.

We did not get a chance to add our new words into our duotangs. (Sorry)
Our new words are:







We also started out healthy body unit and are focusing on Nutrition right now. We also found out that we have lice in the classroom. A note was sent home with each student. The cycle is 7 days (at least) so please continue to check your child's hair nightly. If one person misses it, the lice will continue to circulate around the classroom. If you need any help with checking or getting rid of, please contact the public health nurse.

Book orders went home and are due back on Monday March 1st.

Have a super weekend!!

Spelling Words for Feb. 26th TEST

The words for the week are:








Saturday, February 13, 2010


It is Saturday morning and I have just started getting some housework done so I can enjoy the rest of my week off.
I will be heading in to the school to get planned for our next few units. We will be starting the Space and Shape Strand in Math and the Healthy Body Unit in Health. (as well as many other new and exciting things)
I would ask that you keep working on adding and subtracting (in this case, practice will make perfect). You can add in workbooks from Staples or Walmart, online, or using day to day objects like cereal or macaroni. It is so important they have a solid understanding of adding and subtracting for the next few units we will do as well as for the rest of their schooling years. A small amount of time will make a HUGE difference for them.
I also ask that you continue reading. The time spent together sharing a good piece of literature can be priceless and what your child will get out of that time spent together can never be measured. I can not stress the importance of this.
One last thing...I'd like to thank you all for the wonderful Valentines treats and gifts. They were very much appreciated. I have been truly blessed with a wonderful school family!
I hope you all enjoy your holidays and I cannot wait to see you next Monday!!
