List of good websites for kids! Here are some of the websites we use in the classroom… 1st stop will be our BLOG! The blog is FILLED with games and activities that are based on (outcomes) goals we have set out in the classroom. A great reading site is: Raz Kids-our user name is heshkaro This site allows a story to be read to the kids, the kids to read the story, then the ability to answer questions about the story to check for comprehension. I can go on the teacher roster and check how they are doing and adjust levels accordingly. Then as they do each job, they earn points; the points enable them to buy “cool” things for their ROCKET ROOM! They really love this site!!! A great way to study spelling is SPELLING CITY! You can enter in our spelling words and they provide games using those words. Starfall-This has always been a favourite! LOTS to do here…check it out! There are a million more on line games but these are some that are teacher checked  ENJOY!!!

Reminders to PAY-IT-FORWARD! Chase's mom told me the other day that pay-it-forward is not a one day's a way of life! I LOVED that!!! Check this out: This blog can teach you all about how special Chase was (and still is in our hearts)! Please let me know what you do as a family outside of your home. Chase's mom is very interested in all the good things we are doing so I want to be able to share the kindness with her.

Enough dilly-dalling...

So, thanks to Mrs. Katzell for reminding me to "get to work on this blog", so it was not exactly like that but it reminded me I need to do an update! :) We are still re-viweing/learning letters and sounds in ELA. We also have been learning quite a few of our sight words. THANK you for reading their READING RAINBOWS every night as this helps in the learing of those important words. In math we have re-viewed numbers 1-10 and have now moved on to 10-20. We are not only learning how to print these numbers/words but also what "makes" all of these nunbers which will move us nicely into adding and subtracting. Here are some Updates for October… **we need some food flyers for a lesson this Wednesday. Please send any food flyers you have ‘kickin around’. **Picture retakes are THURSDAY OCTOBER 25th. Please have your child all ‘dolled up’ as we will be taking our class photo that day! If you would like your child to have retakes of their individual shots please leave a note in his/her agenda. **The cool/cold weather is here  Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather as they WILL be outside for all recesses. They will only be brought in once it hits -30 so bundle them up!! PLEASE label ALL of your child’s outdoor clothing and boots. With 4 classes on one boot rack the chances of someone having the same boots is very likely. We also need the students to be able to zip up their own jackets and tie their shoes. Please practice these very important developmental skills. We will be sending home shoes on the weekend for anyone not knowing how to tie so you can practice over the weekend. ** Ms. Walker and I have been busy teaching the whole school about how to “pay-it-forward”. Our pay it forward was giving each teacher on staff an extra prep and doing something special for the rest of the staff. We want to hear more about your pay it forwards. When you use the card your child passed on to you please let me know as Chase’s mom is interested in hearing about all the great things happening! Again, just write a note in your child’s agenda. Go to: to read about all the wonderful things happening around the world! Of course Halloween is right around the corner…here are a few things you will need to know. -The students will come to school in the morning WITHOUT their costume on. They will be given time to change into their costume at lunch time. Please arrange for yourself or someone to come and help them if they need help. We do not allow weapons to be brought to school. If this is a part of their costume please leave it at home for the afternoon. -The costume parade will start at around 1:10pm. You are more than welcome to come and watch and take pictures. After the parade each class will be doing “their own thing”…you can head back to work  -If you would like to send a treat for that day feel free. We will have a chance to eat…the children will be getting a lot of candy later that day so maybe fruit/vegetables, crackers, or cheese would be an option. Please remember, NO pineapple or grapes as we have some allergies in the room. I think that’s all… Miss Walker and Ms. Heshka

We bought a house and have been busy with renovations and last week I was LUCKY enough to travel with Mrs. Effa to the International Reading Conference in CHICAGO!! Besides eating, eating, and more eating...we did take part in some very good seminars, workshops, and presenters. What an amazing experience to learn from amazing teachers that are from all around the world! Tomorrow is Early Dismissal! Friday is the Mother's Day Tea from 1-2pm.

We visited Mexico today...well, sort of!

Mrs. Haberman is in Mexico for holidays and we have been missing her! We were so lucky for the opportunity to talk to her (and see her on SKYPE!!!)
The kids asked her sooo many questions and we learnt a lot of things like, there are lots of mountains where she is, it is hot and you need a lot of sunscreen, and hump back whales live in the ocean and they are as big as a school bus!!!
We had a great time visiting with her (and meeting her mom!!!)
See you soon Mrs. Haberman!

IXL math

Just a reminder to check out the IXL website. (The link is on our school's homepage).
It really is a GREAT place to practise what we have been working on in class as well as to go back and refresh on past lessons.
I can look at how your child is doing and see their strengths and weaknesses, I can then plan according to what your child needs (as well as the needs of others). This might mean re-teaching a lesson to the entire class, taking out a small group, or one one on support.

I see a few of you have been on it. What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments!

I hope you enjoy the BLOG! :)
