It's Hump Day!

We're halfway through the week already, time is flying by when you think that we are two months into the school year, and about 7 or 8 weeks away from Christmas holidays. The lyrics for the song your child is learning for the Remembrance Day ceremony will probably go home tomorrow. Please help you child rehearse and practice by lending and a round of applause or two. Today we worked on a patterning assignment where we created and extended a pattern. We then took our pattern and represented it on a hundreds chart. In literacy, we continue to work on inferencing, and writing complete answers to open response questions. We use a "4-pen" method, which has the students use four different colour pens to answer some questions so they can check to ensure they have everything they need. We also worked on planning a narrative and should be ready to write our own very soon. In the arts, we worked on Reader's Theatre presentations and made poppies for our Remembrance Day ceremony. Remember, tomorrow is pizza day. We have had our first reading logs handed in, so two students have graduated to Cabin Kid. Each student is to read for 15 min. a night and record it in their log. Have a good night!
