A busy week ahead!

This is our last week at school before the Christmas holidays. We have some special activities planned for this week.

Tuesday – Business Fair. The grade 6 students will be partnering with us when the fair opens on Tuesday morning. They will help students spend their money at the fair. Some of the items being sold include; treats, hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, Christmas ornaments, handmade board games and cheese boards. Please feel free to join us as well on Tuesday morning to enjoy this great event. All money raised goes towards helping our grade 8’s pay for their special grade 8 trip. Due to the fair, chicken nuggets will be coming on Wednesday instead.

Wednesday – carol singing in the gym. Chicken nuggets will be coming today instead of yesterday.

Thursday – Empathy assembly at 9:15. Carol singing in the gym. Santa will be visiting from 1:30 – 2:30 today to accept items donated for My Friends House. Please refer to note we sent home last week regarding this.

Friday – PJ day!!! I’m pretty excited about this one. 🙂 Periods 1 and 2 we will watch a Christmas movie being put on by the Leadership team. We will also be enjoying a special treat that we will be making together in class! Just a quick reminder that we are asking for no treats to be sent in to the class for Christmas. We want to keep our classroom a safe place to be for all of our students. Below is a picture of what we will be making together.

Grinch Fruit Kabobs!

It will be a fun packed week!

Great job!

Before the concert….


We are so excited for our students. They worked very hard learning our poem and two songs. Well done to everyone!!

In the class this week……

This was a pretty awesome ramp! Great teamwork.

In Math, we are learning about positional words like in, out, over, under, through, near and far.

Cut and paste activities help build our fine motor skills.

Putting beads on these pipe cleaners was not easy but we did a great job. Hopefully, some of these creations made it home for your trees!

It’s December!

This week we have been busy! After watching a short video on how igloos were made, students were challenged to create their own igloos using building materials in the classroom. When we get some more snow we can try this outside!


In math, students are enjoying working with partners to find the probability of an event happening. They have been rolling coloured dice and then recording how many times they got each colour. We are using language like probable, likely and unlikely.

Below are some of the language centres we have enjoyed this week. We work daily on learning our letters, their sounds and new sight words.

And of course, outside time is one of our favourites! Love getting out in the fresh air to explore our surroundings and play cooperatively with peers.
