November/December Mme Dufort and Mme Kavanagh
We welcome Mme VanKats to our class!
The University of Manitoba Bisons are Volunteering with our Students!
Science de la nature
A mini theme is citizenship and what it means to belong. Students integrated technology and geography with geoguesser.com where Students guess where they are "dropped" in the world, by looking for signs, language, roads and animals. Upcoming theme will be Continents, Oceans and specific countries. We are hoping to mystery Skype classes from around the world and ask questions to determine where they are located.
English Language Arts
We wrote postcards to Veterans during Remembrance Day week, expressing gratitude and hope. Students created cooperative art that was featured during our assembly. We read the book, Who's That Man by Canadian Marny Duncan-Cary
Weekly homework is given on Monday and due on Friday. Keep up the home reading! Students have been writing stories at the computer lab with Storybird. They can also use their account at home.
Students participated in a group poem during Remembrance Day celebrations.
We continue to feature sounds and brainstorm vocabulary.
Super hero attributes were a mini-theme to celebrate Mme Dufort and to get the students creative writing jump started. Who knew that super hero attributes such as, great hearing, observation skills, quick reflexes and perseverance also come in handy while teaching?
Warm Clothes and Agenda
Please continue to use the agenda if questions, concerns or appointments arise.
It has been such a pleasure working with this group of kids. Amongst them I saw artists, builders, scientist, writers, poets, mathematicians and most importantly, good citizens of the world. I will miss them!
Thank-you for all of your support and kind words.
