October 19

A tremendous Thursday!

Our morning began with assembly where we sang O’ Canada. Then we had register followed by the calendar, the weather and 100 days of school.

Next we had mathematics where the students continued activities related to our unit ‘Number Sense’.  

After that we had recess followed by phonics and UOI. In phonics the students used their knowledge of the phoneme ‘Kk’ to complete activities.
In UOI the students continued to explore the healthy habit of a ‘washing’. As a class they shared their knowledge of ‘germs’ and saw how easily germs can spread through a glitter touching activity.

Our afternoon began with P.E with Miss. Cranfield followed by Daily 5.

We then had afternoon recess followed by French with Viellenueve.

Key information:
-          Show and Tell tomorrow.
-          November lunch form due October 23rd.
-          Reading Books reminder – please return your child’s reading books on their ‘Read with Teacher’ day.
