April 3

A terrific Tuesday!

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 shared our weekend news with Penguin.

After that we had recess followed by phonics. In phonics the students discussed the phoneme ‘AYay’ and then practiced their letter formation of ‘AYay’.

Our afternoon began with P.E with Miss. Cranfield followed by Daily 5. In Daily 5 the students were given their first Spelling List. The students discussed how to practice for their spelling test on Friday.

Our afternoon ended with recess followed by French with Mme. Viellenueve.
Key information:
